Tips for making your Cocktails
How to make your Kick Ice Cocktail
Cut the top off the bag on the cut line just above the zip seal. Open the zip seal and add 1.3 litres of hot water to the kick ice cocktail mix - to the bottom (green) fill line as line as marked on the bag.
Add 350ml (about half a 700ml bottle) of white rum (for pina colada and strawberry daiquiri) or tequila (for the margarita) - to the top fill line marked on the bag.
Reseal the zip lock on the bag and shake the mix for about a minute until you can see that all the mix is dissolved.
Place the bag in your freezer for 6 to 8 hours (or overnight) until frozen.
Remove the bag, let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes, squeeze the bag all over to loosen the mix, then scoop it out of the bag into your glass. Enjoy!
How long do they take to freeze?
It usually takes 6 to 8 hours (depending on your freezer quality, how much is in the freezer etc). The beauty of them is you can do them well ahead of time so they are ready whenever you feel the urge for a cocktail. If you are having a party it is best to do them a day or two before, that way they are frozen ready to go and you have less to do on the day of the party!
How long will they last in the freezer?
They can be kept for up to 6 months in the freezer.
Do you have to use them all at once?
No, one of the things that makes them so great is that you can serve out what you want then reseal them and put them back in the freezer to be used whenever you feel like a cocktail - for up to 6 months.
Where can I buy Kick Ice Cocktails?
We sell them on-line and at several shows throughout the year (all of which are posted on our website and facebook one month beforehand) and if you subscribe to our contact list, you will be notified by email of our upcoming sales events.
How many drinks does it make?
Each bag makes at least 10 drinks
How much alcohol is in each drink?
If you make it exactly according to our directions on the bag there are 10 standard drinks per bag. However if you add more or less alcohol / or water than according to our instructions this will vary.
Can I add more alcohol to the mix?
No - if you add more than the recommended amount of alcohol the mix will not freeze. If you want to use more alcohol you must make the bag up as per our instructions, freeze it and then when serving the cocktail pour some more alcohol over the top before you drink it.
Can I use less alcohol to make up the mix?
Yes you can and they still taste fantastic - you really can't tell the difference. If you add less alcohol however you must make up the difference by adding extra water of the equivalent amount. Please be aware, you will need to stand the bag out of the freezer for 10-15 minutes before serving to give the mix time to defrost a little.
Can I make a non alcoholic version of the cocktails?
Yes you can. There are 2 ways to do this;
1. You may make up the cocktails in the bag and only add water to the very top line (no alcohol). Freeze the bag for 6 to 8 hours. It will freeze quite solid (it is the alcohol that stops the mix freezing solid) - so you will need to sit the bag out of the freezer for 15 to 20 minutes before serving. Then give the bag a bash around on the kitchen bench to mush up the ice and it is ready to serve.
2. You may place about half of the mix in a blender, add about 500ml of water and 2 cups of ice - blend and serve.
How long does it take to deliver Kick Ice Cocktails?
Orders to Sydney metropolitan take 1 business day, Deliveries to NSW regional areas can take up to 3 business days, and interstate orders 3 to 4 business days.
Do I have to use the alcohol that is recommended on the bag?
(ie white rum for the pina colada and strawberry daiquiri and tequila for the margarita).
No - the alcohol you use is up to you - but it should be a clear alcohol so the taste doesn’t overpower the fruit flavours. Many people choose to use vodka as an alternative in all 3 cocktails.
