Sorry kids. You can’t have these frozen cocktails. They are designed for the 21 and up crowd. For those above drinking age, don’t miss these recipes to beat the heat. Whether you want fruity or chocolatey, you’ll find a cocktail recipe to chill you out. And you don’t have to wait until July to break out the blender and ice. Since it’s hot in Texas 11 out of 12 months of the year, you shouldn’t be afraid to serve these drinks all year long.

Fruits typically take center stage in summer cocktails, but if you favor minty chocolate, Worth Whisking’s frozen grasshopper cocktail is for you. The mintiness comes from crème de methe. A splash of crème de cacao and chocolate sprinkles rimming the glass makes this a chocolatey drink that is exclusively for adults.

Gimme Some Oven shows a shortcut to making a two-minute frozen sangria. You need a bag of berries in your freezer and a couple of other ingredients to make this recipe in as much time as it takes to ask, “Do you want a drink?”
