Christmas Slush

I don’t think I have ever met anyone that really despised a slush. I mean really? Think about it? Who has ever said? ‘Oh Nasty! Is that a slushie?’ Seriously don’t think I have ever met anyone with those feelings. If you are one of those, comment now and I will revoke my comment but I doubt it will ever happen. Because slushies are awesome! They are easy. Entertain a crowd. They can be use as an appetizer or dessert. Kids love them. Adults love them. They look amazing. They taste amazing, and go with any occasion or season. This Christmas slush is just what you need for the holidays this year!

What you need to make Christmas slush

  1. You’ll need a punch bowl and ladle. A drink dispenser won’t work for this because it is a thick slushy consistency.
  2. Juice. You will need 3 juices. I love to buy the 100% juice with no added sugars or anything because you will be adding more sugar.
  3. Sugar. why sugar? Well, I tried to make it with just the juice one time, no sugar and although it tasted really yummy with the sprite it did not turn into a slushie consistency. Adding the sugar changes the make up of this drink and is important for it to turn out just the way it is intended. In my own opinion, a sweet drink occasionally at a party is completely acceptable for me and my kids ;) so I don’t mind!
  4. 2- 2 liters of lemon lime soda :)

Serve with Sprite over.  I added some blueberries, a raspberry and mint leaf to a toothpick as a garnish. Beautiful, nice little touch the guest can munch on.

  1. IN the introduction under “What you will need to make christmas slush”, #4 was 2-2 litres of lemon lime soda. This wasn’t mentioned in the printable form of the RECIPE. Is the lemon lime soda an ingredient in the recipe?
