While at the shore last week, we had a few cocktails. We were staying with another family which are good friends of ours. When the children went to bed, the adults had some drinks on the deck. We also played quite a few games of Scattergories. I bought a few of these cocktail buckets, not knowing whether there would be a blender at the beach house we stayed at. There was a blender but no need to use it as these drinks were awesome. When it comes to frozen drinks, I am not a snob. I do not need fresh berries and homemade simple syrup to like a frozen drink. These were cosmojitos which was a cross between a cosmopolitan and mojito. We decided to use vodka instead of the rum they suggested and we loved them this way! They were so easy to make. You mix the powder, water and vodka in the bucket and freeze for 8 hours. As you can see they are quite slushy.
I bought my buckets at the Christmas Tree Shop but I’m sure you can find them at places like Target. There are so many flavors to choose from. I have a Pomegranate martini one in my pantry. I think I’m also starting to sound like a frozen drink bucket salesman!
This is definitely more of a girlie drink. The guys did try them and liked them, however Makers Mark and 7 up was their drink of choice.
