Yes, the different flavors of drink you can create with these mix-ins are unlimited.
For a touch of creative flair experiment with gourmet ingredients like ginger beer, peach schnapps, or maple syrup. Remember, the key is to balance out your flavors. Not too sweet, not too strong—just the perfect mix to create your to-be favorite drink.
The cocktail tools are crucial as well. Also, invest in a freezer-safe container. Not just for storing your slushies and vodka, but for freezing the fresh berries you may like to add to your drinks.
