Keep it cool and tropical this summer with a pitcher of refreshing frosty Mango Passionfruit Wine Slushies. They’re so easy to whip up and even easier going down!

When temperatures soar, keeping things cool with sweet treats is my top priority. That means delicious no bake Chai Biscuit Cake or refreshing frozen Peanut Butter Ice Cream Cake are on high rotation all summer long.

Mango Passionfruit Wine Slushies

Just one sip of these Mango Passionfruit Wine Slushies will transport you to a tropical destination far, far away. The bold flavours of mango and passionfruit really shine beside the wine and keep you cool all summer long.

Whip up a pitcher of these fruity backyard sippers in minutes using a bottle of your favourite white wine, mango, passionfruit, honey, and Cointreau. It tastes exactly like a smoothie and sangria had a love child.

So, whip out those high powered blenders, pick up a bottle of your favourite wine and blitz your way to frozen bliss.

Ingredients needed to make Mango Passionfruit Wine Slushies.

Wine Slushie vs. Frosé

Okay so, it’s not like frozen wine slushies are a new thing. Ever heard of Frosé? It was a really popular summer drink (invented in 2016) made by freezing a bottle of rosé in a slushie machine. Yes, frozen wine is a thing!

The process is slightly time consuming and the wine may lose some of it’s delicate characteristics during freezing. Let’s be honest, you probably won’t be using a fine wine in this slushie recipe since you are mixing it with other ingredients.

A wine slushie is more like a frozen Sangria, with additional liqueur (in this case Cointreau) and added frozen fruit. Either way, they both go down so easily, you might end up with a brain freeze!

Ingredients to Have on Hand

May I suggest you keep your pantry (and freezer) stocked with these ingredients so you can have frozen drinks all summer long?

  • Mango
  • Passionfruit
  • Cointreau
  • Fresh Ice
  • White Wine
  • Honey

Fresh mango and passionfruit freeze really well, making it super convenient to keep them on hand. You can use them either fresh or frozen (as long as you have a good blender). I also buy frozen passionfruit pulp from my local Latino store because fresh passionfruit can be difficult to find.

While I use Cointreau in this recipe (I always have it on hand for margaritas), any orange based liqueur (Triple Sec, Curaçao, or even Grand Marnier) will work just as well.

I cannot stress the importance of fresh ice enough. Please, for the love of Pete, do not use ice that has been sitting in your freezer for weeks. No one likes stinky ice from an ice cube tray (full of freezer aromas) in their cocktail.

Better yet, invest in an ice maker so you can have fresh ice on demand without having to leave the house. Cocktail enthusiasts can get pretty fanatical when it comes to ice cubes, and for good reason. Ice can make or break a cocktail.

Adding honey to your frozen wine is a matter of personal preference and the wine that you choose. If you need to sweeten things up and don’t have honey, a quick simple syrup will also do the trick.

What is the Best Wine for Wine Slushies?

No one is expecting a rare or expensive bottle of wine, they just want a refreshing drink. As long as you choose a bottle of your favourite delicious wine, you can’t go wrong.

Since both the mango and passionfruit are strong, acidic flavours I might suggest a Sauvignon Blanc (especially from New Zealand) which mirrors those flavours.

You could also use a sweeter white wine such as a riesling or moscato, though you will need to decide if it needs extra sweetening or not. If you don’t like overly sweet cocktails, feel free to omit the honey or simple syrup.

Additionally, try using a rosé in this slushie recipe, though I would recommend to pair it with frozen strawberries instead of tropical fruit. Slushies are the perfect customizeable summer drink!

The only wine I would NEVER use in this recipe is a bottle of red wine. This style of wine would overpower the fruit and dull the flavour.

How to Make Mango Passionfruit Wine Slushie

I like to prepare ahead of time by chilling the bottle of wine 20-30 minutes in the freezer, or in the fridge overnight. If your fruit is already frozen, there’s no need to thaw it. In fact, you could add more frozen fruit and skimp on the ice cubes.

Place the mango, passion fruit, wine, and Cointreau into the pitcher of a high powered blender and blend until smooth. Add the ice and process until it reaches a slushie texture. Add the honey or simple syrup as needed, then blend to mix.

Serve immediately in chilled wine glasses and garnish with a wheel of lemon or sprig of fresh mint.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 mango; peeled, pitted, and diced
  • 1 passionfruit; pulp only
  • 1 bottle white wine
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1/4 cup Cointreau
  • 2 1/2 cups ice

Instructions

    1. Place the mango, passion fruit, wine, honey and Cointreau into the glass of a high powered blender and process until smooth.

Notes

You can also use frozen passion fruit pulp or frozen mango instead of fresh.

I used sauvignon blanc for this recipe. If you pick a sweeter white wine such as a riesling or moscato omit the honey and add it at the end if needed.

You can garnish with lemon slices, fresh mint sprigs or lime wedges.

      For some reason, we had two bottles of moscato in the cellar (way too sweet for me!) so they were perfect with no added honey. Will try riesling next!

    I am a sucker for wine slushies, it’s the way to roll in the torrid Italian summer. I’m 100% with you on the choice of Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc. New Zealand has a thing for producing wines that are so wonderfully fruity, I really appreciate it!

      Yes! It’s such a great characteristic of their wines.
