TRANSCRIPT Let's face it; most people buy ice cream makers because they really honestly think they're going to make ice cream all the time. But you know what? You can use them to make other things besides ice cream, like cold, slushy summer cocktails. Grab a two quart pitcher. Pour in three cups of cold water. One can of cream of coconut, a cup of light rum, a quarter cup of Marisquino Liquor and two tablespoons of fresh lime juice. Mix it all together and let it chill in the fridge at least three hours. When you're ready to make the cocktail, just pour it in the ice cream maker and in twenty minutes you'll have a cold, refreshing and slushy cocktail.
