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.
Strawberry Lemonade Slushie
Everybody Likes Sandwiches
1/2 container of frozen lemonade concentrate
juice of 1 lemon or lime
1 1/2 cups frozen strawberries
Spoon half the lemonade into a blender or tall pitcher. Add strawberries and lemon or lime juice. Add a few splashes of water and blend or use immersion blender, until it becomes a slush. Add more water if necessary. Add ice cubes and rum; pulse several more times. Pour into glasses and serve.
