Jack Frost and Cranberry Daiquiri Slushsicles are a fun adult addition to adult theme parties. They would also be delicious served on a hot summer day. Change up the juice in either recipe to change up the flavor. These do not freeze as solid as kid’s popsicles and that is because of the freezing point of alcohol. The more juice you add, the more solid they become, it reduces the amount of alcohol in the slushsicle.
You can freeze just about any mixed drink you like, provided it has a high sugar content. For whatever reason, sugar is required to make slushies freeze. I have tried making copycat Mister Misty with less sugar and all I can say is it turned into a blender full of thin ice sheets. Layers and layers of sheets.
Similarly, when I made Daiquiri Ice using a sugar substitute, it had a weird texture that did not like to stay frozen. These recipes are all better off left for days when sugar consumption is at the bottom of your worry list.
Using the amounts listed in my recipes will give you a semi-solid end product. Thus, the name slushicle. It will be more solid than s lushie, but not quite as solid as popsicle.
The popsicle sleeves can be purchased at Amazon or picked up at Bed Bath and Beyond, which is where I found mine. They were hanging on the wall, near the utensils and ice buckets.
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.
Pour into popsicle sleeves.
Place filled popsicle sleeves upright into glass or bowl and place in freezer.
Allow to freeze overnight.
Once frozen, slushsicles can be laid on their side.
