Frozen Cocktails for Summer

When the weather turns scorching hot, and all you want is a cold beverage to cool you down (and give you a much-needed boozy kick), then look no further than these delicious frozen cocktails. 

Blended with ice, frozen fruit or even ice cream, these delicious concoctions are the perfect way to quench your thirst (literally and figuratively) this summer. So get out the blender, and get inspired to make one of these frozen favorites. 

Two of the biggest frozen drinks that come to mind are frozen margaritas and strawberry daiquiris. But forget those commercial pull-down machines that dispense a chemical-filled concoction; these homemade recipes are infinitely better! Try this Frozen Cherry Lime Margarita recipe, inspired by the delicious slush from Sonic. For a clearner (and tastier) strawberry daiquiri, our Kitchen Living expert Coryanne Ettiene has her signature recipe, and three unique variations!

Pina Coladas are always a summer hit, and this Orange Creamsicle Pina Colada adds in some orange sherbet and coconut milk for a thick and creamy adult beverage  that's more like a dessert than a drink (which is totally fine by us!).

Another dessert-like option are these Adult Root Beer Floats. With a hefty scoop of ice cream (and some vanilla vodka!), this dessert drink is perfect for any occasion. Seriously. 

As a kid, frozen lemonade was the best. But now that we are all adults, we can add in some vodka and really enjoy a grown-up frozen cocktail, like these Frozen Lemon Sparklers. Extra bonus if served with a fun straw!
