Four Frozen Alcoholic Drinks Just in Time For Summer

Summer is closely approaching and if we are counting down, then we have 15 more days until summer begins and I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one excited. I’m ready to bring out my cute flowy shorts and decorated summer dresses and soak up the sun with some frozen alcoholic drinks.

Even though some of us may not be spending this summer the way we wanted to or had initially planned, that doesn’t mean we still can’t celebrate the beautiful sun shining down on us.

So, to get us out of that funk—aside from swimming and beaches, another thing that comes to mind when I think of summer is a delicious frozen drink. Who said we couldn’t celebrate our way? That’s precisely how we are going to do it.

Triple-Layer Piña Coladas

Ingredients

3 oz. rum

1 1/2 c. pineapple

3 tsp. agave syrup

3 tbsp. coconut cream

3 oz. lime juice

1 c. ice

12 strawberries, chopped

2 small peach, chopped

Strawberries, for garnish

Toasted sweetened coconut, for garnish

Instructions:

Fill your blender with ⅓ of the rum, pineapple agave nectar, coconut cream, lime juice, and ice. You are going to repeat this method two more times but adding in your strawberries and peaches. So first blend up your mixture without the fruits, then the next two times, you will make the same mixture and adding in your strawberries and blending it. 

Then you will do this again, creating another mix but then adding in your peaches. (three different mixtures for three layers) You are then going pour each mixture into a serving glass, starting with your base mixture. Also, make sure your mix is cold before pouring.
