In Our Cups: Frozen Cocktails!

Granita 4

Nashville has officially gone from spring to summer. It’s hot and humid, which means that a frozen treat sounds especially good right now. Thankfully, this doesn’t mean you have to give up cocktail hour!

Now, I love a frozen margarita or daiquiri on a hot day, especially poolside, but sometimes I want something a little more interesting. Last year, Amy made this delicious Red Wine Granita, which is like the best adult slushie! Since then, I’ve come across a number of frozen treats with a bit of alcohol to make your summer evenings much more enjoyable.

Peach Wine Slushies from Dessert for Two: Another great wine dessert! Plus, fresh summer peaches.

Prosecco and Rum Strawberry Ice Pops from Sweet Paul: If you are craving a popsicle, this boozy version sounds fantastic

Bourbon Salted Caramel Milkshake from Love and Olive Oil: Or perhaps you prefer a milkshake. Why not add some bourbon!

Tropical Peach Pineapple Slushie from Averie Cooks: A tropical drink is always welcome on a hot summer day. These version packed with fresh fruit sounds especially good.

Frozen Lemonade with Coconut Rum from Cooking Light: I may need to go make this right now, it sounds so good.
