Thirsty Thursday: Summer Cocktails

Nothing is as refreshing as chilled, crisp, white wine on a hot summer day.  And what I learned from Alpana Singh, at this years Epicurious Entertains Chicago event, is that sommeliers love a good Riesling for the summer.  Can't wait to make this Riesling Strawberry Slushy this weekend, and it's one more thing off my summer bucket list.

2 cups hulled strawberries
1 bottle [750ml] dry Riesling
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons sugar

1. Reserve 1 cup of the Riesling – cover and place in the fridge to chill.
2. In a food processor, puree strawberries with the remaining wine, lime juice and sugar.
3. Pour the mixture into ice cube trays and freeze until solid.
4. When you’re ready to serve [or drink], puree the ice cubes with the remaining wine in your blender.
