Ingredients

  • 1 (750 ml) bottle sweet red wine
  • 1 (750 ml) pink moscato wine

Notes

HOW TO MAKE HOMEMADE SIMPLE SYRUP

In a small saucepan, mix 1 cup of granulated sugar and 1 cup of water and heat over MED heat until sugar has dissolved.  Bring to a boil and boil for several minutes, then remove from heat and cool completely.
When blending wine cubes, use 1/3 of the cooled simple syrup in each of the white, pink, and red layers.
As written, this wine slush is mildly sweet.  If you prefer a sweeter drink, add as much simple syrup as you want.
 

FOR A THINNER DRINK 

This is a pretty thick slush, but if you prefer a thinner drink, you can add some white grape juice to each blend to thin it out to your desired texture.
 

GUM-LESS SLUSHY

If you'd rather not use xanthan gum, feel free to omit it.
