How do you make a frozen cocktail?
Making your favorite cocktail into a frozen blender drink is easy!
- Choose a cream base or an ice base (don’t mix, milky ice tastes yucky)
- If you’re going the icy slush route, consider using frozen fruit instead, or sorbet!
- Make sure you sweeten – think about adding simple syrup instead of sugar. Sugar doesn’t dissolve well in cold!
- Add the fruit and ice last, then blend.
- Use chilled glassware to keep your drink frozen!
