This mix is another crowd pleaser and a secret weapon because it’s so good. Mai Tai is made with Pineapple and mango. Use dry white wine or hard liquor. A classic Mai Tai is made with Rum. Coconut rum would be an excellent choice.
Each slush mix makes Seven 8oz glasses. That’s 56oz of goodness from a 5.5oz drink mix!
To make wine slushies using the full pack, fill the blender with ice first, add the dry slush mix package and add a bottle of wine and blend for 30 seconds. You can use wine or hard liquor, vodka, rum, or gin. For wine, use a dry white wine – chardonnay, pinot grigio works on all flavors. Use a dry red (merlot, bordeaux, zinfandel, or pinot noir) or dry white for the Sangria.
If you want to do only half a batch, just cut the directions above in half.
How To Make Wine Slushies
If using hard liquor, fill the blender with ice, add dry mix slush package, add 1 ½ C of hard liquor, add 1 ½ C water and blend. Seltzer water is even better. This will give you 3 cups of liquid that a regular bottle of wine has (750 ml). Each slushie will have roughly a shot of hard liquor. If you want more, adjust the proportions as you see fit...you know who you are :).
For a little extra treat in the Pina Colada, add 3-4 oz of pineapple juice...that's about 1/2 of a small Dole can.
I gave two as a gift, as of now I have not heard she made them. I’m sure she will enjoy them when she does!
