Cosmo Slushy

Ingredients

  • 10 ounce (1 1/4 cups) citrus-flavored vodka
  • 1/2 cup Rose's lime juice
  • 2 cups cranberry juice
  • 4 ice cube trays

Directions

  1. Combine vodka, lime juice, and cranberry juice in a pitcher with 2 cups water and stir to blend. Divide between ice cube trays and freeze at least 4 hours or overnight (the drink cubes will freeze only partially). 
  2. Just before serving, empty trays into a large bowl and using a fork, break up cubes to loosen ice crystals (the ice will be slushlike). Spoon slush into tall stemmed glasses and serve immediately.

White Sangria

Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a large pitcher or other container, combine the wine and sugar. Stir until the sugar dissolves. Add the remaining ingredients, excluding the club soda, and mix well.
  2. Place the pitcher in the refrigerator and let the sangria sit for at least 1 hour (and up to 4 hours). The sangria will sweeten with time, so the longer it sits, the better.
  3. Just before serving, stir in the club soda and ice cubes.
