Vodka Cranberry Slush |

Ever since My Official Treat Taster introduced me to alcoholic slush puppies, they’ve been my favorite type of cocktail. Cold, sweet and slushy – although they won’t do much for your street cred. So instead of feeling bad when asking for a shot of vodka in my raspberry slushy with an innocent picture of a dog in a hat on the front, I make my own at home!

There is nothing better than driving home on a hot summer day after spending hours sweltering at the beach, knowing that you have a great big container of alcoholic slushy at home. Trust me – that’s how I spent every single weekend last summer. But it’s not summer right now – it’s winter. And although it might be warm enough to lounge by the pool or soak up the sun at the beach where  I live, changes are, you’re freezing your whatever off where you are.

But just because it’s chilly doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a fun drink, too! In an effort to make this seem appealing for winter, I avoided the summery flavors and opted for cranberry instead – everyone knows cranberry is a winter fruit, right? And who knows, after you’ve spent time snuggling up under the duvet or in front of a fire, you might want to cool down!

Points for anyone who noticed that these pictures were taken on a glass table on my balcony. When I don’t get home until 6.30pm, the sun is setting and I don’t have a blog post prepared for tomorrow, I don’t have much choice when it comes to props, background or lighting!
