Slush is a frozen punch that my grandma used to make when I was a kid. It’s a lot like making granita, but then you add 7-up or Sprite to a glass full of the frozen bits and serve it with a straw and a spork. Or a spoon, which is all I have, but a spork would be more fun.  How often do you get to use a spork?!


4 black tea bags (I used decaf Red Rose)

1 1/4 cup sugar

1 can frozen orange juice concentrate

1 can frozen lemonade concentrate

26 oz. rum, vodka, or gin (optional)–I prefer it without…the way I remember it

7-up or Sprite, for serving

Combine 2 cups water and tea bags. Bring to a boil and set aside to cool. Remove tea bags when tea is dark. Boil 7 cups water and sugar. Cool and then combine with tea mixture. Add orange juice and lemonade concentrates. Stir in 26 oz. rum, if using.  Freeze mixture. It is easier to scoop if you stir it a few times with a fork while the mixture is freezing.

To serve, fill each glass 3/4 full with slush and then fill with 7-up or Sprite. Add a straw and spork/spoon.
