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 BBQ's or sipping poolside - a definite crowd pleaser. The best part... no blender is required. An easy frozen cocktail! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Colorado Slush

Step-by-Step

  1. I double this recipe, always. Gather the ingredients.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.)
  4. Add a straw and decorate with an orange slice and a cherry over the edge of the glass.
