This Handy Gadget Turns Your Favorite Cocktails Into Frozen Slushies Overnight
Turn your favorite cocktails into a batch of frozen slushies — no blender required.
There's nothing more refreshing than an ice-cold cocktail on a hot day. Fall may be on the horizon, but summer weather isn't going anywhere for a while. Whether you're lounging poolside (for a few more weeks!) or tailgating, the Rabbit Freezable Cocktail Maker ensures you have a batch of your favorite frozen cocktails ready to go — no blender needed! The process couldn't be simpler, too. All you have to do is mix your cocktail ingredients (margarita? frose? pina colada?), then freeze the carafe overnight. The next day, simply squeeze the carafe to create a soft, boozy slushie that's ready to pour and sip.
What You'll Get
Each set includes a silicone cocktail carafe, neoprene carafe sleeve, stir spoon, lid and recipe booklet with six tasty recipes.
- Silicone Carafe: This easy-to-wash container includes measurements in mL and ounces for easy measuring.
- Neoprene Sleeve: The sleeve is designed to keep hands warm and help your grip while you squeeze the carafe.
- Stir Spoon: The integrated spoon is perfect for stirring and breaking up frozen cocktails.
- Lid: The lid keeps your frozen concoction protected from freezer smells.
How It Works
Step 1: Remove the lid and fill the silicone carafe with your cocktail ingredients.
Step 2: Cover with the lid, and place in the freezer overnight. (Be sure to remove the neoprene sleeve before freezing.)
Step 3a: The next day, remove the carafe from the freezer and wrap it with the neoprene sleeve. Squeeze in the sides of the carafe with your hands until the desired consistency is reached.
Step 3b: You can also use the stir spoon for extra mixing.
Step 4: Pour the finished frozen cocktails into glasses.
To clean the cocktail maker, simply pop the carafe and its accessories onto the top rack of your dishwasher, and use a damp cloth to wipe down the neoprene sleeve.
Our Top Tested Tips
We tested this baby and have a few handy tips to make sure you get the absolute best frozen drink. Once you remove the carafe from the freezer, let it hang out on your kitchen counter for a few minutes before squeezing. We discovered giving it a little thawing time creates the best consistency in the end. (This works especially well if you're toting your concoction somewhere, like the pool or beach.) After a short period of rest, use the included stir spoon to crush the frozen contents along with bouts of squeezing. Although the recipes say four-to-six servings, we got an average of four servings per batch when using a standard wine glass.
Make Strawberry Frose
- 1 bottle of rose
- 2 cups of fresh or frozen strawberries
- 2 ounces of simple syrup

Puree the strawberries and place 1 cup of the puree into the carafe. Mix using the stir spoon. Add the simple syrup and orange liqueur, and mix again. Pour in the rose. Cover the cocktail maker with the lid, and place in the freezer overnight. The next day, squeeze the carafe with your hands until the desired consistency is reached. Use the stir spoon for additional mixing. Pour the frozen cocktails into glasses, then garnish and enjoy.
