Frozen Boozy Bomb Pop Drink

If you’re looking for a good way to get your 4th of July on, this will definitely do the trick!

This drink is so BOMB… literally.

It’s crazy strong but super refreshing! We took these drinks outside and enjoyed ourselves much more than usual in the Midwest heat.

It really does taste just like a bomb pop, but alcohol makes everything better!

I love this drink, and I’m pretty sure I could drink it all day if I had to (and you never know… there could be some sort of life or death situation where that might happen). ;)

I’m definitely going to set aside some time to blend up a batch of these blissful frozen drinks for our 4th of July guests.

If you plan on drinking more than one of these, be sure to have a DD!

Bill and I hope you have a super fun, safe and happy 4th!

Author:
Recipe type: Cocktail
Serves: 4-6 depending on glass size
Ingredients
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 ounces vodka
  • 2 ounces freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 4-6 cups ice
  • 4 ounces blue raspberry vodka
  • 3 ounces cherry vodka
Instructions
  1. To make a simple syrup, combine sugar and water and heat in a small saucepan until sugar dissolves. Cool completely in refrigerator.
  2. In a blender add clear vodka, lime juice, 2 ounces simple syrup, and 1½ cups of ice; blend on high until it reaches a "slush like" consistency, adding more ice if necessary. Pour into a container and place in the freezer. Next, in the blender add blue raspberry vodka, 2 ounces simple syrup, and 1½ cups of ice; blend on high until desired consistency is reached, and pour into a container and place in freezer. Then, in the blender add cherry vodka, 2 ounces simple syrup, and 1½ cups of ice; blend until desired consistency is reached and place into a container and place in freezer.
  3. Let chill in freezer until ready to use.
  4. To "assemble" drink layers, spoon some of the blue in the bottom of a glass, then white, then red on top.
Notes
You may add less or more booze to taste, and add more ice to each layer if necessary. You can freeze this until it's ready to use, but the consistency will change a bit. To make a faster simple syrup: place sugar and water in a sealed container and shake well until sugar is dissolved.

    You might want to reconsider the shot – using a flag as a coaster disrespects the flag. Using stick flags in the drinks might be a happy medium. But the drink? No changes necessary!

      I agree with Megadeal. Please remove the drink from the flag.

        For the record, I will have to disagree, as the photographer of this shot. I didn’t use my large flag in this photo that I proudly hang in my front yard in the warmer months – I used a tiny “stick flag” with the stick removed from the sleeve. It was a 50 cent prop that I purchased specifically for this shoot and now it’s crinkled up in the junk drawer in my kitchen (does that make me unpatriotic?). I wanted to state that I mean no disrespect from my tiny flag prop. Please take it for what it was intended to be, just a fun summer drink. :)

          It doesn’t matter the size of the flag. It doesn’t matter the material used to make the flag. It doesn’t matter how much you paid for it. It is flag of the United States. It is a highly treasured symbol of a nation that men and women, many whom I called brother or sister, died for.

          This is utterly disrespectful and I will insist you remove the image.

            Having to reply to myself since I can’t reply to Ashley.

            Ashley, I’m sorry you feel I’m being disrespectful to insist Rachael treat the flag with respect. No one is making you read my comments.

        • Megadeal June 20, 2013, 10:10 pm

          As you can tell, it’s a very meaningful issue to people. That’s why I tried to state it simply and just suggest an alternative. I knew it wasn’t intentional.

          A friend of mine works in a museum with old photographs, etc. and when discussing patriotic bunting, she mentioned a picture she came across. It was pre-flag etiquette and there was President Lincoln using a flag as a tablecloth. Different times, same flag, different perception. I’d say that if you wouldn’t do it with a large flag, you probably wouldn’t want to do with a small flag. Plus flag etiquette is so easily accessed online. But now that you know, you may face harsher criticism. Just a heads up!

          Oh please people!!! There are U.S. flag cakes we cut into, paper plates we eat on and then throw away and napkins like this too!!! Get over yourselves and off your high horses. At least she saved the flag for additional use instead of chucking it in the trash like all the OTHER decorations for this holiday end up each year.

