Tropical Alcoholic Slushies

It’s 5 o’clock somewhere. I just know it. These vodka slushies go down so easily and are the perfect summer refresher.

Even though they’re a frozen drink, which are prone to being both skimpy on the booze and heavy on the sugary syrups, these alcoholic slushies are neither. There’s plenty of booze and no added sugar, a win-win.

I used Malibu, pineapple vodka, and peach schnapps. The Malibu gives the drinks their signature tropical vibe. Something about Malibu drinks just make you feel like you’re on vacation. 

The peach schnapps brings out the peachy flavor, and peach and pineapple are such a great combo.

These alcohol slushies are perfect for all those ripe, juicy summertime peaches. 

I happened to make the slushies during a 95F heat wave we were having in San Diego last week and at 11am after this photo shoot was over, it was definitely 5 o’clock in my kitchen.

Make them for Memorial Day, the Fourth of July, your next pool party or bbq, or just because. Just think of all the Vitamin C you’ll be getting! 

They go down so incredibly easy and will sneak up on you. That’s the point though.

What’s in Peach Pineapple Alcoholic Slushies? 

To make this tropical drink with vodka and schnapps, you’ll need: 

  • Frozen peaches
  • Frozen pineapple 
  • Malibu rum 
  • Pineapple vodka 
  • Peach schnapps 
  • Grenadine (for drizzling) 
  • Maraschino cherries (to garnish)

How to Make Alcoholic Slushies 

This tropical peach schnapps drink couldn’t be simpler to make! Just add the frozen fruit and liquors to the canister of a blender and blend until smooth. 

Divide mixture between two glasses and optionally drizzle with grenadine and garnish with cherries.

Can I Omit the Alcohol in This Recipe? 

Of course! You can keep the slushies virgin by replacing the alcohol with pineapple or orange juice, but I prefer not to. I already drink plenty of smoothies.

Can I Save Leftover Slushies? 

Yes! Extra vodka slushie mixture can be kept in the freezer for up to 1 month by placing freezer-safe glasses inside a large ziplock bag to avoid freezer smells. Allow to thaw for about 30 minutes before stirring and serving.

Tips for Making Tropical Alcoholic Slushies 

I had the pineapple vodka on hand, but regular vodka or your favorite flavored vodka from raspberry to citron will work.

I was going to flood the slushies with grenadine for a sunset-like effect but refrained since I was trying to not add sugar. If you don’t care, flood away. It’ll taste great and look pretty. Instead I just went with a couple simple maraschino cherries. I love them.

In advance of making the drinks, I recommend slicing the peaches and pineapple and putting them in a plastic container or Ziplock and freezing. That way you’re blending frozen fruit so you don’t need to add ice, which would water down the slushies.

Or just start off with frozen bagged fruit, which is what I did. Trader Joe’s frozen pineapple chunks never tasted so good.

  1. I made the recipe for “Tropical Peach Pineapple Slushies” and honestly can say that It`s really, really good drink for the hottest days! Thanks for sharing these summer cocktails with us.

  2. No sugar added doesn’t always mean no sugar. This is still a very sugary drink… This is definitely not for diabetics. I estimate about 35 grams (1 1/4 ounces) of pure sugar in each drink. Around 25g for each of the fruits, and 12g in the Malibu and 12g in the peach schnapps. Divided into 2 glasses = 37g. And it has a lot of fructose in it which is the worst sugar health wise.

    1. Not every drink is for every person, and sounds like it may not be for you, but it’s still better than using those pre-made drink mixes with the first ingredient being corn syrup. At least every ingredient here is ‘natural’ and ‘real’ rather than you know pina colada mix for example where nothing is ‘real’. No ADDED sugar is correct in this recipe.

  3. Oh my gosh! This looks phenomenal. Can’t wait to try it. I’m thinking about substituting mangos for the peaches for a very tropical version. Thank you!

  4. Yep, I could probably put down nineteen of these. I LOVE slushies; they remind me of summers as a kid slurping up Slurpees from 7-11 after walking up there in a bathing suit and towel. So delicious!

