From Los Angeles to Kansas City to Chicago to New York City, bars are catching on to the new frozen cocktails trend—think tipsy gas station slushy served in a fancy chilled glass and garnished with fresh herbs. They’re so popular that New Yorkers can have Phrosties—rainbow-striped spiked slushies—delivered to their doors after following the company on Instagram.

No need to live in a major city (or give some random person your address so they can bring you psychedelic drinks) to enjoy this trend. With some ice and a blender or margarita machine, you can whip up icy alcoholic beverages at home featuring summer’s ripest fruits and herbs. It doesn’t get much more fun for backyard entertaining.
