Blue Ribbon Recipe by

Everyone who has ever tasted this summertime icy drink loves it. I got this recipe from a friend about 25 years ago, when I was lucky enough to stop by her house with another friend and we were offered a taste of her new-found drink. I hope you all enjoy it too. I keep a batch of it in the freezer year round, just in case someone stops by.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Sweet, slightly fruity, and tropical this is a refreshing frozen adult beverage. It's a little on the strong side so add the lemon-lime soda topper to suit your taste. This is perfect for summer BBQs or sipping poolside - a definite crowd-pleaser. The best part... no blender is required. An easy frozen cocktail!

How To Make colorado slush

  • Gathering the ingredients.
    I double this recipe, always. Gather the ingredients.
  • Ingredients combined in a container and frozen.
    Simply put all ingredients into a large bowl and whisk together. No need to thaw frozen juices as the alcohol and pineapple juice will thaw them as you whisk. Put into airtight container (allow 1 inch of air space) and freeze overnight.
  • Slush scooped into a cup ready to top with soda.
    To serve: Place two ice cream scoops of icy yummy slush into a stemmed goblet or any pretty glass and top with a splash or more of your favorite lemon-lime type soda for ease of sipping immediately (ie: Sprite, 7-up.)
  • Colorado Slush decorated with an orange slice and cherry.
    Add a straw and decorate with an orange slice and a cherry over the edge of the glass.
