The Watermelon Habanero Slush 

If you’re feeling adventurous and looking for a cocktail with an edge, the Watermelon Habanero Slush is the perfect choice for you. Not for the faint of heart, one minute, you’ll be sweating from the fiery heat of habanero; the next, you’ll be cooling down with the refreshing taste of watermelon.

The Blue Hawaiian Frozen cocktail

Invented in Hawaii in the 1950s, the Blue Hawaiian frozen cocktail combines pineapple chunks, Blue Curaçao to create its signature blue color, cream of coconut, Absolut Vodka, and pineapple wedges for a pure tropical treat. If that doesn’t sound like summer, we don’t know what does.

First, there’s the tangy sweetness of fresh pineapple. Then there’s the citrusy, slightly bitter zest of Blue Curaçao. The cream of coconut brings indulgence and velvety smoothness, while Absolut Vodka adds a bold, invigorating kick. Topped with bright cherries and a juicy pineapple wedge, each sip is pure tropical bliss.

Frozen Absolut Watermelon Vodkarita

The Frozen Absolut Watermelon Vodkarita is the perfect cocktail for sunny afternoons by the pool or, well, just about anywhere really!

This summer cocktail favorite blends the smooth flavor of Absolut Watermelon Vodka with fresh watermelon juice, a splash of lime, and a touch of simple syrup for sweetness. A hint of orange liqueur adds a much-welcome zesty kick. So fresh. So good.

The Perfect Frozen Margarita

“What is a Frozen Margarita?” you ask. Many would say it’s THE quintessential summer cocktail. With just three ingredients—Tequila Blanco, Triple Sec, and lime juice—it’s an undisputable classic.

“What does a Frozen Margarita taste like?”, you wonder. We love that you ask. So, imagine the zesty notes of lime juice hitting your taste buds, providing a tartness that quickly awakens your senses. This is followed by Tequila Blanco’s smooth, earthy warmth that balances the citrus. The Triple Sec rounds out the flavor profile with a subtle sweetness and generous orange flavors. The cocktail’s texture is light and icy, making it incredibly satisfying and cooling on a hot day.

The Mudslide  

When it comes to indulgence, few cocktails are as decadent as the Mudslide. Just as the name suggests, this creamy delight is guaranteed to sweep you away with its luxuriousness.

Playful yet sophisticated, the Mudslide was created sometime during the 1970s on Grand Cayman Island. It combines Absolut Vodka, cream liqueur, Irish cream liqueur, and velvety vanilla ice cream. You could just say it’s a dessert in a glass.

Each sip starts with the rich, creamy taste of vanilla ice cream. The Irish cream adds a hint of chocolate and coffee notes, while the cream liqueur brings a silky sweetness. Absolut Vodka cuts through with a crisp, clean finish. The Mudslide is a luxurious treat on a warm evening.
