Frozen Tailgating Drinks
Hot tailgates call for cold drinks.
And one of the big advantages to RV tailgating is that awesome power source we have. Power to run the blender!
I mean, it’s hot, so you are already running the generator for the air conditioner insider anyways. Add a blender to the mix! Just be sure to watch how much power you are drawing, so you don’t flip a breaker.
Now some people might go all fancy on their RV blenders and get the Margaritaville Blender with the ice reservoir.
I mean, it’s nice and all, but in this case, I’ve stuck to the basic Oster blender. I even went with the plastic jar instead of the glass one. It saves a little on the weight in the RV and if it breaks, it won’t hurt the dogs paws – at least, not nearly as bad.
The downside is that eventually the plastic jar will get scratches on it from the ice. That’ll make it real hard to get clean, kind of like old cutting boards. But that just means that you have to soak the blender jar in hot water to kill anything.
Frozen Fruit Slush is Great for Tailgating
I like easy drinks to make at tailgating.
Seriously, no one has time for big, complicated drinks when there is tailgating to be had!
The most complicated thing about these drinks is going to be the frozen fruit. You’ll want lots of these drinks and that takes up a lot of freezer space!
Or perhaps you’ll need to bring a cooler just for the frozen fruit!
- 1 Bag Mixed Frozen Fruit (20 oz)
- 1.5 Cups Malibu Rum
- Ice or water for consistency purposes
- Empty frozen fruit into blender
- Add Malibu Rum
- Blend until reached desired frozen cocktail consistency
- Serve and enjoy!
If your drink is not the desired consistency, you may need to add additional ice or water. It should be easy to drink, like a daiquiri.
