It wouldn’t be the start of summer without a frozen cocktail.
We have rounded up four delightful drinks that you can make in the comfort of your home to beat the heat. Frozen sippers are the perfect things to make when having an outdoor BBQ this season. Not only that, but frozen cocktails take very little effort — throw everything into a high-speed blender, and you’ll have a frosty glass in your hands in no time.
Here are four frozen cocktails you should mix up this weekend.
