Slush

This drink is AMAZING! Words cannot even begin to describe how DELICIOUS this drink is!

I remember my grandma or mom always making this for a special dinner. I make it just because.  I seriously don’t even need a reason to make this because I just love it so much! It so easy to make and it can last you a little while.

Slush
 
The best drink in the entire world and SO easy to make! Everyone will be asking you for the recipe!
Recipe type: Dessert
Ingredients
  • 6 cups water
  • 4 cups sugar
  • 46 oz. CAN pineapple juice
  • 46 oz. CAN orange juice, I pour the orange juice into the empty pineapple juice can
  • 4 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 2 liter 7-Up
Instructions
  1. Pour water and sugar into a LARGE bowl and stir until sugar is completely dissolved.
  2. Add pineapple, orange and lemon juice. Mix well.
  3. Pour into large freezer safe Tupperware. I can get mine into 2 large tupperwares. Freeze until set.
  4. Using an ice cream scoop, scrape mixture to create slush. Once you have created the amount of slush you want to use, mix it with half and half proportions with 7-up.
  5. If I am only making this for my little family, I only scrape out enough for what I want to drink at the time then put the rest back in the freezer to use again later.

Enjoy!

**You can easily sub some of your favorite alcohol for the water to this before freezing to make it an alcoholic beverage if desired**

      My family has made a version very similar to this since I was just a little lady too. We make it pretty much the same but add some mashed up bananas. Yummy. One of my favorites.

      I am not sure. I have never made this alcoholic before, but I am you could sub out as much of the water as you wanted with the alcoholic beverage you want. just subtract the amount of alcohol added from the amount of water required. It does freeze rock hard, at least you want it really frozen so that the “Slush” doesn’t melt so quickly. You just use an ice cream scraper and scrape it off, as it gets a *little* more melted, it will become easier to scrape.

    My mom and dad had a drink in Hawaii very similar to this. Pineapple juice, OJ, maraschino cherry juice and amaretto. It is out of this world!

      Ooooooh this sounds good with cherry too! I think I will just put the liquor in the bottle and people can add their own if they want it.

    Sounds delish and just what this pregnant lady is craving-but would there be an alternative to all that sugar?

    Hey dear really seems delicious but fatting too if you could post something similar but not that sugary. Thanks a lot for all these interesting recipes.

    Here’s another version that I used to make back in the good old days with alcohol : Boil 3 1/2 cups water with 1 cup sugar, measure out 2 cups of the boiling water and let cool with 4 green tea bags soaking in mixture. When cool, remove tea bags and mix water & tea combo together in a large freezable container with: 1 – 12 oz frozen lemonade concentrate, 1 – 12 oz orange juice frozen concentrate, 2 cups of your favorite brandy, gin or vodka, then Freeze. When ready to drink put 2 tablespoons of mixture in a glass and add Lemon sour or Squirt. Mixture will remain somewhat slushy as the alcohol will not freeze. Enjoy!
