Summer is around the corner, and you know what that means! It’s time to bust out the blender, grab some ice and send the kids off to Granny’s. Though, not necessarily in that order.
Here is my list of the top ten best boozy frozen drinks:
10. Tequila Sunrise Pops
Okay, these aren’t actually drinks, but who can resist! You can keep your swizzle sticks and foo-foo umbrellas, I plan on stirring one of the following Top Ten best frozen drinks with a tequila sunrise pop. It’s like being able to eat the candy bar, and the wrapper.
9. Banana Strawberry Smoothie
Take one banana, a cup of strawberries, as much banana liqueur as you can take (you’re not driving, right?) and a couple scoops of frozen vanilla yogurt and, ta-da, a smoothie that will make your kids jealous.
8. Rock Lobster
This frozen concoction will have your head bobbing, even if you’re not a B-52’s fan. It’s a mixture of rum, pomegranate, some coconut and orange juice on the side. Then, throw in a dash of banana liqueur, some grenadine, half a banana, and its go time.
7. Strawberry Shortcake
Unless you happen to be deathly allergic to strawberries, and even then it must be tempting, few things are better than the taste of a good strawberry shortcake. Now, add some crème de cacao, a touch of amaretto, and you have a drink no dessert cart can match.
This is one mountain of snow worth getting stranded in. Some banana, vodka, amaretto, crème de cacao, Crème de Bananes and a couple ounces of cream, and it’s time to dust off the cross country skis.
5. Frozen Mudslide
We have to include one for the chocolate lovers, and the frozen mudslide fits the bill nicely, thank you very much. Not to mention, most anything that includes Bailey’s Irish Cream is probably a winner. Now, garnish it with chocolate shavings? That’s not even fair.
This has to be one of the most refreshing frozen drink concoctions ever developed. The mixologist who invented this one should have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, or a similar declaration of immortality at the least.
3. Pina Colada
Rum and coconut; now that’s a match made in heaven. Clinical studies have shown there is not another drink on the planet that instantaneously transports you to a beach in the Caribbean, if only for a short while, faster than a Pina Colada. I can feel the warm sand between my toes already.
Like stopping by the corner limeade stand run by underage entrepreneurs, a well made daiquiri quenches the thirst like no other. The only problem with daiquiris is trying to stop drinking them; they go down scary easy.
1. Cadillac Margarita
Just thinking about a margarita can get your lips to puckering. Tossing in a reference to luxury brand automobiles is just icing on the cake. It’s hard to say whether it matters what quality of tequila is actually used in a margarita, but let’s face it; given a choice, who wouldn’t opt for a Cadillac over a Yugo?
