Aperol Slushy

Serves
6
Total Time
2 Hours
Ingredients
300ml of Aperol
300ml of fresh orange juice
75ml of fresh lemon juice
1 bottle of prosecco or sparkling wine, divided in two
1 orange, sliced, to garnish
Method
Step 1
Mix the Aperol, orange juice, lemon juice and half the fizz in a large bowl.
Step 2
Transfer it to a shallow container and put it in the freezer, gently stirring every 30 minutes until it has a slushie texture – it will take about 2 hours.
Step 3
After an hour, add the other half of the fizz into the mixture.
Step 4
Remove from the freezer after another hour, stir well and garnish with orange slices to serve.

Lime & Strawberry Frosé

Serves
4
Total Time
13 Hours 58 Minutes
Ingredients
750ml of rosé
100g of sugar
225g of strawberries
Juice of 1 large lime
Method
Step 1
Pour the rosé into a wide, shallow tin. Slide it into the freezer and leave it to freeze overnight. It won't set completely because of the alcohol.
Step 2
While the rosé freezes, put the sugar in a pan with 20ml of water. Gently heat till the sugar dissolves – try not to stir it too much as you can end up with sugar on the sides of your pan and not in your syrup. When the sugar has dissolved, turn the heat up and boil for 2 minutes.
Step 3
Add the strawberries to the syrup (keep a few back for garnishing). Take the syrup off the heat and let it sit for 30 minutes. Strain the syrup through a sieve into a bowl (don't press on the strawberries, as this will make your syrup cloudy) and chill until cold. Discard the leftover strawberries.
Step 4
When you're ready to make the frosé, scrape the frozen wine into a blender. Add the strawberry syrup. Blend together for a few minutes until smooth. Pour back into the tin and freeze again for 2 hours. You should end up with a thick, slushy mixture that's a bit like a milkshake.
Step 5
Juice the lime and stir it into the slushy mixture. If it's too solid, pulse it all together in a blender for a few seconds. Divide the frosé between four chilled glasses and garnish with fresh strawberries to serve.
