For a crowd, but can be frozen in ziplock bags for smaller consumption or simply halved. Cook time is freeze time.

Oh my...I was just telling my husband that I wish I could find a recipe for Long Island Slushes. I love having these slush drinks on hand for summer guests. I'm going to make these this weekend! I'll rate these when we taste, but I'm sure they will be GREAT! Thank you for posting! Update: This was really good. I didn't think it tasted quite like the LIT that I remembered, but still very good. Thanks for a great summer drink recipe!
