  1. This is such a great recipe that we decided to add it to our Navy wives' club cookbook. We used to freeze the fruit mixture into rings, put the rings into a punch bowl and then pour the ginger ale over the top before serving. Very attractive, especially if you decorate the rings with whole strawberries or blueberries.
  2. This was a hit at a party we had yesterday. I added an 85 g packet of strawberry jello for color. It was a delightful drink for these hot days. I halved the quantity of your recipe for a smaller crowd. It made 2 litres of slush mixture. Didn't have any oranges, so I left it out and used just 1.5 lemons for the half recipe. However I still used 6 bananas, as we prefer a stronger taste of banana. thanks for sharing
  3. Very refreshing on the hot summer days. I halved the recipe with no problem. Thank you for a great slush!
  4. I love anything banana flavored but thought the pineapple taste was definately more prevelant in this recipe. I served it at a bunco party and the women loved it. They also appreciated the fact that it was left virgin and they could add their choice of mixers. Based on my party, I would say the number of servings is much closer to 50 than 100 unless the servings were in tiny punch cups. I would make this again!
  5. Let the slush sit for a couple minutes before serving. The slush will become very thick and smooth.
