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.
Slushsicles do not freeze as solid as kid’s popsicles, thus the name, rather than adult ice pops.
The reason for this is because of the freezing point of alcohol. The more juice you add, the more solid they become, as it reduces the amount of alcohol in the slushsicle.
You can freeze just about any mixed drink you like, provided it has a high enough sugar content.
Alcohol has its upper limit in these slushsicles as well. Math is involved in order to reach the upper limit of alcohol. You can read about that math here, it is not my strong suit. One isn’t likely find any upper limits of alcohol to mixer ratios in my freezer.
Once, I made Daiquiri Ice using a sugar substitute, it had a weird texture that did not like to stay frozen. I believe that some recipes are better 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. Hence, the name slushicle. It will be more solid than a slushie, but not quite as solid as popsicle.
Slushsicles should be placed in an upright position and left until frozen solid.
I recommend storing these in a freezer rather than a cooler. If I had to store these in a cooler I would be using dry ice and placing a light layer of fabric or paper towels to prevent them from sticking to the dry ice.

Bed Bath and Beyond also carries these, they are usually hanging on the wall, near the utensils and ice buckets.
Whatever plastic sleeves you choose to use, you need to make sure that there will be no leeching of toxic chemicals when exposed to alcohol.Print
