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.


Prep Time 10 minutes
Freeze 1 day
Servings 40
Calories 130kcal


  • 6 cups water
  • 4 cups sugar
  • 46 ounces pineapple juice
  • 46 ounces orange juice
  • 4 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 liter 7-Up


  • Pour water and sugar into a LARGE bowl and stir until sugar is completely dissolved.
  • Add pineapple, orange and lemon juice. Mix well.
  • Pour into large freezer safe Tupperware. I can get mine into 2 large tupperwares. Freeze until set.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    does anyone know how to make this drink alcoholic?

    1. Bertrice

      Rum should go well with this. And a little umbrella.

    2. Tammy

      I bet it would be awesome with some coconut rum

    3. Sandy

      I make this add a 5th of peach schnapps, it is really good before freezing.

    1. Flkh

      Congrats for picking out the one little mistake in the whole should keep it to yourself.

  4. Brit Kohl

    Yum, we have an alcohol version of this adding vodka before you freeze it. It's pretty yummy too. :-)

    1. monica

      how much vodka would you add- the same amount as the water???

  5. Zulema

    Oh I live the new picture set up! Love step by step photos! Please keep this new style!

    1. Kasey

      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.

  6. Shelley

    Yummy! My kids are gonna love this! Thanks for sharing!

  7. mitchinmuskoka

    if i made this with booze, how much would i put in?
    also, why does it not freeze rock hard but scrape-able?

    1. Chef in Training

      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.

  8. Kim

    I also purée bananas to mix in before freezing.

  9. Karen

    Add a lot of Malibu rum and it makes an even bigger crowd pleaser

  10. Amanda

    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!

    1. Wendy H

      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.

  11. Rachael

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

  12. Esther

    I also was wondering about the sugar have you tried without any sugar? Since the juice is sweet already.

  13. Wendy

    Could I just not freeze it? Would it turn out ok, I'm all right with it not being slushy. Thanks!

  14. Patty

    Yummy my mom made a alcoholic version of this a lot for the adults for get together it was always a hit

  15. Molly

    I love a lot of you recipes....please keep posting. ...

  16. Marlene Schembri

    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.

  17. Nancy tirva

    looks great but for a diabetic a lot of suga. Can anything be substituted or less?

  18. LaVonne Iverson

    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!

    I can't see the whole recipe?? How much sugar water do you need and how do you make it?

    1. Chef in Training

      I am so sorry you were having trouble. I just updated the recipe. Will you let me know if you are able to view it now or if you are still having troubles? Thanks so much :)

  20. linda

    why do you need sugar with all that sweet juice?

  21. Kacker

    Approximately how many servings does this make?

  22. Amy Mullen

    How many servings would this recipe make? I am wanting to make this for my daughter's graduation party for approx. 400-500 people!


    I love this recipe. Had lost it years ago and found it again thankfully. I do not see anywhere on here how many servings it makes?? Hopefully you can tell me.

  24. Deborah Ramirez


    So much sugar, that's crazy.

  25. Kristi


    My Mom would make this when I was a kid and she added sliced up bananas. Soo good! Thanks for reminding me about this wonderful, summer drink!

  26. John W. Crawford

    This drink does sound delicious. But I am a little confused over how much "slush" should be mixed with the 7 Up. If you use a full 2 liter amount of 7 Up, what volume of slush would you use to mix with that volume? Thanks.
