Melissa here. Tomorrow, Joey and I are posting about our recent trip to Tampa, Florida to visit my family! On that trip, we drank what I call, “My Mom’s Famous Slush.” But she’ll be quick to correct you that her friend, Margie, was actually the one to give her the recipe.
Either way, it’s famous to me, because my mom made it every year when we would go to the beach for a week on summer vacation. I was never allowed to drink it, because it was alcoholic. But I’ve finally gotten a taste, and I had to share it with you!
- 2 cups sugar
- 9 cups water
- (1) 12-ounce can frozen orange juice
- (1) 12-ounce can frozen limeade
- (1) 12-ounce can frozen lemonade
- 2 cups vodka
- 1 liter bottle of Squirt
Boil water. Add sugar, Cool. Add all other ingredients EXCEPT Squirt. Freeze overnight. Remove from freezer 30 minutes prior to serving. Serve “slushy” by breaking into chunks and pouring 3/4 bottle of Squirt over the slush. Mix and serve.
This time around, my mom couldn’t find Squirt, so she added a lemon-lime soda and froze it into the mix. Additionally, I made the ultimate vacation decision to add a “floater” – an extra shot of vodka on top of the served cup of slush. This made for an even boozier frozen treat.
It’s hard to escape the heat of summer, but I promise this orange slush will get you close!
