4 Fruity Whiskey Drinks You Can Make at Home

If you’re searching for fruity whiskey drinks, look no further. We’ve come up with four delicious frozen whiskey cocktails for you to wet your whistle with. From sunshiney strawberry apple to subtle and spicy lychee ginger, these fruity concoctions will have you saying “Wow”!

Plus, if you’ve ever wondered how whiskey is made, we’ve written about that in detail too. 

The Not-So-Secret Ingredient: SLIQ

Each of the whiskey cocktails listed below features a SLIQ alcohol ice pop on its ingredients list, specifically two flavors from our Whiskey pack: Apple and Ginger. 

SLIQ Frozen Pops are perfectly portioned cocktails all on their own. However, given their unique texture and refreshing flavor profiles, it also makes sense to use them in sippable concoction recipes, such as slushes. 

Popping a SLIQ Cocktail Pop in the blender with a few easy ingredients will produce a premium frozen drink with half the work. 

1. Strawberry Apple Whiskey Slush

A whiskey slush is a frozen cocktail made with whiskey (or bourbon whiskey) that traditionally features citrus flavors like orange, lemon, and lime. Nowadays, though, you can find whiskey slushes with all sorts of different taste combinations. 

Our take on the classic cocktail is all about the apple.

This slush is absurdly simple to make, and the end product is decidedly delicious.

Perfect for an afternoon in the park or an interlude in a backyard hammock, here are the ingredients you’ll need to make two servings of strawberry apple whiskey slush:

Ingredients ready? Let’s get slushy:

Combine all four ingredients in a blender, adjusting the number of Apple Whiskey Pops according to your personal desired alcohol content and taste profile.

Blend together and serve in a mason jar. 

Yep, it’s that simple (and delicious).

2. Cinnamon Apple Whiskey Slush

This Cinnamon Apple Whiskey Slush brings to mind fall leaves and roaring bonfires. Distill that festive spirit into a frozen cocktail using the following ingredients (this recipe is portioned for two):

Throw it all together in a blender until you’ve got a smooth whiskey cocktail. Garnish with a cinnamon stick in a rocks glass. 

3. Blended Lemon Ginger Mint Julep

The mint julep is one of the most iconic cocktails of all time, long associated with the front porches and steamy weather of the American south. A julep is traditionally made with fresh mint, simple syrup, bourbon whiskey, and crushed ice.1

Our blended julep recipe put a new twist on a classic cocktail with fresh flavors alongside mint and whiskey.

Take your julep from the porch to the orchard with lemonade and a Ginger Whiskey SLIQ Pop. 

Here are our suggested ratios for two blended servings:

Combine all ingredients in a blender (or cocktail shaker, but make sure to crush the whiskey pops first), adjusting the number of SLIQ Pops according to personal taste. Serve your blended julep in a tall highball glass, and garnish with a spring of mint. If you’re feeling extra fancy, add a piece of candied ginger or a lemon wedge, too.

4. Blended Lychee Whiskey Mule

If you’re already tried the porch and the orchard, why not go to the beach? Our lychee mule makes whiskey totally tropical. 

Here are the ingredients necessary for a pair of drinks:

  • Eight ounces of lychee juice—you can buy it pre-made, or make it yourself with peeled, pitted lychee nuts, water, and simple syrup
  • Two to four SLIQ Spirited Ice Ginger Whiskey Pops 
  • Two ounces of mint simple syrup, either store bought or homemade
  • You guessed it—a handful of ice

You probably already know what to do—Combine all those fresh, fantastic ingredients in a blender and blend them up. Serve them in an oversized double-walled tumbler—they’re ideal for enjoying a frozen treat in the sunshine.
