Old family favorite (for grownups only) every holiday. Would be fabulous in the summertime too. A very sweet drink...not boozy-tasting. Best if frozen overnight - cook time represents time in the freezer. Makes alot.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • Bring to boil

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups water
  • Take off heat and pour into large container Add

  • 7 cups water
  • 1 (12 ounce) can frozen orange juice
  • 1 (12 ounce) can frozen lemonade
  • 1 (750 ml) bottle rum or 1 (750 ml) bottle brandy (apricot, peach, blackberry)


  1. Prepare in large tuperware type container with lid that will fit in your freezer.
  2. Stir well, put the lid on and freeze mixture (overnight is best).
  3. You will need to give it a stir every few hours.
  4. When slushy, serve in a tall glass with half Squirt/Fresca (grapefruit flavored pop) or 7up/Sprite.
  5. Ratio 1/2 slush and 1/2 pop.
  6. Garnish with a cherry.
  7. NOTE: I have never made this with RUM.
  8. I have always made it with Brandy.
  9. The apricot and peach are the prettiest drinks-- the blackberry turned out the color of icy ditch water.
  10. We drank it anyway!
