Summer Slush


I picked up this "frozen cosmopolitan in a bucket" at TJ Maxx for $4.99. For that price, I figured I didn't have much to lose.

Added a 750mL bottle of vodka and water. Froze over night.

It's delicious! Fruity but not too sweet. I added some Diet 7-Up and a twist of lime.

Perfect for the warm weather ahead!


Marilyn *Pink Martinis and Pearls* :

Who knew! I had a margarita bucket at a party and it was very good. Would make a cute hostess gift too. Way to go trying this out and taking one for the team. ;)

Pink in a sea of blue :

I wondered if those were any good. Saw them at Bed, Bath and Beyond.
I'll have to try it out. The "sweet" part is what I always worry about.

Tina Leigh :

My experience with alcohol has not been good (I wrote about my wine experience around Christmas), I guess I'll have to stick to lemonaide! LOL!

"Cookie" :

I've always wondered! Now I know...I'm going to try this out at our next "party day" on the lake. That would be a good gift to a hostess too.

Wacie's Way :

Good to know!! I wonder if they make a mojito one?!!

CR :

I could use one right NOW. It's been that kind of a day!

That cosmo in a bucket looks delicious! And at $4.99, you can't beat that :)

Needs Help :

That sounds delicious, and what a bargain :)

Unknown :

Some cosmos are just too strong for me (not that I don't like alcohol, I just don't always like to taste the alcohol), but adding some diet 7-up is a great twist on this drink! Cheers!

Katy :

Fun and pretty packaging.

A "cheery" disposition :

yum this sounds so good right about now.

I have seen those, but never really got what they were! Sounds like a fun thing to try. Going on my list right now!

That looks awesome although my husband would claim it to be to "frou frou" for him! (But more for ME!)

I love TJ Maxx. I will have to scope this out!
