These Boozy Baggie Slushies Are the Ultimate Summer Hack

By

Frozen drinks are high up on our summer drinking bucket list, but breaking out the blender and using up entire trays of ice just to make a couple of drinks doesn’t exactly fall in line with summer’s chill vibes. Luckily, there’s an easy way to make icy, slushy drinks all season long. Behold: The boozy baggie slushie. It’s the summer hack that will keep you alive and thriving through even the sweatiest of heat waves.

These make-ahead baggie cocktails are diluted down so they freeze to the perfect slushy consistency. They can be batched out, stacked in the freezer and left to chill until you’re ready to drink them, so you’ll always be just seconds away from a frozen cocktail. Here, three refreshingly frosty, super-easy recipes for no-blender, frozen baggie drinks.

Sweet mango, grassy blanco tequila, honeyed agave and tart lime juice come together in this take on a fruity frozen Margarita. Made in a sandwich baggie and frozen until it reaches the texture of wet snow, it’s the perfect summer cookout drink. Pour it into lowball glasses rimmed with salt or drink it with a straw straight from the baggie—Capri Sun style.

Mojitos can be a chore to make—just ask a bartender. But these frozen Mojitos made in sandwich baggies are a breeze—no muddling or blenders required. The easy-to-make mint syrup gives the drink its signature herbal zing, while a garnish of fresh mint puts it over the top. Use its cooling properties to counter ultra-spicy dishes or sip it by the pool (full-sized or kiddie) on a steamy afternoon.
