Grown Up Strawberry Lemonade Slushies

Summer has finally shown it's face around this area and we're going to squeeze the ever-loving-life out of every second of it. Boozy pink slushies in one hand, feet in the toddler pool and faces turned towards the sun.

I first saw this slushie recipe at
Everybody Likes Sandwiches. Make it for the first time
this year, just a few days ago. It's delicious, fruity, boozy (optional) and terribly refreshing on hot days.
