5 Frozen Rum Cocktails You Can Make at Home

The idea of sipping a delicious frozen rum cocktail conjures up images of beachside resorts, little paper umbrellas, and the onset of some certifiably good times. But that level of enjoyment isn’t reserved for tropical islands and luxurious getaways. You can bring the immaculate vibes—and better yet, the mouth-watering rum drinks—to wherever you are, whenever you want with a SLIQ rum ice pop

Let’s dive into five delicious frozen delicacies with some of the best frozen beverages to come out of anyone’s blender.

#1 Piña Colada

You don’t have to like getting caught in the rain, but you will love this piña colada recipe. This is the ideal way to add some fun and flair to backyard barbecues, dinner parties, and naturally, beach days. These classic frozen rum drinks will have you singing along to Rupert Holmes in no time.

  1. Blend together the base ingredients:1
    1. 1 ½ cups of crushed ice
    2. 2 ounces of Coco Lopez coconut cream
    3. 1 Pineapple Daiquiri SLIQ Spirited Ice Pop (made with white rum)
    4. 1 ounce of dark rum
    5. ½ cup of frozen pineapple, diced
  2. Pour into two glasses
  3. Garnish with large pineapple slices (and a paper umbrella, if you’re feeling festive)

For gatherings and group getaways, you’ll want to make enough for the whole crowd (or more accurately, they’ll want you to make enough for them). Just double, triple, or even quadruple the recipe to keep the good times flowing.

#2 Frozen Coconut Mojito

The frozen mojito—or as some people like to call it, the frojito—is another fun twist on a crowd favorite, especially when you add in subtle hints of coconut for a unique flavor profile. While we’re not sure if the name frojito has the same ring to it as the illustrious frosé, the recipe is sure to please across the board.

  1. Blend the base ingredients at high speed:2
    1. 8 fresh mint leaves
    2. 2 ounces of cream of coconut
    3. 1 ounce of fresh lime juice
    4. 1 Coconut & Lime Daiquiri SLIQ Spirited Ice Pop
    5. 4 cups of crushed ice
  2. Pour into two glasses (or double the recipe for four servings!)
  3. Garnish with a few additional mint leaves and a slice of lime

By putting the lime and the coconut together and drinking them both up, as the wise Harry Nilsson once sang, you’re shaking up a classic rum cocktail. And by using SLIQ Rum Pops, already infused with premium coconut and lime flavors, you don’t have to worry about having coconut rum on hand to make this frozen delicacy. 

#3 The Painkiller Slushie

Not quite as commonplace as the piña colada or mojito, you’ll have a great time introducing this tiki bar favorite to your group. It doesn’t just taste like a vacation; it looks like one, too, with its warm sunset hues and fruity garnishes.

  1. Blend these ingredients to make the bottom layer of the drink:3
    1. 1 ½ cups of crushed ice
    2. 1 Pineapple Daiquiri SLIQ Spirited Ice Pop
    3. 1 ounce of orange juice
    4. 1 ounce of cream of coconut
  2. Pour half of this off-white-colored mix into your glass
  3. Add one ounce of grenadine to the remaining half and blend again ultra-smooth
  4. Pour the second layer of pinky-red slush into your glass; this recipe makes one large serving, but you can always whip this up in batches to share with your friends
  5. Stir gently to create a slight pink ombré for that ever-so-pleasing sunset glow
  6. Garnish with a decorative orange slice, a Maraschino cherry, and a light dusting of grated nutmeg

By using SLIQ’s rum pops, these light, blended drinks have only 8% ABV per 100mL serving—that means no painkillers necessary the morning after this delicious Painkiller Slushie.

#4 Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri

 These most popular frozen rum drinks, as always, are best enjoyed with the company of good friends and even better vibes, so go ahead and double or triple this one-serving recipe.

  1. Blend together the base ingredients at high speed:4
    1. 1 ounce of simple syrup
    2. ½ ounce of fresh lime juice (about one lime, squeezed)
    3. 1 cup of crushed ice
    4. 1 Strawberry Daiquiri SLIQ Spirited Ice Pop
  2. Pour into a chilled margarita glass
  3. Add a whole strawberry as a garnish

This classic frozen daiquiri drink makes it easy to get creative with your garnishes. Try a lime slice to highlight the subtle tartness within or some mint leaves for more of a contrast. You can also blend in a few fresh strawberries, sliced up, for a drink that is truly bursting with flavor.

#5 Rock Lobster

It’s not hard to imagine why so many of the best rum beverages are associated with catchy songs from the ‘70s. Clearly, there’s a lot of overlap between the good vibes that come with both a delicious drink and a chart-topping hit. 

So break out the blender and the boombox, and enjoy this tasty tropical beverage.

  1. Blend together these base ingredients:5
    1. 1 ½ ounces of coconut cream
    2. ¾ ounce of banana liqueur
    3. ½ ounce of grenadine
    4. ½ banana, sliced
    5. 1 Pineapple Daiquiri SLIQ Spirited Ice Pop
    6. 1 dash of orange juice
    7. 1 cup of crushed ice
  2. Pour into a chilled highball glass
  3. Pour ¼ ounce of dark rum over the back of a spoon onto the top of your frozen drink

You can choose to garnish with a slice of pineapple, a Maraschino cherry, a little paper umbrella, or all three.
