5 frozen cocktails to cap off the summer

By / Wine + Drinks / August 31st, 2017 / 13

Summer is coming to a close. Part of me feels like it never even happened – anyone else sick of rain and thunderstorms? Another part of me looks forward to the cool fall nights and beautiful colours of autumn. However, today is for grabbing hold of the last vestiges of summer and enjoying it to the fullest.

One great way to do that is to have a frozen cocktail party with your friends. Like I am. This weekend. Here are the 5 frozen cocktails (or “alcoholic smoothies”, as I’ve taken to calling them) I will be serving my friends on Sunday. Hope you’ll feel inspired to blend up a few for yourself.

Note: I veered away from the piña coladas, margaritas and daiquiris for my smoothies, mostly because I’ve been there, done that and wanted to try something different.
