This Is the Easiest Way to Make Frozen Cocktails at Home
Frosé, margaritas and more, coming right up!
Although summer is coming to an end, it doesn’t mean your need for a refreshing, iced drink is. After all, the upcoming months will equally require a reprieve from the heat in the form of a frozen cocktail, and thanks to this gadget from Rabbit you don’t even have to leave your home to have one.
The frozen cocktail maker is far more simple to navigate than you might think. Comprising only a silicone container (wrapped in a neoprene cover), stirring stick and lid, this frozen cocktail maker requires even fewer steps than it does parts. Let’s take homemade frosé for example — this classic summer drink can be made by pouring your favorite rose into the carafe, covering it with the lid and freezing overnight. To see if it holds up to the beyond easy claims, we put this gadget to the test.
While the directions weren’t overly clear (“overnight” doesn’t equal the same hours to everyone, and I didn’t want to have my frosé first thing in the morning), it was rather intuitive while using. I put the maker in the freezer first thing in the morning and gave it about 10 hours to sit before pulling it out for dinner. The texture was exactly what I would expect from a bar-served glass of frosé, and it stayed frozen for the duration of the drink. I noticed the frosé was definitely more potent toward the bottom of the carafe, but quickly mixing with the stir stick alleviated the problem of having a diluted first glass.
During another test, I left the carafe overnight and during the day, meaning it sat in the freezer for almost a full 24 hours. To my relief, it was the same texture as the previous test and, while it had separated a little more, it was still delicious and icy after a quick stir.
If frosé isn’t your thing, this frozen cocktail maker can be used for much more. Included in the kit is a recipe book a multitude of frozen drinks including pina coladas, margaritas and more. The carafe holds four-to-six servings, making it a great way to easily make a fun drink for the whole table. Whether you’re soaking up the nice weather next to the pool or with as many outdoor dinners as you can squeeze in, we can assure you it will be more refreshing with a homemade frozen cocktail in-hand.
