These frozen vodka drinks are easy to make, perfect for the summertime, and beyond delicious! From vodka-spiked frosé to Moscow Mules slushies, these frosty cocktails are sure to become your new summer obsession.
Who needs frozen margaritas and pina coladas when you have these super fun and tasty frozen vodka drinks!?
Just kidding, there’s enough room in our hearts for ALL the frozen cocktails, but these have me especially excited because they’re easy to make and vodka is my favorite spirit for mixed drinks!
Vodka is partially my favorite spirit because it’s so versatile and can blend in with a huge range of flavors. That means you can be as creative or as simple as you want depending on your mood.
These frozen vodka cocktails are perfect for:
- The beach
- Poolside sippin’
- Summer holidays & birthdays
- Whenever you need a tasty drink to cool you down!
They vary from super unique to really simple, so I’m confident everyone can find a perfect cocktail for any occasion or budget 🙂
Best Type of Vodka for Frozen Cocktails
Ultimately, any vodka will work fine in a frozen cocktail since the taste will be partially masked by the coldness of the drink (the colder the drink, the harder it is to taste the flavors) as well as the other ingredients.
So it all comes down to your price point, preference, and the recipe.
That said, if you’re on a budget, you can’t go wrong with Svedka. It runs about $12-$16 for 750ml and is a great vodka for the price.
If you can spend a few more dollars though, nothing can match Tito’s Handmade Vodka in terms of quality and price. It’s only $16-$23 for a 750ml bottle and it’s worth every penny.
So with all that said, let’s check out these deliciously refreshing frozen vodka drinks!

22 Best Frozen Vodka Drinks For The Summer
Triple Berry Chamomile Frosé
To start us off, we have a super creative and tasty frosé (aka frozen rosé) recipe! If you've never had frosé with vodka, then you've been doing it wrong.
This recipe calls for frosé mix, rosé, berry shrub, brewed chamomile tea, and vodka. So it has a more complex flavor profile than your typical frosé while still being just as boozy and delicious.
4 Ingredient Frosé
If you're looking for a simple, classic frosé recipe that uses vodka, look no further than this one right here! The only four ingredients you need are rosé, citrus vodka, simple syrup, and frozen strawberries.
So it's zero hassle to whip up and is sure to be a cocktail everyone will love. (Seriously, I've never met anyone who doesn't love a classic frosé!)
Sex on the Beach Slushies
Here's a quintessential vodka beach cocktail made even better since it's frozen! A Sex on the Beach is made with vodka, peach schnapps, orange juice and cranberry juice.
To make it a slushy, this recipe adds frozen peaches to the mix. The end result is a gorgeous, frozen layered cocktail that looks just like a sunset.
Frozen Strawberry Lemonade Vodka Slush
Strawberry lemonade is a must during the summer, and it's only improved with the addition of vodka! This recipe also couldn't be easier. The only ingredients you need are strawberries, lemonade, vodka, and ice.
Blend them all together and you have an adult version of strawberry lemonade that's great for parties since it's so easy to make.
Frozen Moscow Mules
This is another super simple and classic cocktail that is so delicious when served frozen! For this recipe you just need ginger beer, vodka, and lime juice.
Freeze the ginger beer in an ice cube tray, then blend all the ingredients together and enjoy.
Frozen Blueberry Moscow Mules
The only way to make a frozen Moscow Mule even tastier is to add in blueberry syrup!
The syrup will make the drink a little sweeter and fruitier. It also gives it a gorgeous almost-too-pretty-to-drink magenta color.
Frozen Strawberry Cosmos
A cosmo is typically made with cranberry juice, vodka, triple sec, and lime juice. This fun recipe uses all of the above ingredients but also adds frozen strawberries and ice to give it a frozen texture.
Tart, fruity, and totally delish!
Frozen Cherry Cosmos
Here's another take on a cosmo that uses cherry instead of strawberry! It specifically adds in tart cherry juice, so this recipe will be more on the tart/sour side instead of the sweet side of the spectrum.
It's also a beautiful red color that looks so fun in a glass garnished with fresh cherries!
The Best Frozen Lemon Drop Martini
A lemon drop is usually served as a shot made with lemon juice, vodka, and sugar. It can also be served as a martini though, and this clever recipe takes it to the next level by turning it all into a tasty slushy.
It also only requires 4 ingredients: lemon vodka, lemon juice, sugar, and ice. It's sour, a little sweet, and dangerously drinkable.
Here's another vodka cocktail that's perfectly balanced between sour and sweet! The Greyhound, which is a cocktail made with just grapefruit juice and vodka, proves that a drink doesn't need to be complicated to be delicious.
