I would ask if you like frozen drinks, but who doesn’t? Maybe you don’t like drinking them all the time, but it’s hard to deny that a cold, sweet, slushie cocktail can make pretty much any afternoon or evening better. And while it’s certainly fun to sip one at a bar or restaurant (outside, preferably), it’s also great to whip up a batch of easy blender cocktails to drink with friends on your porch or out in the yard.
Here’s the tea: If you own a blender, you are capable of making a blender cocktail. It’s literally as easy as gathering ingredients, throwing them in, and whizzing everything together to the perfect consistency of drinkable slush. Plus, it’s easy to swap certain ingredients for other ones—vodka for tequila, peaches for mangoes, lemons for limes, honey for simple syrup—based on your preferences, or what you have on hand.
The next time you invite people over, make sure you have the ingredients for at least one of these easy blender cocktails. They’re so tasty that you can totally make ’em without booze, if that’s what you feel like. Either way, drink up!

This frozen bourbon mule is the perfect way to drink those summer peaches.
