The weekend is finally here and a tall frosty cocktail sounds pretty tempting right about now. Well here is a light and frosty, fruity, tropical drink that can be made in a flash. Meet the Wine Frothy! It’s made from wine (no hard stuff) so it is light and lovely. You can easily use whatever variety of wine you have leftover in your fridge. You can get creative with flavors once you know my basic method. Try this Tropical Ginger Pineapple Wine Frothy tonight!..
Weekend Wine Frothy
The basic ingredients to a wine frothy:
1. Wine. white, rose or red. (You can use sparkling too, but just be careful when blending – the fizz can get really fizzy!)
2. Frozen fruit.
3. Frozen Juice Ice Cubes. You can also use ginger ale or coconut water ice cubes.
4. Fresh banana. The banana adds a creamy frothiness – similar to how bartenders like to use egg whites. Only the banana is much healthier and tastier in my opinion. Plus it makes the froth vegan.
5. optional ingredients can include spices (ginger or cayenne) herbs (mint) sweeteners (maple syrup) and other accents like lemon juice or zest.
So give a frothy a try and have fun creating flavor combos. Try..
Mint Grapefruit Juice Chardonney
Spicy Ginger Frozen Peach Rose
Apple Lemon White
and on and on..
