Remember when you were a kid, and you'd think to yourself that when you're finally an adult, you'd be able to do whatever you wanted. You could stay up late, watch R-rated movies, and eat and drink all those sweet things that your parents occasionally treated you to...
When you actually become an adult, it's easy to forget about these little things, and put them aside for more practical purchases - but sometimes you just have to get yourself a little present.
Now that it's summer, there's no better time to indulge your slushie craving with your very own Slush Puppie Machine - treating yourself to a couple of boozy ice concoctions on a hot day.
Online retailer Firebox are selling these machines (around the same size as your average countertop blender) for $50.99. All you need is some ice, salt and a liquid (whether that's juice, syrup or spirits) to create a delicious slushie.
If you wanted to splash out on something even better suited to create blended icy drinks, you can grab a Margaritaville Bahamas Frozen Concoction Maker with No-Brainer Mixer from Amazon.
This blender shaves and blends ice to create the best consistency for pitchers of frozen margaritas and the like - at a pricier $159.99. However, if you're looking to keep it simple - the Slush Puppie route may be the way to go.
