Blended Drinks & Alcoholics Smoothies Recipes

Whether you're throwing a beach bash, a pool party, or watching an Indian summer sunset, these cool, refreshing drinks will taste like a dream and kick like a mule! For best results, add the ingredients to your blender in the following order: alcohol, juice, sugar, fruit, crushed ice. Then puree until smooth. It couldn't be simpler... or more tasty!