This riff on a greyhound maintains the simplicity of the original, but adds in a little simple syrup, a sugar rim, and blends everything with ice to give it the slushy texture we all crave when it's hot outside!
Frozen Sea Breeze Slush
You don't even need a blender to make this gorgeous cocktail, so clean up is a *ahem* breeze...
All you need to make it is vodka, frozen grapefruit concentrate, frozen cranberry concentrate, sugar, and lemon lime soda for serving.
This one is great if you need a big batch cocktail for a crowd that whips up in minutes and everyone will love!
Vodka Sunrise Slushy
If you enjoy a good tequila sunrise (a cocktail made with grenadine, orange juice, and tequila), you're guaranteed to love it just as much with vodka!
It calls for UV Sangria Vodka (but you can use plain vodka if you can't find UV), orange juice, grenadine, and finely crushed ice. So it's a super easy recipe that's perfect for brunch and way more fun than a mimosa.
Frozen Espresso Martini
Nothing can perk you up quite like an espresso martini, especially if it's nice and icy. This is a pretty standard espresso martini recipe that's made with espresso, vodka, Kahlúa, sugar, and ice.
Put it all in a blender and you're done! This is another one that's great for brunch if you don't want a fruity/sweet cocktail and need your morning coffee.
Frozen Pineapple Mango Vodka Slush
It doesn't get much more tropical than this wonderfully sunny cocktail! Ingredients are vodka, mango, pineapple, simple syrup, and ice.
Blend everything together and you basically have summertime in a glass! Perfect for the beach or any party that calls for a tiki drink.
Watermelon Vodka Slushies
This cocktail checks all the boxes: it's super easy, uses the all-time best summer fruit, and looks gorgeous in a glass! Watermelon is my favorite fruit to use in frozen cocktails since it slushifies so well due to the high water content.
You make it by freezing watermelon cubes, then blending them with vodka, lime juice, simple syrup, and ice. Throw in some mint too to make it even more refreshing!
Spiked Frozen Arnold Palmer
An Arnold Palmer is a drink made with half lemonade and half iced tea that people discovered early on tastes great with the addition of vodka! This recipe uses lemon and sweet tea vodka along with sweet tea and lemonade.
It's so refreshing during the summertime and you definitely don't have to be a fan of golf to be a fan of this tasty drink!
Cucumber Melon Cocktail Slushie
It's hard to think of a more summery combination than cucumber and melon! This gorgeous cocktail looks almost like a healthy smoothie and is filled with vitamin C, but it'll also give you a nice buzz.
It uses fresh melon, cucumber, vodka, lime, and honey. Guaranteed to cool you down on a hot afternoon!
Ginger Peach Vodka Slush
This recipe is so simple but packs in a ton of flavor! You only need 4 ingredients: frozen peaches, ginger ale, vodka, and ice.
Peach and ginger is a great combination, and I like that this recipe uses ginger ale instead of a more powerful ginger flavor so the fruitiness of the peach can shine through as the star of the cocktail.
Raspberry Orange Vodka Slushy
This drink gets its gorgeous orangey-red color from -- you guessed it! -- raspberries and orange juice. From there, you just need vodka, ice, and simple syrup to taste.
For me, it would be sweet enough without the simple syrup, but you do you! Either way, it'll be fruity, tart, and delicious.
Vodka Tonic Slush
A frozen vodka tonic sounds a little bit strange, but hear me out: it is SO tasty. The secret is adding enough sugar so that it has a light sweetness to it while still tasting like a super refreshing vodka tonic.
This is a great drink to surprise friends with since it's such a fun, unexpected riff on a classic cocktail!
Frozen Bloody Mary
This was another recipe I was skeptical about until I tried it. Even Martha Stewart has a frozen Bloody Mary recipe though, so you know it's legit.
Basically, the only difference between a frozen and a normal Bloody Mary is that you freeze ripe tomatoes and blend all the ingredients together. Use peak summer tomatoes and I promise it'll be the most refreshing Bloody Mary you've ever had!
Rhubarb Lemonade Slush
In my opinion, rhubarb is an underrated cocktail ingredient. It's tangy, slightly fruity, and pairs great with a wide range of mixers and spirits.
This recipe combines rhubarb with pink lemonade concentrate for a cocktail that's tart, citrusy, and pretty in pink!
Which of these frozen vodka drinks are you excited to try this weekend?? It’s been in the high 90s so we’ll see if I can even make it to the weekend 😂
Wishing you all a fun and safe summer with ALL the frozen cocktails!
