A great frozen drink.

We are having a block party of sorts this weekend. What is a good frozen drink I can share with my neighbors? I'll do margarita's most likely, but want something a little different that's not gonna knock everyone on their ass to add to the mix.

One of my favorite blender drinks is peppermint milkshakes: vanilla ice cream, peppermint schnapps, and some ice to thicken it up.

You can make a virgin version too - just replace the vanilla ice cream and peppermint schnapps with peppermint ice cream. Mmm...maybe I'll go make one right now...

ice (half of blender)
frozen strawberries (8-9) (can substitute frozen peaches)
red bull (3/4 can)
vodka (go with your gut)
sugar (1 tablespoon)

Bloody Marys Might work... at least for the morning after. People love the spicy-bev.

Not quite frozen, but I had a rockin' cocktail the other week - mix champagne with pomegranate juice (I'd guess 2 parts champagne to 1 part juice), and rim the glass with rock candy. Delish.

Any kind of fruit, blended with a ice and some rum, is good. You don't need a lot of rum to make a very flavorful drink. Spiced rum works even better. I like to use melons (watermelon, canteloupe, etc.) because they're more consistant for less money. If the fruit's not quite sweet enough, add a splash of triple sec or Grand Marnier or any other verysweet liquor of your choice.

In particular, canteloupe with some Cap't Morgans and just a splash of peach schnapps (enough to sweeten, not enough to peachify) will make you very popular.

On preview: I made watermelon mimosas last year, kalimac. Really works better if you strain the pulp from the juice as to not impede the fizzy. Mmm.

Speaking of fizzy, whatever you make, consider throwing an ounce of selzer into each glass. Works great to liven up a lot of good summer drinks.

Tequila sunrises are nice, tasty, and the alcohol proportion can be pretty low.

Virgin frozen strawberry daquaris were always a hit at the parties when I was helping to run the alcohol alternative bar. Helps to have two blenders if you have a lot of folks on your block.

Make a float with ice cream and prosecco or other sparkling wine. Peach or lemon ice cream are especially good.

why not pina coladas? You can easily make good ones from scractch, and if the kids want N/A ones, you can just leave out the rum.

Go to the grocery store, get a big can of pinapple juice and a can of coconut cream. (usually in the liquor department with drink mixes.) mix juice and coconut cream. Mix 1 cup mix with 1 cup ice in blender till smooth. Add 1-1.5 shots rum if desired. I like spiced rum better than plain.m These are fairly filling, so you probably won't have to worry about anybody getting plowed on them.
