Frozen Rum n' Coke?

We were at Treasure Island hotel/casino in LV this past week and they were serving a "frozen" rum n' coke. Sort of a rum n' coke daquiri for lack of a better description.

We have a Margaritaville frozen drink shaver/blender, but I'm pretty sure that putting a carbonated beverage (coke) in it will result in a mess. These things were pretty tasty - reminded me of the Coke flavored "icees" we got as kids.

Any thoughts on how to make this work at home? It occured to me to buy a bottle of coke, open it and let it go flat, but theres got to be a better way.

Sooo-I thought I'd check with the wisest folks I know-you guys/gals!!

Any ideas???

Mix up a rum and coke and put it in the freezer. The alcohol will keep the coke from solidifying and will turn it into slush.

I would think the blender would make the coke go flat though.

That was my first thought, but don't you think that soda (coke) in a blender would make it "fizz up" like when you shake a bottle before opening it?

I don't think it would fizz up. I think it would just go flat.

Same principle as those buckets of margarita mix you buy at the store. You just throw it in the freezer for your party, and when ready just take it out and serve. The alcohol keeps it from freezing completely.
