Posted June 27, 2023 by: Admin
Who can resist the refreshing charm of an ice-cold cocktail? And what if I told you I have the ultimate collection of delightful frozen cocktail recipes that will make your summer even more vibrant? From irresistible sundaes and tantalizing slushies to indulgent spiked shakes and boozy sundaes, we’ve got you covered. Get ready to elevate your summer experience with these sensational concoctions!
Do you have the right stuff?
If you are going to make frozen cocktails, you will need a blender. And not just any blender, yours will need to be powerful enough to crush ice. 1,000 to 1,500 watts or more provides ample ice crushing power. Note: if your blender isn’t up to the task, give the poor thing a head start and use crushed ice.
The Vitamix blender is my go-to for perfect frozen drinks. This one has a low profile so it fits perfectly under your cabinets because you’ll want to keep it outside all summer long.
Iced rum cocktails
Rum is probably my favorite liqueur for cocktails, ice cream or not. Rum has an affinity for tropical fruits, making it perfect for all your frozen tropical paradise-themed cocktails. Many of the most famous rum cocktails ask to be frozen!
VODKA Iced Cocktails
Vodka is known for its neutral taste and mixability. Its neutral flavor allows it to mix well with other ingredients, making it a versatile base. The flavors in your frozen cocktail will shine through when you use vodka.
