Skinny Piña Colada
It's all the flavors of the vacation go-to in a lighter form. There's no added sugar here, just light coconut milk, pineapple juice, and fresh pineapple. Malibu rum gives a more intense coconut flavor but it would also be delicious as a virgin drink.

Wisconsin Brandy Slush
This drink is a midwestern classic; it involves a little more prep time, but we promise the first sip will be well worth the effort. First, boil water, then add the sugar and green tea bags. Mix the sweet tea with orange and lime concentrate and brandy. Freeze, stirring periodically to combine the flavors. When ready to serve, scoop some slushy into a glass and pour in lemon lime soda or fizzy flavored water. Want a different orange-flavored alcoholic beverage?
