Alcoholic Slushies Are Making Summers Better (And Boozier)

Dessert for Two

The best thing about boozy slushies is that they give us an excuse to drink our favorite frozen drink, the slushy. Plus, the buzz. While milkshakes are nice and smoothies are refreshing, there's nothing like a sugary, brightly-flavored slushy to make you feel like you're living the summertime dream.
