Is there anything better than a delicious frozen drink to help cool things down on a hot summer day?
Time to break out your trusted blender, you’ll need it to whip up these boozy treats. Don’t worry though, with few and readily available ingredients they’ll be ready in no time. But do make sure you’re stocked up, as your guests will definitely be coming back for more!
Toss 1/2 cup watermelon cubes, 1 oz reposado or blanco tequila, 1/2 triple sec and 1/2 oz freshly squeezed lime juice into a blender with 1/2 cup of ice and blend until smooth. For a more spiked drink, use 2 cups of frozen watermelon cubes and skip the ice. Serve into a chilled double old-fashioned glass garnished with a watermelon wedge, a slice of lime and a sprig of mint.
To spice things up, you can rim your glasses by mixing sea salt and chili powder in a shallow dish, wetting the rims with a lime wedge, then dipping or rolling them into the chili salt.
Add 2 oz white rum, 1 oz simple syrup, 1/2 oz freshly squeezed lime juice, 3 to 4 large sliced strawberries and 1/2 cup ice in your blender and blend until smooth. Pour into a chilled Collins or Margarita glass. Garnish with fresh strawberry slices, serve and enjoy.
Coconut Passionfruit Batida
In your blender, add 2 oz cachaça, 1 oz passion fruit syrup, 1/2 oz coconut milk, 1/2 oz lime juice and 1/2 cup ice. Blend well until smooth. Pour into a chilled Collins glass and put on your best samba playlist!
Add 3 oz rosé wine, 1 oz ruby red grapefruit, 1/4 oz freshly squeezed lemon juice and 1/4 oz simple syrup in your blender. Quickly blend to combine, then add 1/2 cup ice and blend well until smooth. Pour into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a sprig of thyme and a slice of grapefruit.
Combine 2 oz white rum, 1 oz fresh lime juice, 3/4 oz simple syrup (or more/less to taste), 8 fresh mint leaves and 1/2 cup of ice in your blender. Blend, blend, blend until nice and slushy, pour into a chilled Collins glass, garnish with a sprig of mint and enjoy.
For easier cleanup, rinse out the blender immediately after use — this will help small particles from getting trapped around the blades, drying up and sticking with the sugars from your ingredients. You’re welcome 😉
