      Love the idea of having instant Alcoholic Frozen Daiquiris, margaritas and pina coladas? Here's a simple do it yourself recipe for those delicious mixed drinks- except these will Fill your Red Solo Cups to the top!
      These are great for parties, camping, fishing, BBQ bashes or just sitting poolside in the summertime. Strawberry Mixer is frequently on sale around Memorial Day, 4th of July and Labor Day. If you prefer, you can use fresh crushed strawberries with 1 Tablespoon Sugar mixed in. The mixer happens to be cheaper in our area than fresh strawberries currently, so we're opting to use that instead.

      We prefer these for several reasons- #1- They're 1/3 of the price to make at home. #2- you don't need 2 of them to fill a Red Solo Cup, #3- You have control over how "sweet" you want them to be.

      Strawberry Daiquiris:
      2 oz Rum
      4 oz Strawberry Mixer
      1 Red Solo Cup Full to the top with Ice Cubes

      Frozen Margarita's
      2 oz Tequila
      4 oz. Margarita Mix
      1 Red Solo Cup filled to the top with Ice Cubes

      Pina Colada's
      2 oz Run
      4 oz Pina Colada Mix
      1 Red Solo Cup filled to the top with Ice Cubes

      Fuzzy Navels
      2 oz Peach Schnapps
      6 oz OJ
      1 Red Solo Cup Filled to the top with Ice Cubes

      Combine in a blender until smooth, pour into ziploc freezer bag or into a vacuum seal bag and seal careful (without vacuuming the liquid up. Freeze until ready to use.

      When Serving Daiquiri's you can rub a fresh lime wedge or a strawberry on the rim and dip it into sugar before pouring the drink into it.

      Don't forget to salt the rim for margaritas too!


      To Enjoy: Remove from freezer, place on counter for 3-4 minutes, palpate the bag for a minute or so and then pour into a solo cup.

      Just a note, this does NOT work well for "Virgin" drinks because it will freeze solid, rather than remain "Slushy".



      The possibilities are endless, have fun with it!

        I dont know I never think of these things myself. I bought some mixers a couple months ago when they were on sale for $1 a bottle. I don't like how sweet they are on there own so we usually add fresh fruit or use less of the mixer to alter the sweetness. I also dont care for the super sweet syrup-like texture of the store bought frozen drinks so I think this one will be a hit at our next bbq too.
