Slushed Slushy Slush

"This is a great party drink recipe. You need to make it at least a day in advance. I like to leave a container of this mix in my freezer during the hot summer months. Whenever friends pop by (or if you've had a hard day!); it's easy to scoop out into glasses, add 7up or gingerale and you have a refreshing drink! I'm guessing at the serving amount, I just know that it makes A LOT!"

    This reminds me of a punch you'd serve at a bridal shower or baby shower. Its so sweet you can't even taste the vodka. Perfect slushy texture. I might not add as much ginger ale next time. I think it makes it a bit too sweet....however, this is "the" perfect summertime'll cool you off, and is absolutely no work once you put it in the freezer. Thanks for sharing this refreshing recipe. Made for TYM tag.

    I use this recipe for the holidays. I add a small jar of maraschino cherrys with juice. Makes a pretty pink hue and gives it a nice flavor

    Well, I suppose you could say that I totally messed up this recipe, 'CAUSE I DID NOT MAKE IT WITH THE VODKA! However, it is a great tasting drink, nevertheless, & well worth keeping around not taking up room in the refrigerator! Absolutely GREAT, & thanks for sharing!

Hello! I have a wonderful husband and two fantastic kids. I love to read, have fun with family and friends, stay active with: running; soccer; golf; biking; hiking; and gardening. I love to travel. I'm looking forward to more international travel someday. Cooking has become a passion for me. I love to read cookbooks, watch the Food Network, and try new recipes. I have way too many cookbooks! A few of my favorites are: Barefoot Contessa (any - but especially 'Family Style'),Rachael Ray 30-Minute Meals 2, Roasting by Barbara Kafka, Beyond Parsley & The Black Dog Summer on the Vineyard Cookbook. I try to carefully choose recipes that I think my family will enjoy, which is why most of my ratings are 3-5 stars. Happy cooking!
