There are many drinks, foods, and desserts that people mix alcohol with and they taste great, but there are hidden secrets that many people are unaware about. Alcohol can be expensive, so it can be scary to play around and mix it with things if we aren’t sure it will taste good. Let’s be honest, we don’t want to waste any of our vodka! However, I have done some experimenting throughout the years, and I am going to share seven things that people don’t think of mixing alcohol with, but that taste great!
- Vodka Slurpees
Slurpees are a 7/11 gas station trademark, but they aren’t called Slurpees everywhere. Other names for them include frosters, slushee, or ICEE. However, these delicious frozen contraptions are really good with vodka and sour puss. Have you ever thought of mixing alcohol with any of these convenient store drinks? It may sound weird, but they become a delicious, sugary, alcoholic beverage that is perfect for the summer.
- Sambuca Strawberries
This is a very Italian recipe, and it is extremely easy to create. All you need is strawberries, sugar, and sambuca. After cutting the strawberries into halves, pour a spoonful of sugar, and two spoonfuls of sambuca over the strawberries. After that, you shake them up in a container and let them sit in the fridge for a few hours to let the sambuca soak in. If you don’t like black licorice, then this recipe isn’t for you, but for those who do it is a delicious, alcoholic dessert.
- Roasted Marshmallow Baileys
Summer is the time of bonfires and marshmallow roasting, and although marshmallows are delicious enough after being toasted over a campfire, they taste even better after being dipped into a cup of baileys after they are a golden, toasty perfection! It sounds weird, but it is roasted marshmallows dipped in baileys is really yummy, and it is perfect for a campfire night with your friends.
- Rum Banana Bread
Have you ever considered mixing rum with banana bread? This alcoholic bread is great to serve at any friend gathering, whether it be an afternoon or evening event (or maybe even morning). All you have to do is mix two tablespoons of rum with any other banana bread recipe! Give it a try, you won’t be disappointed.
- Tequila Watermelon
Just like the sambuca strawberries, let your watermelon soak in tequila for a few hours for a fresh, alcoholic, “watermeloney” treat. Also, you can use the tequila watermelon to garnish another beverage.
- Vodka Gummy Bears
I feel like a lot of people used to hear about soaking gummy bears with vodka, but the phenomena died over the past few years. Thus, I am bringing it back! Soak gummy bears in a bowl of vodka overnight to enjoy some booze gummies with your friends. Gummy bears are already delicious on their own, so why not add alcohol to them?
- Vodka Cherry Float
As a kid, you must have had ice cream floats, but did you ever think about adding booze? (Hopefully, you didn’t as a child). Now that you are older and wiser, you may realize that adding vodka to a vanilla cherry ice cream float is a really good idea. When you pour the dry cherry soda over the vanilla ice cream, just pour some vanilla vodka (or plain vodka) over the ice cream too. This makes for a really delicious alcoholic drink! You can definitely add alcohol into anything, but it won’t always taste good. This list of weird alcohol recipes is tested and proven to taste delicious, so if you are looking for a new alcoholic item to surprise your friends with, try one of these. You may have never considered mixing alcohol with ice cream, slushies, marshmallows, or banana bread, but you will be surprised by how delicious they are.
