Adult Slushies

Recipe by  

"These drinks can be deceiving. They are very sweet and fruity tasting. So don't drink and drive. Serve with great food and enjoy. I recommend using cherry or apricot brandy."

Unbelievably easy and yummy. Makes a large batch. I added more vodka and brandy than what is called for and skipped the cherries. Perfect!

This was far too sweet for my taste even though I halved the amount of cherries in it. If I make it again, I'll omit the cherries entirely and try to give it a more citrus taste.

Tried this and it's a great summer treat!

It has a great sweet flavor. It was a nice change from a margarita or daiquiri. They are not that strong. Maybe I didn't put enough scoops in glasses. Will make again for another party. Thanks!

Everything was super easy...except I couldn't find grapefruit soda. No one had ever heard of it. But other than that, we loved it!! We're going to add strawberries next time!

I made these slushies for my girlfriends on a warm weekend night. We enjoyed them immensely! Lots of gossip and laughs and we all agreed that these were great summer drinks to enjoy.

This drink was a HUGE hit at a small dinner with friends. I made one small change, I pureed one 10-oz jar of cherries. This kept the sweetness under control and added a great color. I also needed more than one bottle of lemon lime soda. Don't substitute, ginger ale doesn't work.

Very, very sweet, but good taste. Was looking for a drink with brandy for Super Bowl. I think next time I would skip the cherries, and use club soda instead of lemon-lime soda. Love the slushiness.
