Soooooo this is by far the EASIEST "recipe" I've ever posted on the blog...but that doesn't mean it doesn't deserve sharing! It only takes 2 ingredients to make this sucker, and not only does it look good- but it tastes good too!
What you'll need:
- Red, Blue (+ white if you want) freezies
How to make it happen:
Step 1: Separate your frozen icees into bowls- Somehow I dumped a few yellow icees in the white bowl. Oops.
Step 2: Mash them up!
Step 3: Add an EQUAL amount of vodka to each bowl. Now, it depends on the size of your icees- but I did about 1 tablespoon per 2 small icees.
Step 4: Throw all the bowls in the freezer to harden as much as possible
Step 5: Begin to layer! Now here's the key if you want it to look really pretty: Make sure you add one color, put the glass in the freezer to freeze. THEN add your next color. If you don't do this all your colors will blend together. I learned this the hard way with the first round of red + white. Oops again.
Step 6: Put into the freezer until you're ready to enjoy!
If you want individual size, make these in smaller glasses.
If you're into sharing, put in a larger glass or bowl and serve with multiple straws!
Take pictures quickly- otherwise it'll turn into a purple mess....
Yeah, not pretty- but tastes delicious!
I fully intend to make a rainbow version of this in the future. Because it'll be lovely. Tacky, but lovely.
This isn't the only 4th of July treat I have up my sleeve...come back next week for another red/white/blue drink!
What will you be sipping on this 4th?
I'm always game for a new cocktail recipe!
