A Celebratory Drink

Wow, it has been almost a month since I last posted. I have to give a big congratulations to Tammy and Jeff on the birth of baby Rebecca Lynn on September 26th. I don't have any pictures but will be sure to share when I do! She is such a little doll!

So in honor of the birth of little precious, I am having a celebratory drink. (Roll with me here) Actually, I made a new slush recipe on Saturday night and didn't have any Sprite till today. It is darn good slush! Don't have a pic of that either as it is dark and pics with flash look horrid. I got the recipe from jenng on Tasty Kitchen.

jenng's Slush

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 9 cups water
  • 2 bags raspberry tea
  • 1 can frozen orange juice
  • 1 can frozen pink lemonade
  • 1 can frozen limeade
  • 1 26oz (750mL) black cherry vodka

In a large pot, combine 7 cups of water and sugar. Boil for approximately 1 minute and set aside.

In a tea kettle, boil remaining 2 cups of water and pour over tea bags. Steep for 20 minutes. Remove tea bags and pour into the pot.

Stir in all of the concentrates till combined. Pour in vodka and allow mixture to come to room temperature.

Pour into a large container and put it in the freezer. It won’t freeze completely due to the alcohol, but it should become slushy—thus becoming SLUSH.

Scoop into glasses till 1/2 to 3/4 full (depending on your taste) and top with soda.
Kick back, close your eyes, drink and enjoy !!!

I mixed mine in two 4L ice cream containers as it wouldn't all fit in one. Enjoy! I am!
