It’s Summer baby! That means going to the beach or sitting poolside with a refreshing drink in hand. Sadly, I’m nowhere near a beach, pool or body of water. But at least I can make a drink and about daydream those cool beach waves.
Today I thought it would be fun to share a super simple recipe that doesn’t even need a recipe, it’s that simple! Just a couple of basic ingredients frozen overnight, blended to perfection and enjoyed throughly in this hot weather. It’s already 96+ degrees F here in Texas, save me.
So sit back, relax and enjoy a cold one – slushy that is! Feel free to add alcohol as desired, treat yo self!
