Frequently Asked Questions
How To Make A Vodka Slush?
The quickest, easiest way to make a vodka slush, or any type of alcoholic slush, is to use a blender.
Simply blend your chosen beverage in the blender with a load of ice to achieve that thick, slushie texture, and then pour into a cup. Simple!
How Do You Thicken A Slushie?
If you need to thicken a slush, you could always blend the beverage with some ice in a blender.
If the slush is dairy-based, you could always add some ice cream or heavy cream to thicken the texture. This will give the slush more of a milkshake-type consistency.
Does Alcohol Freeze?
All alcohol will freeze when the temperature is low enough, but alcohol with a proof more than 50 will not solidify in a regular freezer, e.g., the one you probably have in your kitchen.
Most stronger spirits you can purchase, like vodka and gin, fall within this category. However, if left long enough in the freezer, beers, wines, and liqueurs will eventually freeze and harden.
Can You Put Alcohol In A Slush Machine?
Yes, you can add alcohol to most slush machines without an issue. However, to save time, you would probably be better off creating the slush in your machine first, and then stirring the alcohol separately.
This is because alcohol takes a longer time to freeze, so it will slow down the time that the slush takes to freeze overall.
So, there we have it. Those were our top picks for tasty, grown-up slushies to enjoy during the upcoming summer.
Whether you prefer cocktails, punches, or a simple, cold beer, there is something for everybody (over the age of 21) here in this list.
If you have a slush machine, or a blender, you have no excuses. Make some delicious slushie drinks right this second! What are you waiting for?
