My Favorite White Claw Slushee Recipe

Wayyyyy back at the beginning of quarantine (you know, when we were hopeful that things would only be weird for a month) I saw a bunch of White Claw slushees making their way around the Internet. I've never been super into White Claws, but I'm always game for a good old fashioned frozen drink, so was in. White Claw slushees are basically a combo between a smoothie and a cocktail. They're typically a mix of frozen fruit, a White Claw, and sometimes more liquor or juice. We were in a period of wanting to mix new cocktails every weekend, so I ran off to the store (read: put stuff on my grocery list and patiently waited for two weeks) to grab some frozen fruit and liquor to try my hand at a White Claw slushee.

Well, the thing is, the slushees really were popular on Tik Tok, where the youths aren't really into measuring. So I eyeballed an approximation from a video, and Jeff and I got drunk. Like, drunk. In the middle of a Saturday afternoon. Whoops. Turns out, reflecting back on it, I accidentally served both of us a White Claw plus four shots of rum. A little much for a single cocktail.

So, after a bit of experimenting with different flavors, fruit, and booze, I'm here to present to you my favorite White Claw slushee - the Tropical Sunset. I just named it, can you tell?

Tropical Sunset White Claw Slushee

Yield: 4 

You'll need: 
1 can mango White Claw
1 can tangerine White Claw
1/2 cup Malibu Rum
1 16oz bag frozen tropical fruit (I use a Dole mix that has mango, pineapple, and strawberry)

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend on low until fully combined. If it isn't quite as thick as you want, add a handful of ice and blend on high. Garnish with a sprig of mint if you fancy.

What's great about this recipe is it's basically a non-recipe. Use whatever frozen fruit you have, mix it with whatever White Claws or other spiked seltzer you have. You can also use fresh fruit and add more ice to get the right consistency. Just don't put four shots in each drink and you'll do great ;) 

If you make a new combo that's amazing, let me know in the comments!! Would love to try your mix!
