Peach Lime Slushies

The perfect way to the quench the summer heat is with a refreshing peach-lime slushy topped with bubbly.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups fresh peaches chopped
  • 1 can grapefruit soda
  • 2 Fresh limes
  • 6 leaves basil
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons Maple syrup
  • Optional: Sparkling wine or sprite or soda water

Steps

  1. To make the peach flavor, start by blending the peaches in a blender until smooth. Transfer into a bowl and stir in the can of grapefruit soda. Place in the freezer for 1 hour.
  2. For the lime flavor blend the lime juice, basil, water and maple syrup until the basil leaves have broken down. Transfer into a separate bowl and place in the freezer for 1 hour.
  3. Once partially frozen use a fork to break up the ice crystals in each bowl and then return to the freezer for another half hour. Continue this process each half hour (2 or 3 times) until each flavor becomes a fluffy slush.
  4. To serve, layer the peach flavor into a glass and then top with the lime basil flavor. At this point, you can serve it as is or pour over a little sparkling wine.
