Happy Thursday! We are one day closer to the weekend. To celebrate I have been playing around with a new drink. Ok, it may be a variation on a drink that already exists and I just don’t know about it. Regardless…. I give you the Lemonade Slushie……
I was looking for an alternative to the Margarita as well as the proverbial summer drink – the gin and tonic. I love the crisp taste of gin and prefer it over tequila, so opting to create a cocktail featuring gin seemed like a good idea.
I had a little bit of lemonade left in the refrigerator and a bunch of crushed ice. I gathered the ingredients together and pullout the Vitamix. Of course you can use a regular Waring blender, but I use the Vitamix for everything. It blends smoothies leaving no pulp, and reduces crushed ice to nothing.
I poured 8 ounces of lemonade into the Vitamix along with a few ounces of gin and a bunch of ice. I blended it well, creating a slushie if you will. It was simple and refreshing.
This can be made without the gin as a treat for the little ones…. You could also replace the gin with either tequila or rum for another variation.
