Sparkling Berry Lime Slush

Sparkling Berry Lime SlushWe 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.

… And since red is appropriate for Valentine’s Day, Independence Day, and Christmas, it’s perfect for many holidays.
