In the Summer Time…

on February 2, 2010 in Food and Drink

Whilst we were in Australia we caame across slush cocktail mixes, basically just add the necessary spirit to a cordial and freeze, ready for a cooling drink around the pool later on (Slush Puppie for adults :) )

I remember about 10 years ago Tesco sold something similar (but with the alcohol already mixed)

Anyway the good old Internet has tracked down something similar on Firebox.com…

Ice Republic Cocktails, sourced from New Zealand. Instead of a cordial the mix comes in a dehydrated form, but add a litre of warm water and half a bottle of the required spirit, replace the screw cap and shake you have 1.6 litres of the cocktail ready to freeze (8 Hours).

Having made up my first batch (the Pina Colada tastes great) it’s worth bearing in mind that whilst the instructions say to let it defrost for a few minutes before serving it’s going to take 20-30 minutes at UK room temperature before this stuff is pourable from the bag.

For personal consumption I suggest pouring it into ice-cream tubs so you can scoop it out as and when you need it.

As before, perfect for those summer parties and barbeques, and if you’re going camping or on a picnic these make the perfect cooler block and drink combination 😀
