Happy Hour: A Slushy Cocktail for Two

Apr 3, 2020

Provisions are low.   The shelves are bare.   And we are down to our last bottle of wine, a bottle of white that someone must have given us as a gift.  What to do?  How to survive?

With ingredients and grocery store trips limited, new recipes must be found.   This one from Dessert for Two makes a wine slushy with just two ingredients: frozen fruit and wine.  That’s it.

I don’t know what your weather is like, but ours is still chilly.  Freezing might be a better descriptor.  I have to layer up just to take the pups for a walk.  (They love shelter-in-place by the way; Avery’s lost five pounds.)  And this LL. Bean Cozy Pullover in spruce is one of my favorite pieces (also in plus and petite).

    Oh man, what a great post. I’m not much of a wine drinker but I’ve had a bottle of white in my fridge for ages and I definitely have frozen fruit, so I’m going to have to try that wine slushy!

    Also, I own that pullover and it’s fantastic. More of a tunic-length on me (I’m 5’3″ and must have bought before they added petite sizes, womp) but perfect with leggings.

    I just heard on NPR this morning that wine companies are taking a huge financial hit (like every other company). They pointed out that you can order wine direct from the wine company, and many are offering free shipping. They were practically begging listeners to keep ordering wine so they can stay in business!

      My local wine store delivered pre-pandemic and is trying to keep their business afloat by expanding delivery and pick up while non-essential businesses are closed.

    That LL Bean pullover is one of my very favorite sweatshirts…this pandemic may very well result in me owning it in every color! 😀

    I placed a wine order on Vivino, which worked out great.

From the rooftop deck of my D.C. hotel I can see it all. The Capitol building, where I worked on and off for a decade. My first apartment where my three-doors-down neighbor was a young Senator Obama. My second apartment building where I bounced from unit-to-unit as my salary rose and I was finally able […]
