Slushy Punch

This is a fun and tasty drink that I got from my sister Wendi. Basically you make a mixture ahead of time, pour it into 2 containers (probably something that looks nice because you might set it on the table) then freeze it. When you are ready to serve, use an ice cream scoop to scoop out some of the frozen slush, put it in a cup then pour 7 up over the top. Because you are using unsweetened koolaid you can make it in any flavor you want (or color to go with a theme). You can even make each bowl a different color for variety. This makes a pretty good amount.

Slushy Punch

16 cups water
6 cups sugar
2 (12 oz) cans frozen lemonade
3 pkgs koolaid
2 cups pineapple juice
1/2 cup lemon juice
7 up

Heat 8 cups of water to boil, add an dissolve sugar and koolaid in it. Add remaining water and the rest of the ingredients. Mix well and put into 2 containers then freeze. When ready to serve, pull out 1 container at a time, scoop out about 1/2 cup of slush, put in a cup. Pour 7 up over the top and enjoy. When it begins to thaw, put it back in the freezer and use the other frozen slush. Keep switching so it always stays frozen.

Why have I never had this? Did you and Wendi have this on a secret sister's getaway that you "forgot" to tell me about? Also, why didn't Wendi post this herself. I'm not seeing a whole lot of participation from her on the food blog. LOSER!

This does sound good, though. I'll have to try it. Glad someone is willing to share the recipe.

I think she is to busy swimming laps in the swim pool preparing herself for sharkfest while we are swapping recipes and gorging ourselves on yummy food. W H A T E V E R!
