Red, White and Blue Boozy Slushies


What better way to cool off after a long beach day than with a boozy slushie. We love this recipe by Wide Open Eats. The best part about these drinks is that you can make them without alcohol if you want something light or want to give these to the kids. These slushies get their color from different flavors of gatorade and limeade, making them super delicious and hydrating. Make sure you have a blender and coconut run on hand for this recipe. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 3 oz coconut rum, divided
  • 3 oz red gatorade
  • 3 oz limeade (We like Simply Limeade for its neutral color)
  • 3 oz blue gatorade
  • Ice

Patriotic Pina Colada

Another option for a frozen drink is always needed, and the pina colada is a go to for summertime sips (with or without alcohol). This drink is white in color from delicious natural coconut flavors, and looks perfect for 4th of July entertaining with the right garnish. Skewer blueberries, cherries, and strawberries and place across the rim of each pina colada for an easy themed drink. These are perfect to serve in our Personalized Cervoise Glasses. Here’s what you’ll need (recipe via The Best Bite):

  • 1 1/2 cup ice
  • 1/2 cup diced pineapple frozen
  • 2 ounces pineapple juice
  • 2 ounces cream of coconut
  • 2 ounces white rum, (omit for virgin version!)
