Summer Sangria Slush


Luis The Marinero Sangria wine was recently introduced exclusively in Delaware, New York and New Jersey and when my friends over at Regal Wine asked if I’d like to toast in the summer with a sample, you know me…I had to say, “sí”

I checked online and found several Sangria Slush recipes but decided to make a simple three ingredient slush using the Red Sangria, Ice and Watermelon.



1 Cup Red Sangria

1 Cup Ice

1/3 Cup of Watermelon

Summer Slush

Combine Sangria Red wine, ice cubes, and watermelon in a blender; process until smooth. Serve immediately or freeze.  This quick and naturally sweet (sans sugar) summer slush got me in and out of the kitchen in a jiffy.

Keep It Cold With An Ice Ball Mold | #spon StyloPhora

Hello friends, I hope all is well in your world.

Last month at the Radiant Orchid Garden Party I noticed our hostess had fruit filled ice balls in glasses at the outdoor bar.  I wanted to try one but with all the activities of the day I didn’t get a chance. Thankfully, I now have an opportunity to do a product review for Large Deluxe Ice-Ball-Molds by StyloPhora so I made my own.

StyloPhora Ice Ball Molds Review

I ordered the product on Thursday and it arrived from on Sunday – talk about quick delivery!  Although I was impressed with the quick delivery, I was a bit concerned with the packaging.  There were 4 pieces of cellophane tape across the top sealing the plastic tube which make me wonder if it was a returned item then hand sealed versus machine sealed.  It was obvious that the molds weren’t used, otherwise I would have asked for a replacement.

My son decided to test one first and said he liked it, but then again, he just froze plain water to put into a pitcher of iced tea.  I, on the other hand wanted to add fruit to the mold and use it in a pitcher of Sangria.

There are 3 silicon molds per pack and includes a collapsible funnel.  After washing the molds I filled the bottom half with diced pineapples and mango chunks.  I put the top on and using the funnel to fill the mold with water only to the black lines which allows for expansion.

I kept them in the freezer overnight, however, it only needs 4-6 hours to totally freeze.  After freezing, remove the top half, then squeeze to release ice mold into a glass or pitcher.
