One thing I used to always look forward to as a kid was the sound of the ice cream man truck coming around the corner loaded with all types of cool treats. Summertime is in full effect and the heat is not being too friendly down here in the southern region. Since we are all trying to find different ways to cool off during this time of year, it wouldn’t be a bad idea if you wanted to add alcohol into the mix (for those of us who “partake”).
With all the thoughts of going down memory lane today, I’ve gathered up a few of my favorite frozen and boozy ideas from my fellow food & recipe bloggers that share my love of adult treats. Here are 28 tasty (and definitely cold) recipes that I think you will enjoy for any occasion. Fulfill those sweet tooth cravings and why not get a nice “buzz” while you’re at it. 🙂 #justsayin #drinkresponsibly
