fixation friday: frozen beverages


Today's Fixation Friday is going to be short and sweet. A few weeks ago Mike and I took our first Kayak run of the season. It was a warm and comfortable day on the creek and I'm glad I planned my beverages accordingly. The night before we stopped at Wally World to get our groceries and drinks for the weekend. Mike opted for his bargain favorite Natural Light and I snatched up my tried and true favorite beer, Mich Ultra. We started getting closer to the counter when I remembered that I wanted to try some of  Dailys Ready To Drink Pouch Frozen Drinks!

I quickly placed my case of beer down in a display that was clearly for soda and not for beer. I do this a lot. If you ever come to our local Walmart and find say, some pajama bottoms in the frozen food section, chances are I changed my mind and left them there and bought some hot pockets instead. Rude, yes, but it's me and I live up to my mistakes so there you go. After stashing the beer in the wrong section I started to browse the rack of Pre-made drink pouches by the checkout. There were so many flavors I didn't know where to start so I got one of each, and maybe two of the Lemonade flavor. Mike decided he'd get one as well.

Once home I read the directions on the back, freeze for 8 hours and then enjoy! Easy enough. I tossed all the pouches into the freezer and waited until morning. 

We loaded up the kayaks... and by We I mean Mike and his man power loaded up the jeep with the kayaks, paddles, life vests and other odds n' ends and I did my Saturday workout, showered and got ready for the creek. Make-up is optional, but I chose to wear a little bit. I'm a girl with dark circles under here eyes after all. After my primping I packed my cooler with the frozen pouches that were almost solid ice blocks at that point.  We waited for Mike's little bro P and then headed out to pick up his kayak and some ice for our coolers. I tell you all this because before getting these puppies on ice, they stayed fairly solid for a good 30 minutes without melting. Good to know if your cooler runs warm!

Once at the drop off point we got our gear ready for a float. I waited to be down the creek a ways before trying one of my frozen beverages. I think I went with the Peach first - it was amazing!!! I believe these are mostly just frozen wine coolers, no more alcohol content then say a beer and probably a shizz ton of calories so I'd watch drinking these if you're on a mission to lose weight, which I am. I don't plan on purchasing these very often.  That being said I like to call them ADULT CAPRI SUNS! You open it just a slit, slide a long straw in and it's like grade school with a kick!

My favorite flavors are a toss up between Peach and this gem.... LEMONADE!!! Yes I sipped Lemonade while riding in Lemon, my kayak.

If you're looking for a quick and easy, as well as refreshing drink for the spring and summer nights, look no further. It's not a premium mixed drink but it's cheap, fun and tasty!!!

I hope you all have a great weekend! I am planning a kayak float again this weekend but I will probably stick to sipping on some water and beer!

HAPPY WEEKEND!

*I haven't been compensated to talk fluffy things about this product I just thought I would spread the love with all of you!!!

It's possible Natalie. I was shocked to find them at Walmart for sure!

Mike said...

The lemonade ones are really better than they have any right to be.

Kathryn said...

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! That is EXACTLY what I thought when I saw the photos of those little drink packets- Capri Suns! I totally adored them as a kid, and I'm sure I would adore them even more with a little booze in 'em! I'll have to try these soon :)

I live in a terrible state where alcohol laws suck. :( You can only buy beer at Wal Mart, gas stations, etc. Only beer, not even wine coolers. Just beer.

So..when I was in San Diego for the Superbowl and saw these puppies I shrieked in delight and lived off them for the weekend. Amazing yummy delightful lil guys.

I've seen this stuff at Walmart!! Always looks great, but I can't get too tipsy anymore with a baby to take care of. So my frozen bev of choice are sonic slushes. OMG. I could drink 5 per day, I'm not kidding.

StarFish said...

I've never seen those in any local stores here... But they look yummy and way too EASY! lol...

I LOL'd for real when you talked about changing your mind about stuff in your cart and randomly placing it in whatever aisle you happen to be in... thats SO me! Although if its a food item that is refridgerated/frozen, I do try to at least get it back in a cold or frozen place.. lol

Wow! First time to see a drink with alcohol on it in a pouch. It looks cool, and so handy.

*LOVE* the package design... "Alcohol is in it! Weeeeeeeee!"

Sounds like a pretty kickass way to spend the weekend! Thanks for the tip; definitely going to be on the lookout for these....

Candice said...

YUM! I can't wait to have one of these.

My friend has a company that produces basically alcoholic Otter Pops. He debuted them at our high school reunion pre-party and they now sell in stores, but not nationally yet. They are amazing!

Anything that says, "Alcohol is in it!" in nice bold letters is a frickin win in my book. Thanks for sharing!
