Wicked Summer Fun Guide

Not that anyone needs a reason to break out the blender on a hot summer day, but rather than do your old standby of dumping a bottle of tequila-infused margarita mix and a couple scoops of ice, let’s get a little more unique.

Now, we’re not saying there isn’t a time and place for the quick and easy stuff, there certainly is. But if you’re like us, you want to give something different a try. If you’ve got a bottle of vodka taking up space on a liquor shelf somewhere in the house, here are five easy ways to make what could be your goto beverage of the summer.


1. Frozen Vodka Lemonade (6 Servings)

1 pint lemon sorbet
1 cup vodka
1 cup lemonade
1 pint ice
Blend and enjoy


2. Frozen Rosé or Frosé (6 Servings)

1 (750 mL) bottle of rosé,
1/2 cup vodka
1/2 cup Simple Syrup

3 cups frozen strawberries

Combine bag contents and frozen strawberries and blend the next day
Yes, this requires some prep work, but it’s well worth it!