          Have a drink!!! Chill!

    ‘It’s now crinkled up in the junk drawer’…this statement shows your utter disregard for proper flag etiquette. I’m the third generation of four to have served in the military, with a son and daughter-in-law currently serving in Afghanistan, and I find your casual treatment of the flag (even a tiny one) ignorant and maybe even pedantic. I’d like to ask you to please remove the picture with the flag. The beverage will still be a ‘fun summer drink’ without your casual mistreatment of the flag and what it represents. Would you treat a picture of a loved one in the same manner, i.e. putting the picture under a drink and then crumpling it up? Think of that flag as a representation of all the loved ones serving our country, and those that have died in that service. That is what I find disappointing in your presentation…you don’t understand what it represents.

    if the ‘flag’ doesn’t have the correct number of stars and stripes, is it still a flag? I work for a store that sells those flags for 50 cents apiece and almost none of them have the correct number of stars and stripes, which is half the reason they are so cheap…also, they’re made in china….

    Thank you to those of you for taking the time to share your opinions regarding my photos… and for making me understand what this means to you. I get it. I will replace these photographs at my earliest convenience, but in the meantime, please respect my right to freedom of speech as I am the owner of this website and I’m allowing you all freedom of speech by not deleting your comments and allowing them to be seen.

    Just an FYI – I’m battling a serious health condition right now, so I’d like you to know that these photos may not come down in the time frame that some of you would like. I will appreciate your patience in the meantime. I’m surprised that nobody spoke up in the entire year since this post has been “out there”. It’s been viewed by thousands and thousands and thousands of US citizens. I was obviously not aware that there was proper flag “etiquette” other than not burning the flag or causing damage to the flag. I am proud to be a free citizen of the USA because of the great people (including members of mine and my husbands) who have fought and who ARE fighting for what we have in this country. Within my heart, I never mean any harm to anyone, and that’s what matters the most to me. I regret the honesty in my earlier comment about my “2 little flag props being crumpled up” – but I choose to be honest and not lie to make myself look better, if that makes sense. I really didn’t believe when I took these photos that there would be an issue, but I realize that you cannot please everyone.

    While we’re on the subject… what do you do with your tiny flags after the 4th of July and other occasions where you might be inclined to purchase them? I suppose that using flag toothpicks in a cocktail isn’t OK either?

    Thanks for visiting my site!!

      I DO appreciate your honesty and I’m glad that you understand that a slight change to the picture creates the reaction you want, which is attention on the drink! That’s often why people DO say something – they care. No reaction can mean indifference.

      It’s also one of those things that once you “see it”, you can’t but see it. Perspective is one of those things we’re all learning one-by-one and it’s surprising when it comes and actually either changes you or just makes you think. It’s refreshing.

      Take your time on the change – health is more important. And just knowing that you understand, is what many people want to know.

      And as for all the stick flags? I guess I just keep reusing them. Stuck in cupcakes or in a pencil cup, displayed over again for anther holiday and if they get really worn, I pitch them. They end up being sentimental reminders of the event I got them for. But I make sure now that all the flags I buy are Made in the USA, buy good quality and then hold on to them for years. Guess that’s why they mean more later – I take great care in picking them!

      Rachael, thank you so much for being willing to change out the photos. Though I’m not exactly sure why you’re bringing up the 1st Amendment since it doesn’t apply in this case. You’re not the government.

      You asked what I do with tiny flags after the 4th. I simply don’t use the flag for any sort of decoration or garnish. I would rather not see flag toothpicks used, either. To me, the flag should be properly folded for display, placed near the graves of veterans, or flying properly on a flag pole. Other uses just irk me and flat out violations of the flag code really anger me.

      If you’re looking for a tie in with the 4th, I’d suggest using red, white, and blue cocktail napkins stacked in a fan pattern. I really like the large banner (for lack of a better term) used at http://www.mulberrycottage.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/large_julyc.jpg. Just ignore the flags in the flower pot, that’s kinda inappropriate as well.

