I don't know about you, but I firmly believe that every cocktail is better when it's a slushy. (OK, maybe not every one, but all my favorites.) Case in point: this sex on the beach slushy. It's got everything you expect in a sex on the beach cocktail, but by using frozen fruit and some ice, it becomes a refreshing slushy instead of just a standard cocktail. It's perfect for backyard lounging, sitting by the pool, or if you're me, relaxing on a fire escape in the middle of New York because it's the only outside space you have.
This recipe is incredibly easy to put together. After you put your cranberry juice in your glass, you just throw the rest of the ingredients into a blender and blend. That's truly it. You can garnish your drink with orange slices, maraschino cherries, or any other fruit that makes you happy, or you can just leave it bare and chug it accordingly. Either way is perfect. You can also switch up your liquors if you want — I tried it with peach vodka for an extra kick of peach, and it was absolutely delicious!
You can adjust the amount of liquid to make a thicker or smoother slushy.
