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.

    1. Hi Judy!

      Thanks for visiting our blog!

      I’m not sure which bourbon recipe you are referring to, if it is the boulevardier recipe on our site I don’t believe there is enough sugar in the recipe to freeze well. If you are looking at another recipe that has juice or some form of sugar, like cream of coconut it should be fine. I would give it trial run before heading to the lake though.

    1. Hi Joan!

      Cream of Coconut is the sweetened condensed version of coconut milk. In the US, it is located with drink mixers. If you are having difficulties locating it, you could use sweetened condensed milk and some coconut extract. You could also use a pina colada mix.

      1. Hi there! I am also from Canada. Succeeded in findign “Pure creamed coconut” in the carribean foods section of my grocery store. The packaging I boughgt says to mix the creamed coconut with hot water “to form a thick sauce”. The package otherwise resembles really thick icing. Should I use the creamed coconut as-is, or should I mix it with water in your opinion? Not sure what the stuff you use looks like. Thanks!

        1. Hi Cat!

          I would probably mix it with water first. The stuff I use looks a lot like sweetened condensed milk. If you find it isn’t sweet enough, you could try adding some sugar or some sweetened condensed milk. Enjoy!

  1. Hi! I’ve seen pictures but have been unable to find a recipe adapted for Hennessy. Do you have any idea how I may go about that?

    1. I am not a cognac drinker so I don’t have any specific recipes for it, but you can generally mix about 1 part alcohol to 5 parts juice or any other non-alcoholic beverage and produce a frozen adult Popsicle or slushsicle. You could even try mixing your Hennessy with Alize and cranberry juice.

    1. I’m so sorry to hear you are having difficulty with this recipe.

      Is there any chance they just aren’t freezing quickly enough? Try starting with cold ingredients. I never freeze more than one recipe at a time, standing straight up in a bowl or cup.

      I also put mine at the back of the freeze. Check them periodically and if you see they are separating, try shaking them up before there is one area that is frozen solid, place them back into the bowl standing upright.

      You can also try adding more cream of coconut or pineapple juice, the less alcohol in the mixture, the harder they should freeze.
