Berry Slush… also known as a slushie. I love slushies. They are a mixture between a drink and a frozen drink. Most of you are familiar with a Slurpee or an ICEE… but this is something a little bit different. You don’t need an expensive machine to make these. Yes… you can make this Berry Slush at home and serve it at your next BBQ or potluck.
This makes up about 5 quarts… so you can half the recipe if desired. But… for a big party or celebration it makes the perfect amount.
Here is the recipe:
By Carrie Perrins
*Adapted from Taste of Home
1 package (3oz) berry blue or raspberry gelatin
2 cups boiling water
2 cups sugar
1 can (46oz) pineapple juice
2 liters ginger ale
4 1/2 cups cold water
1 cup lemon juice
Blue or red food coloring
In a large container, dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Stir in sugar until dissolved. Add pineapple juice, ginger ale, water, and lemon juice. Add food coloring. (I had to add a lot of food coloring to get this color.) Freeze for at least 6 hours. The longer the better.
Remove from freezer 20 minutes before serving. Stir so that the mixture with be slushy.
