7 Frozen Drink Recipes

Frozen drink recipes, such as margaritas, daiquiris, and other blender cocktails based on classic drinks, need very little introduction. Without further delay, here’s what we wish we were drinking right now.

1. Sgroppino | Lemon Chill

This Italian sipper swirls together vodka, Prosecco, and lemon sorbet to ridiculously satiating, giggle-inducing effect.


2. Apricot Daiquiri

This apricot daiquiri is gonna erase your outdated notion of the daiquiri as a cloying girlie blender drink. And it’s gonna exponentially up your summer entertaining game.


3. Frozen Gin Fizz

We know, we know. Blender drinks are for sissies–or so you may think. If that’s the case, take a sip of this stiff riff on the gin and tonic. Then get back to us.


4. Frozen Long Island Iced Tea

Blender drinks don’t get much boozier than this rendition of that raid-the-liquor-cabinet classic. Umbrella optional.


5. Guinness and Ice Cream Float

A marvie blend of bitter stout and sweet ice cream, this inspired adults-only rendition of an old-fashioned float just may take you by surprise.


6. Frozen Margarita

There are those people who feel a frozen margarita is a lesser margarita. We are not those people.


7. Pina Colada

This pina colada recipe is made with rum, cream of coconut, and pineapple, and couldn’t be easier. We also think it’s even better than the classic.
