Whenever I think of all the good that has come to me as a result of this blog, one of the main things I think about is the incredible friends I have made through blogging. Several of my very best friends in the world, I would never have met if not for our blogs. Just two weeks ago, I set off to visit one of these darlings, my sweet Josie, in Atlanta for a truly fabulous girls’ weekend. We enjoyed a spectacular amount of excellent food and drink and capped it all off with a date with Beyoncé. There was so much amazingness packed into a short 48-ish hours but other than Queen Bey, one thing that stood out was rosé slushies. (Looking at this written out now, I think the magical é might have something to do with it. Coincidence? I think not.) During our visit to Krog Street Market, we knew we absolutely had to try the rosé slushies from The Luminary. It turned out they were even better than we had imagined and in fact we loved them so much that we went back again the next day for round no. 2.
Let’s be real: once rosé slushies are in your life, you can’t really be without them again. We both knew we would be working on a homemade version. Thankfully Josie quickly found the actual recipe from The Luminary and we were in business. I’m telling you, there is no more perfect cocktail for spring and summer than this right here. I know I will be making this again and again and again.
It is sweet and tart, bright and refreshing, and easy as can be to make. AND this will guarantee you instant genius/entertaining guru status with your friends. I have experimented with a couple of different methods of making them now and though I think an ice cream maker gives the best texture, it isn’t absolutely essential so if you don’t have an ice cream maker, don’t fret. See my notes below for an alternative method. Now it’s time to stock up on rosé, and I suggest you get started loving these this weekend! Happy Friday! #roséallday
