Slush Recipe

Hi there!

Okay, I had blogged earlier that
if I had enough people asking,
I would post the "Slush" recipe.

Okaaaaaay..... only ONE person asked,
so, I figured that I'd do it, anyhow!


Boil 15 minutes and cool:
2 cups of water
1 cup of white sugar

1 (big) can of non-sweetened Orange Juice
1 (big) can of non-sweetened Pineapple Juice
26 oz of Gin
juice of 2 or 3 lemons - remove seeds, of course.

Put in freezer right away.

To Serve:
1/2 glass of slush with 1/2 glass of Seven-Up
Slice of lemon and orange on the side of the glass. Add a cherry and a drinking straw.


Now, since we don't have a "deep-freeze" - we only have a small one. You know? The kind that's at the top of your "fridge"?

Soooooo, this recipe was actually doubled, and you're supposed to add a 40 oz of gin. I decided to divide the recipe in 1/2, which I've posted. Also, here's another hint. We took a big glass, put in a sandwich ziplock, which we had previously opened up and started filling up our zip lock bags with the "slush".

Closed the bags and put them in the freezer. That way, whenever I want a "Slushie", I just grab a bag and I KNOW it's the perfect quantity for my big glasses.

Normally, you'd put your "Slushie" mixture in a big plastic container and pull it out and dig out what you need, for your drink. Kinda like getting ice cream, out.

Hope this helps.... And don't forget -

These Slushies are refreshing, tasty and if you have too many, can turn your legs into rubber! LOL

Have a great weekend!

YUMMY! I think we'll be making some of these up today!

AND I like the idea of making them up ahead of time ... kinda reminds me of being a "Girl Scout! You know, ALWAYS PREPARED!!
