Slushies = Summertime

Nothing freezes your summer brain more than frozen drinks, but mixing these mind numbing cocktails can seem overwhelming.

DON'T FEAR THE FROZEN DRINK

The trick is to use great ingredients and keep the process simple. Here, we're remixing the tired mojito and making a drink that begs for music, SPF 30, backyards, and best friends. Give it a whirl and enjoy the last bit of summertime.

Here's What You Need:

  • 1/2 c. fresh lime juice (about 4 to 6 limes)
  • 1/4 c. agave
  • 1/3 c. fresh mint leaves
  • 2 limes, zested
  • 1/2 c. light rum
  • ice
  • Mint sprigs, for garnish
  • Lime wedges, for garnish

Here's How To Make It:

  • Add the lime juice, agave, mint leaves, lime zest, and rum to a blender. Blend until smooth. Fill the blender to top with ice and blend until slushy.
  • Pour into glasses, garnishing each with a sprig of mint and a lime slice.
