Slushy Cherry Old Fashioned Cocktail

The Old Fashioned is a beautiful thing. At its best, it’s a careful balance of whiskey, sugar, and bitters, with a little dilution from water, often in the form of melting ice. Here, the classic goes pool-friendly, with a slushy blender version that relies on lots of ice, as well as fresh cherries to lend a little brightness and color. See our other frozen drink recipes for more refreshing options. Or try boozy ice pops for another delicious take.
