It was 94 degrees today. 94 degrees!
I am the kind of human that gets very cold and very hot. I have no internal temperature regulator. I bundle up when the thermometer reads 60 degrees, and I melt at 75.
Today I sweltered about my house with my dogs. I ventured outside with them briefly, only with the aid of 2 kiddie-cum-doggie pools and a sprinkler. I lasted 20 minutes.
When I came back to my kitchen, I knew I had to make myself something cold and refreshing. Happily, I found a bottle of wine in my fridge and smoothie supplies in my freezer. In less than 5 minutes, I was sipping this utterly delicious concoction- soothed and refreshed.
2 cups frozen tropical fruit- such as mango, pineapple, papaya
2 cups sweet white wine
Raspberries, for garnish
In a high powered blender, combine the frozen fruit and wine. Blend until slushy. Pour into a wine glass, top with fresh raspberries and enjoy!
