These cocktail slushies — or, more specifically here, cosmopolitan ice pops — are the ideal beach cocktails. Or pool cocktails. Or summer party cocktails. No matter what your summer cocktail needs, these fit. Ice cold, perfectly blended, just a bit slushy… Because alcohol doesn’t fully freeze, the Zipzicle pouches are so much more user-friendly than trying to pour cocktails into popsicle molds. And this way you have lovely individual servings so no cups needed. If you’re ambitious, save the bags and wash them out to re-use.
If you like these, you’ll have to make some wine ice pops, too.
I personally prefer my cosmos to be a bit stronger and to use a lower proportion of cranberry juice, but these are still pretty strong and I used more-than-I-usually-do of cranberry juice to have a liquid in the pops that can fully freeze.
You can make any cocktail you like and freeze in these pouches, but for the frozen/slushie factor, remember you’ll need at least one non-alcohol liquid ingredient to help the consistency. Otherwise, you’ll just have a really, really cold cocktail. (Which is fine with me, too.)
