Pink Lemonade Slush is the perfect summertime drink. It is sweet, tangy and you can’t even taste the gin. It is so pretty in pink with the sugar lime rim.
Pink Lemonade Slush is the perfect summertime drink. I was introduced to this beautiful concoction by my friend Steve. I remember him telling me, “You can’t even taste the alcohol”. Well, he was right. It is sweet and tangy, and so very pretty in pink. All of Victoria’s angels are drinking it…haha. You can also use regular yellow colored lemonade for those guys that won’t drink pink. Or, just tell them it goes great with our Tri-Tip Sliders and they will love you.
This recipe goes together so quickly; then you can forget about it until your party the next day. The slush does need to freeze for 24 hours, so plan ahead. When it is time to serve, everybody loves to come and scoop out the lovely pink slush concoction into his or her glass. Grab your 7-up, Squirt, Mountain Dew, Tonic water, or whatever clear soda you feel like and fill it to the brim. Notice I said to add soda, for those of you who were tempted to add in more clear gin.
I love the slushy consistency, and with the sugar lime zest rim, you will definitely be coming back for seconds, OK… for thirds. Please don’t drink and drive. And make sure you are of age. Listen to your Mom…
So go get that Tupperware container today, and prepare to be spoiled with Pink Lemonade Slush the rest of the summer.
- 1 gallon tupperware container (my Dollar Store even had one)
- 5 cans (12 ounce cans) of concentrated frozen lemonade (pink or yellow), defrosted
- 1 bottle (750ml) gin
- 2 ½ bottles (16.9 ounce bottles) of water
- Lime zest from one lime, let it dry for 20 minutes before adding to sugar
- ½ cup sugar
- lime wedge (for rim of glasses)
- 1 bottle (2 liter) of 7-up (Squirt, Mountain Dew,Tonic Water or any clear soda can be added instead).
- In a one gallon tupperware container, pour in the lemonade concentrate (do not add any water to the concentrate), the bottle of gin, and the 2 ½ bottles of water (which should fill it to the top). Freeze uncovered for 24 hours, stirring occasionally.
- When you are getting ready to serve, take the dried out lime zest and add it to the sugar on a small plate. Mix well.
- Take a serving glass and rub the edge of the glass with the lime wedge, then dip it into the sugar/lime mixture so it coats the rim.
- Then scoop out the frozen lemonade slush into your glass until it is about ¾ full. Fill the rest of the glass with 7-up or your choice of clear soda.
