This is my idea of a slushy! A refreshing lemon-enhanced drink, best when frozen to a slush, great in the summertime on the porch! Originally from a June 1984 issue of Bon Apetit magazine. This must be started 2 days (48 hours) before serving. Standing time and freezing time are not included in prep time.
