Happy weekend! The wine slushies trend from this summer had me thinking me more about easy ways to make delicious frozen boozy treats. And this week's idea is just as simple. Two ingredients. Endless flavor combinations. And while it's ridiculously easy, it's also ridiculously chic making it the perfect finale for your next dinner party. Get ready to whip up a refreshing treat with two simple ingredients.

For this recipe, I'm using Ciao Bella Sorbetto - there are SO many yummy flavors to choose from, but I'm partial to Wild Italian Strawberry Limonata, Alphonoso Mango and Pacific Northwest Raspberry. And the Sicilian Limone. And the Marion Blackberry Cabernet. Luckily, I have a big freezer.

This also lets the flavor truly shine in each sorbet which means I only need a small scoop to feel decadently satisfied. On to tonight's drink....
