"My mom always kept this yummy punch onhand growing up in the 70s. My two brothers, who were teenage eating machines and rowed on the crew team in high school, would usually burn through 5 slushy gallons in a couple of days...just between the two of them!"

    I made this for the Memorial Day Weekend. Everyone liked it so that alone makes it a 5 star recipe. The drink tasted very good. I used raspberry instead of strawberry koolaide. It really does stay slushy all day long in the refrigerator. Very easy to make. Thanks Mercy. Bullwinkle.
