Ingredients For Colorado Slush

  • 1 cup apricot brandy
  • 1 cup vodka
  • 1 can (46 oz) pineapple juice
  • 1 can (6 oz) frozen pink lemonade concentrate
  • 1 can (6 oz) frozen orange juice concentrate
  • Sprite, 7-Up, or any lemon-lime soda (for serving)

Directions:

  1. Mix Ingredients:
    • In a large bowl, combine the apricot brandy, vodka, pineapple juice, frozen pink lemonade concentrate, and frozen orange juice concentrate.
    • Whisk together until the frozen juices are fully incorporated. No need to thaw the frozen juices beforehand, as the alcohol and pineapple juice will help thaw them as you whisk.
  2. Freeze the Mixture:
    • Transfer the mixture into an airtight container, leaving about 1 inch of air space at the top. This allows the mixture to expand as it freezes.
    • Freeze the mixture overnight.
  3. Serve the Slush:
    • To serve, place two ice cream scoops of the frozen slush into a stemmed goblet or any pretty glass.
    • Top with a splash or more of your favorite lemon-lime soda (like Sprite or 7-Up) to make it easier to sip immediately.
    • Add a straw and garnish with an orange slice and a cherry over the edge of the glass.

Notes:

  • Double the Recipe: This recipe can easily be doubled to serve more guests.
