Raspberry Sangria Wine Slushies at America’s Fair

Friday, August 21st, 2009 by Hannah

Last night was my second visit, ever in my life, to the Erie County Fair (a.k.a. America’s Fair). We had an absolutely fantastic night of farm animal petting, people watching and game playing, all interspersed with heavy doses of meats-on-a-stick (oh corndogs, how happy I am that you exist). Fritz even won me the biggest stuffed bear I’ve ever seen, shooting a masterful game of pool!

Raspberry Sangria Wine Slush One of our favorite fair picks, though, was the Raspberry Sangria Wine Slushy (dubbed a Fair Tradition, not that I would know either way). It was so good I had to find a comparable recipe to share with you. Next time you’re thinking chilled wine spritzer or sangria, have a hand at this instead.

Raspberry Sangria Wine Slush
1 bottle Merlot or Syrah
1 cup pomegranate juice
1 pint raspberries

Add wine, juice and berries to a blender. Blend until smooth and freeze. The alcohol will keep your slush from becoming a brick of wine-ice. For faster results, blend the ingredients in an electric ice cream maker until desired slushiness is achieved. Delicious!

    Hannah, sounds like you two had a deliciously fantastic time… BUT, I really have to ask: Are you some kind of communist? You can’t possibly call yourself a Western New Yorker if you’re not calling it the ‘Erie County Fair’ or ‘THE Fair’. HA! :P

    Just teasing ya.

    I’m headed out tomorrow (weather permitting) to hit the “I Got It!” booths and prowling for some good ol’ fashioned fair food (look out arteries)!

    Ed – hahaha, at least I called it the Erie County Fair in my post :)

    Dude – be sure to hit up the “I Got It” booth that’s 3 games for a dollar, instead of the 50¢ per game booths (funny how much game pricing differs from booth to booth).

    Of course!…There’s also the planned trip to the AgriCenter to get one of those ShamWOW-esque thingies for washing my truck… and… OOH! the hour or so staring the the über hot tubs I’ll never afford. Hello, Tilt-A-Whirl, goodbye food! :D

    Love me some Fair!
    Can’t wait.
    Can’t wait.
    Can’t wait.

    Hi! Gave this a try and I quite like it. Is it meant to be sweet, though? Mine is tart and I wondered if that was because my pomegranate juice is pure pomegranate, with no added sugar to sweeten it up.

  5. Hannah Says:

    JC – I found mine to be tart as well but it was just the flavor I was going for. You could certainly try adding sweet pomegranate juice or even some simple syrup to taste, if you’d like to keep with your natural pomegranate juice in the future.

    Thanks for commenting!
