Boozy Blended Drinks for Summertime Sipping

June 5, 2014

Frozen cocktails are so refreshing in the summertime.  The key to a delicious blended cocktail is using fresh ingredients, not premade mixers.  While convenient, mixers usually contain artificial flavors and sweetness which result in a mediocre cocktail.  Fresh lime juice, strawberry puree, simple syrup - these ingredients should be apart of your cocktail creating arsenal.  Serve anyone of these cocktails poolside with a umbrella just for fun.
