We got a "cool front" this week in Louisiana. Which basically means the humidity went down enough to where you can breathe outside. Either way, I'll take it but it doesn't change the fact that it is still hot outside and refreshing cocktails always make life better. It's Thirsty Thursday after all and I've decided that every weekend should start Thursday instead of Friday. It just makes more sense. And what better way to celebrate tomorrow being Friday than with one of my peach and basil wine slushies?
That's right...wine slushies. Because who doesn't love a good slushie in their life, especially a peachy and boozy one.
I am going to be so sad when peach season ends. I'm addicted and frantically trying to eat as many peaches as I can before they disappear on me until next year. I bought myself a little more time by freezing some peaches for when I can no longer find them at the farmer's market. And those frozen peaches were staring at me in the freezer basically begging to be made into a cocktail, so who was I to argue...I gave those peaches what they wanted.
Sweet peaches and basil, crisp white wine, and a squeeze of lime and you are on your way to a party my friend. One that you will want to have everyday I might add.
I know I say this every week, but this might be my new favorite drink. It's just so easy to throw into a blender and the end result is one tasty cocktail that you are going to love.