    1. And in Miami, we would have!!! Agh. Timing. And yes these are totally like a 7-11 Slurpee! We happen to live a few blocks from a 7-11. Ahem :)

  5. How refreshing! You know I could have this all year long. And now that I’m moving back to LA, it’s practically summer 365 days of the year so I may just make this once a week! :)

  6. Averie, you’re speaking my language here (the language of booze). This drink looks absolutely delicious and your photos are stunning. You must have one heck of a powerful mixer because your drink looks so smooth as opposed to icy. I don’t think I’ll be able to wait for fresh summer fruit before making this. I better get myself to the store for some frozen stuff!

  7. The slushie texture (if you can call it that) makes me think summer summer summer! I love it -so refreshing and icy. These are almost to pretty to drink! But not quite ;)

  8. I love all your gorgeous smoothie recipes Averie! This one looks great. Peach + pineapple is such a great combo that I don’t think I would have thought of. And I actually have both right now…so definitely need to try this out! Pinned :) I hope you are having a great weekend!

  9. These look so refreshing on top of beautiful! It’s so hot in AZ already and these will be perfect for the rest of the summer. I love the fact that there is no sugar added. Thanks Averie!

  10. Pineapple makes the best slushies! This one looks so fruity and delicious! Beautiful pictures, too. Pinned!

  11. We had that same heat wave up in NorCal last week! Although I was in Miami avoiding the tornado — so crazy! — so I missed it… But I suppose the heat wave didn’t want me to feel left out and returned again this weekend. 100°F both Saturday AND Sunday. No baking for me! ;) The lighting in your photos looks gorgeous! I love how it comes from behind and illuminates the slushie. So dreamy!

    1. Thanks for noticing the lighting, Amy, and sounds like you must have had a great trip to Miami!

  12. I would have LOVED one of these today! It went from being 60 and overcaset for the last month to 90 today! And I spent the afternoon in a packed gymnasium for 2 hours….dehydrated, sweating, and unhappy.

    Then went to happy hour on the deck of a bar overlooking Lake Superior. Not too shabby, but this drink would have gone down really fast! ;)

    1. Leave it to the midwest to go from 60F to 90F, all in a day. San Diego the past week now has been back to the 60F and overcast. I’ve put off photo shoots for the past 3 days b/c it has been May Gray/June Gloom and just damp and icky. I will take those hot 95F Santa Ana’s any day :) Packed hot gyms, no A/C of course, a deck on Lake Superior, wow, this sounds like my childhood and commencement time of year!

  13. I’m not into pineapple that much but I LOVE TJ’s frozen pineapple in smoothies. Something about pineapple juice just makes me happy – especially with RUM!

  14. This looks perfect for a hot summer day! I love a delicious cocktail. Also on a winter day to daydream about those days…

  15. These slushies look super refreshing! We are fed in need of some tropical flavors here in the east coast!

  16. Oh these look so good…now if the sun would just come out and warm us up in CT these would be perfect to drink out on the deck. Peaches and pineapple are so good together and Malibu rum just screams summer.

  17. Oh man – I bet the peach schnapps and pineapple vodka go down so well together!

  18. I think you just introduced me to my new favorite Summer drink! Yes, yes you did! I love that these have no added sugar and, unlike the nasty ones you get at restaurants, there is only really fruit and no sketchy “flavored syrups”! Bravo!

  19. Oh gosh, these look amazing! I’m pretty sure it’s perpetually after 5pm (as far as drinking is concerned) on a holiday weekend!

  20. Wow! It looks like summer!!! Malibu + Pineapple = Summer :) I need to try this!!!

  21. I have to admit, your boozy drinks are some of my favorite recipes! These are gorgeous, and calling my name!

  22. Ahh man these slushies have got my name ALL OVER IT. I’m definitely craving one of these now!

  23. You took the words right out of my mouth. I was just about to say this is like a boozy smoothie, which is just amazing!

  24. Well these came just in time for the weekend! Love this drink. It’s 5 o’clock somewhere for sure!

  25. If I’m going to drink, this is just my style!! Beautiful color–the maraschinos are the perfect garnish. I managed to catch a cold last week and am on the uphill swing now, but a shot of alcohol has always been a better cough suppressant than any yucky tasting cough syrup. So, by my logic, these would be fun, delicious, and medicinal in my current state!
