While the ingredients are the same—spirits and sometimes liqueurs, juices, and ice—frozen drinks just get me in a cooler state of mind. And so I set out to add three new frozen drinks to the Epicurious cocktail archives—three particularly awesome ones. The best way to battle the problem of melt is to batch up your drinks in advance and chill the mix in your freezer. But particularly juicy drinks, and any that are lower in alcohol, may become slushy after a couple of hours. Once blended, the prechilled combo will stay slushy for longer, because the cold beverage won’t immediately start warming up the ice the way room-temperature ingredients would.
