Weekend Cocktails - Vodka Slush

Vodka Slush, a refreshing adult drink made from a mixture of frozen lemonade, orange juice and limeade and vodka, or rum if you like. After freezing the mixture is combined with 7-up or Sprite to make a slush.

Vodka Slush

This one's for you Deb, because and it was you and Trish that inspired me to seek out this slushy drink after having a taste of Trish's freezer slush many, many years ago! (Hey, and send me your recipe would ya?)


This will certainly help keep you and your other over-21 friends cooled off during all the festivities, while the kids sip on their koolaide, fruit drinks and lemonade. Like a grown up slushie really.


Have a safe and fun holiday y'all, and remember, drink responsibly and don't drink and drive!

Prep time: 10 min |Inactive time: 24 hours | Yield: About 8 to 10 servings

Ingredients
  • 1 (12 ounce) can of frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
  • 1 (6 ounce) can of frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
  • 1 (10 to 12 ounce) can of limeade concentrate, or frozen margarita mix, thawed
  • 3-1/2 cups of water
  • 2 cups of vodka
  • 1/2 cup of granulated sugar
  • 2 liter bottle of 7 up or Sprite, chilled
Instructions

Mix the thawed lemonade, orange juice, and limeade into a large freezer safe container. Add the water, vodka and sugar, mix well and freeze overnight.

When ready to mix drinks, remove the frozen mixture from the freezer and scoop into glasses, or let sit for 5 to 10 minutes on the counter to soften, if desired. Fill glasses 1/2 to 3/4 full with the slush mixture, then top it off with the 7up or Sprite. Stir and serve immediately. Tiny umbrellas or mini flags totally optional but highly recommended. Enjoy!

Variation: Substitute rum for the vodka.
