Frozen Summer Fun

Frozen Summer Fun

Summer is officially in full swing and that means your blender should be too! Nothing is as refreshing on a scalding hot summer day in Texas than a delicious frozen cocktail!

Frozen cocktails are surprisingly easy to whip up, contrary to the bartenders face when you order that third round of piña coladas! Most frozen drinks have the same basic ingredients:

– Liquor: typically tequila, rum, or vodka

– Liqueur: usually triple sec, blue curacao, or crème de cacao

– Fresh Fruit or Juice: think pineapple, strawberry, orange juice, etc.

– Ice: this is Texas.

Once you have it all laid out in the kitchen, just throw it all in the blender and hit the button for bliss!