      Thanks again for understanding why we felt compelled to comment and for being willing to correct your pictures.

    Thank you for understanding. And as for disposing of flags, no matter the size, let a Boy Scouts or Young Marines group take care of them. And if you have the time, watch the ceremony that properly disposes of the flags. It will give you an understanding and appreciation of the depth of meaning behind the flag.

      Do you have a ‘ceremony’ to throw away U.S. flags on fireworks, paper plates, umbrellas for drinks, straws and other decorations for OUR Independence holiday?? Grow up!! Not everything is a political statement!

      Reply
      • Swampwilllow June 22, 2013, 2:14 pm

        ‘Not everything is a political statement’. Perhaps not. But by ‘growing up’, you mean ignoring four generations of tradition and service in my family, I cannot ‘grow up’. Rather, I honor the sacrifice of those in the name of the flag who allow you to treat it as a mere decoration. It’s not a ‘political statement’ per se. It’s honoring the history and traditions of our country. You can certainly choose not to abide by it, and that is your ‘freedom of choice’. But because people serve in the military, you are able to still have that freedom. Enjoy your Independence Day. And maybe take a trip to a National Cemetery on the fourth of July and see the headstones of those who have ensured you have that freedom. And in answer to your question, you could have a ceremony of your own, and burn those items when you’re done. Or not. Use your ‘adulthood’ as you see fit. For the record, nothing wrong with red, white, and blue plates, napkins, or other such accouterments …flag ones, however, are not appropriate. But go ahead, sweetheart, and eat off the flag. I’m grown up enough to know it’s not proper etiquette.

          You’re hysterical!!! Thanks for the laughs. BTW, no one is defending my freedom for me, I never asked them to go to other countries, who’ve done nothing to hurt us and kill innocent people in my name. No matter how many uneducated people join the military and kill innocents for the monetary gain of our government officials who could care less about any of them or us, I’ll still be free. Until our government decides to show their true colors, that is. Then we will have to defend OURSELVES to them, like we should have been able to on 9/11.

            Mylisa: What do you propose that those ‘uneducated’ people do? The military often provides a step forward, enabling people to go to college with funding earned from being in the military. Or learning skills to use in the private market place. It’s more than the often-touted but not fact-supported just ‘joining the military and killing innocents’. (FWIW, the number of people killed by my military family members is zero!!) (And FWIW, if you combined the number of college degrees the four people in my family have that were in the military, it would total over seven, including three post-graduate degrees.) Please abstain from spouting talking points that are vague and inaccurate. I’m not hoping to change your mind. But please stop the petty-sounding aloofness (‘hysterical’). Not hysterical, just someone who has been there, done that, while you have sat at home and only spouted vague deprecations at the tv or on internet pages with those who don’t agree with you. Bless you, child, for at least entertaining a dialogue. It is much appreciated. May your own ideologies allow you to live a happy life, which my family members and I and thousands of other service members have helped ensure you have that opportunity. And Racheal, thank you for allowing us your blog space to share our freedom of speech. THIS is what makes America great.

            “Swamp Willow” I have no interest in reading what you wrote or continuing this absurd ‘conversation’. A napkin or a coaster is not a real, American flag. End of story.

    Seriously, I am. certain you all are taking this ENTIRELY way too far. I am very patriotic and have family past and present in the military. This is in no way offensive to me. It’s a damn picture for goodness sake. Do you people have nothing better to do than criticize others hard work? Get a life. If you don’t like what you see then move along. You’re opinion is no longer wanted nor needed. Thanks and make it a great day!!!

    I know this reply is quite late, but it find this quite amusing how an awesome alcoholic beverage idea becomes a battle of will between the patrons of our beautiful country. No wonder we are always at war…we can’t even maintain peace within our own walls. I believe that there are much larger issues which take precedent over a “Disrespectful flag coaster”. On a more positive side note: Great blog babe! My friends and I are trying your drink this Saturday. :) and Best wishes on getting better in health!
