Frozen raspberries, gin, and lime cordial are blended together with soda water for an adult slushie that will become your new go-to drink.
If you prefer to have this thinner, pour more soda water in as you are blending and if you would rather leave out the seedy consistency, you can sieve out the seeds before serving.
While this cocktail is amazing alone, you can make it a little bit more exciting by adding in a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a spiked float.
Cherry and vanilla flavors taste amazing together and when you use real cherry flavor, you can feel better about leaving out processed artificial ingredients in your drink.

Of course, no Moscow mule is complete without the copper mugs, whether frozen or traditional, so be sure to have those ready!
11. Piña Colada
This frozen cocktail screams summer!
It could be easy to throw a packaged mix into your blender but using fresh pineapple that has been frozen and coconut cream will taste way better with barely any extra time added to the preparation.
To keep a lighter flavor in your drink, try to use white rum rather than dark but dark rums will still taste great blended into your drink.

The “frog” is just a couple of lime wheels that have been lightly blended to add some floating pieces to your cranberry-flavored slush.
To add a little more excitement, you can change up the vodka by adding a flavored variety.
15. Frozen Paloma
A paloma is typically tequila with grapefruit soda, and lime juice.
Sometimes it is grapefruit juice with club soda and tequila.
This frozen version uses fresh grapefruit juice with lime and either lemon-lime soda or club soda with simple syrup and of course, tequila!
One of the great things about this recipe is you can find a fitting tequila at any price point!
Bushwackers are essentially boozy milkshakes but this Flora-Bama version is on its own level with how amazing it tastes!
Even though there is a generous amount of alcohol in this cocktail, including two types of rum, Kahlua, amaretto, and Creme de Cacao, this won’t taste like you are sipping on pure alcohol.
There is a nice addition of ice cream included to add a bit of smoothness and creaminess.
Although vanilla flavored is a good bet, you can have fun experimenting with different flavors!
If you love regular sex on the beach cocktails, there is no reason for you to not love this frozen version!
The same ingredients of the classic drink are used here, but they are blended rather than shaken together.
If you want an extra beautiful appearance, you can blend everything together except for your cranberry juice which will make the bottom layer of your slushie.
18. Chi Chi Cocktail
If you want a pina colada but don’t like rum or maybe don’t have it on hand, you can switch it out for vodka and have yourself a chi chi, instead!
Blending grenadine with your ingredients gives you a soft pink color but if you were to travel to Mexico and order one of these cocktails, it will have grenadine drizzled on top.
Both ways work!
19. Frozen Mudslide
It is hard to decide if this is a dessert or a cocktail, but we would like to say it’s both!
Before you even blend together your ingredients, start off by drizzling some chocolate syrup inside of a tall glass for extra chocolatey goodness.
