These beautiful-looking, grown-up drinks get easy, delicious tang from lots of lemonade. Just keep in mind that you have to freeze the lemonade cubes until they're solid, which will take several hours. But then all you have to do is blend the ice cubes, lemonade, lemon-lime soda, vodka, and fresh lemon juice in a blender until your desired slushy consistency forms. Garnish with fresh raspberries and mint leaves, and your drink is ready to go. We do think taking the step of making your own ice cubes really puts these adult slushies over the top flavor-wise, but if you're pressed for time, you can use regular ice cubes instead.
