Two Methods:Mixing the DrinkFreezing the Adult Juice Bags

Juice bags aren't just for the kids! Adults too can enjoy these summer treats, and if wished, a little alcoholic beverage can be added to spice things up! Although a few liquor companies have started making adult-oriented alcohol-infused juice bags, they're just too easy to make at home to throw away money like that!

Ingredients

Purchase enough ingredients to fill several large plastic bags.

  • Alcohol of choice
  • A mixer
  • Any preferred garnishes (i.e. mint leaves or lemon).

Method 1
Mixing the Drink

    1
    Grab a large pitcher and gather together the necessary ingredients. Keep everything in one place so you can quickly pull the drink together.

    2
    Determine how many drink bags you want to create. Keep in mind you won’t be filling the bags to the tip top with your drink, so ration out your beverage supply so it meets your criteria.

    3
    Create or blend the drink. Follow your favorite drink recipe. Don’t forget to double or triple the recipe if you're making more of your beverage than what is called for in the recipe.
    • You can make a blended smoothie this way too––just slightly reduce the amount of ice so that the drink doesn’t get too watered down.

    Cut enough garnish for each bag. For example, if you're making 'Lemon Tini's', don't forget to add a nice wedge of lemon to each bag.

Method 2
Freezing the Adult Juice Bags

    1
    Open one freezer bag and hold in place. Make sure that the bottom of the bag is supported on a flat surface so it can easily receive the beverage without spilling over.

    Pour the drink slowly into the bag. Fill each bag two-thirds to three quarters of the way up.
    • Don’t overfill! The freezing process will likely expand your drink, which can cause an overfilled bag to burst and leave an unappetizing icy lump in your freezer.

    Transfer some of the relevant garnish to each bag, then seal the bag. Make sure you run your finger over the seal several times to ensure no holes exist in the top.
    • One way to test the bag is to carefully dangle it upside down in the sink.

    Place the bag in the freezer. Lay the bag flat on a shelf in the freezer so it doesn’t freeze into an odd shape.
    • Repeat for each bag you're preparing.

    Allow the juice bags to freeze for up to 24 hours before drinking. Or, just keep a supply on hand for when company calls, or for beach days.

    Open a small area in the resealable bag when you're ready to drink and just add your straw. You may need to wait a few minutes before the frozen cocktail will break down enough to admit the straw; keep pushing until there is some give.

    Finished. Lie back and enjoy your adult juice bag!

Tips

  • Visit a party store for colorful or festive bags to use in place of plain old clear plastic.
  • Rub the frozen bag between your hands to accelerate the thawing process.

Things You'll Need

  • Long straws; they must be long enough to not sink to the bottom of your bag so that you aren’t constantly fishing for it
