I can't believe more people have not tried this wonderful slush! This same recipe I have made for at least 20 yrs. It is so refreshing on warm summer days and anyone who has had it, loves it! I shave off frozen mixture with a spoon and serve in a glass with just enough Sprite so that it is still slushy frozen. Mix and break up slush with spoon so Sprite is evenly distributed. Should be on the thick side. Gin keeps it from getting so frozen that you can't get it out, so don't leave it out. And yes, you can feel pretty darn good on these! Awesome! Thanks Johanne!

This is a great alternative to the "usual". We've had this recipe in our family for years - but with Amaretto instead of gin. Try it! You'll love it!

This was great! Made it for a dinner party - everyone loved it. I used Bacardi Limon Rum instead of Gin or Vodka. Some people didn't know it had alcohol in it so beware and warn your guests!

I've made this twice - the first time I brewed the tea too strong, which was a huge mistake. The tea shouldn't be strong tea, although the recipe doesn't specify. The second time I let it steep only about 3 minutes, and that was perfect. I put in about 2 1/2 cups of gin, and it didn't seem strong at all. Everyone at bunko loved it, even the woman who swore she didn't like gin.

I used Arizona Sweet tea instead of making my own tea, and used vodka instead of gin. it was the favorite at my BBQ this summer. Cant wait till next summer to make it again.

We've made this recipe for years with 2 1/2 cups of rum, mixing it with Sprite to form a thick slush. Great for hot summer days!
