We don’t drink alcohol, but I grew up with a Dad who loves juice and loves to experiment with flavors. Over the years, I’m fairly certain that he’s tried every possible combination of fruit juices mixed together. Some are better than others, and his more successful recipes were mixtures that include lemonade or limeade.
Sarah, loves slush. She requests it for EVERY holiday (and other days), as well. For this recipe, we leaned heavily on my dad’s experience with concoctions. In fact, it’s inspired by one of his best punch creations. It’s a sparkling fresh berry drink with a kick of lime and a gorgeous color.
- 2 cans (12 ounce each) frozen cranberry-raspberry juice concentrate
- 1 can (12 ounces) frozen limeade concentrate
- 5 cans water
- 1 bottle (2 liters) carbonated drink of your choice
- In a gallon size pitcher, combine frozen juices with water. Whisk until completely combined. Pour into gallon size freezer container, cover, and freeze until solid. (several hours or overnight)
- When ready to serve, use a heavy stainless steel ice cream spade or spoon to crush up the slush. Fill glasses with desired amount of frozen slush, and pour carbonated drink on top.
- Yields 3 quarts or ¾ gallon frozen slush
