White Claw Slushie Ingredients
You will need:
- 1 (12-ounce) can of Raspberry White Claw
- 1 (2-ounce) shot of Vodka
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice (about ½ a lemon)
- 2 cups ice cubes
- 2 cups (1 pint) frozen raspberries
Substitutions and Additions
White Claw Hard Seltzer: You can use any combination of your favorite White Claw flavor and frozen fruit that you prefer. Great flavor combinations include:
- Black Cherry White Claw with frozen tart cherries and lime juice
- Ruby Grapefruit White Claw or Tangerine White Claw with frozen tropical fruit blend or frozen pineapple and grapefruit juice
- Mango White Claw with frozen mango and strawberries and lemon juice
- Lemon White Claw with frozen strawberries and lemon juice
Vodka: If you do not want to add the additional vodka into your slushies, they will still taste delicious. Popular variations of the slushie use vodka, but you can also substitute light rum, tequila or other favorite liquor if you are not a fan of vodka, and it will be equally delicious.
Frozen Fruit: If you can not find your favorite fruit in the freezer section, you can freeze your own fresh fruit. Try mango, berries, peach or pineapple for great choices that freeze well. Peel and cut fruit into 1-inch pieces, place on a parchment-lined baking tray and place into your freezer until frozen (about 2-3 hours). If you are freezing fresh berries, just be sure to rinse them in cold water, then pat them dry very well and follow the same instructions. The frozen fruit will keep in a freezer-safe bag for up to 2 months in your freezer.
How to Make This White Claw Slushie Recipe
STEP ONE: In the container of a blender, pour in your can of White Claw. Allow the White Claw to sit for 2 to 3 minutes to get a little flat (letting most of the bubbles dissipate).
STEP TWO: Once the bubbles go pretty flat, add the vodka, sugar, lemon juice, ice, and frozen raspberries.
STEP THREE: Blend on high (or smoothie setting if your blender has one) until smooth and no lumps of ice or frozen fruit remain.
PRO TIP: If you don’t think your slushie is thick enough, you can add more fruit to thicken it up.
STEP FOUR: Pour into a 2 cup glass and enjoy!
PRO TIP: If you are whipping these up for company (or just for yourself), you could fancy up your glass by adding salt or sugar around the rim.
PRO TIP: A mason jar would be a cute glass to enjoy your drink from. Add a pretty straw and you will have a fancy alcoholic beverage to sip.
How To Serve
Fun cocktails are always a hit at a party, and this viral sensation would be a fun summer drink to add to your bartending menu. They are best served fresh, so make sure you have all the ingredients on hand, and you can whip up a drink on demand.

IN THE FRIDGE: You can store any extra slushie in a lidded glass container, in the refrigerator, for 1 to 2 hours. Make sure to mix it well again before serving.

This easy recipe calls for raspberry White Claw, but you can pick your favorite hard seltzer flavors for this drink. Any flavor choice would be a great option for this recipe.
You could use another brand of hard seltzer in this recipe if you can’t get the white claw brand. Have a look at your local store and pick one that you like the best.
These slushies are best served fresh. Since the White Claw is carbonated, it will lose its fizz pretty quickly, so we don’t recommend making it ahead of time.
