Wine Smoothie

Yep, you read that right. As if red vino isn't healthy enough;) I became familiar w/this lovely drink six years ago on one of our jaunts to our favorite getaway, Williamsburg. Oh how I love everything about that enchanted place. I am a total and complete history nerd buff. I love to immerse myself in it and there's no better place than there. I cannot recommend a trip there enough. and never fear, if you aren't into the past, there's plenty to do otherwise.


I love Busch Gardens, it pretty much wins most beautiful amusement park year in, year out. Then there's Water Country USA...then the outlets. A complete plethora. EVERYWHERE.


But as foodies...that's what I love most. if you ever take a visit and eat at the famous Trellis restaraunt, you can indulge in the "Death By Chocolate" which supposedly origniated there.


Anyhoo, in our meandering through the square, we stumbled upon a small cafe so Wiki could get his coffee and the sign that greeted me announced "wine smoothie" immediately intrigued and simultaneously skeptical...I tried the blackberry one and my adoration was swift and immediate.




Since it's summertime, I decided to try my own...so here you go.


3 oz malbec wine(or any wine you like)
1 cup sliced berries and kiwi
2 tbsp berry syrup
1 oz berry flavored juice(I used V8 splash)\
1/2 cup crushed ice


Put all ingredients in a blender and blend to desired consistency . I used what I had on hand. You can substitute this in so many various ways. I think next I want to do a sweet white wine with mangoes and peaches. Yum. Have at it, you'll be glad you did-so refreshing!
