Frozen drinks - blender vs freezer

michaeljc70 | Jun 24, 2013 11:52 AM

When having a crowd over in the summer, I find it hard to keep up with blending frozen drinks. I want to make them in advance. My question is do the drink come out better if I blend them in advance and dump them in a container in the freezer than if I just mix them and freeze them in a container not using ice/blender?

Typically, I use ice, juice concentrate, vodka and sometimes a liqueur and blend it. If I did the freezer technique, it would just be juice, vodka and liqueur. I typically use enough alcohol that freezing solid wouldn't happen.

I am interested if there is a difference in texture between the 2 methods.
