“…Take another glass of wine, and excuse my mentioning that society as a body does not expect one to be so strictly conscientious in emptying one’s glass, as to turn it bottom upwards with the rim on one’s nose.”
-Charles Dickens, Great Expectations
_ _ Despite this and my last post both referencing alcohol, in reality, I no longer indulge much. As another birthday has recently passed, my own mortality is coming into sharp focus… I’m having a quarter-life crisis. But every now and then I’ll have a glass or two to relax and even though drinking wine makes me feel like a classier broad, I have yet to develop a liking for it (though I have graduated from boxed to bottled!)… These smoothies are the perfect way to chill out on a hot summer day, and cover the taste of cheap booze.
Servings: 4 glasses
1 cup Frozen Mango Chunks
1 cup Frozen Pineapple Chunks
1 cup Frozen Strawberries
1 Fresh Banana
1 3/4 cups White Wine (I used a sweet Riesling)
1/4 cup Lemonade
1. Combine all the ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth. Serve in glasses that you’ve allowed to chill in the freezer.
