Hidden Cocktails (Summer Edition): Patriotic Vodka Lemonade Slushies
The Fourth of July never looked so good
With the summer heat bearing down on us, a refreshing drink can be a blessing. It’s important to find the perfect drink to pair with our picnics, backyard barbecues, and beachside adventures. Discovering something that’s delicious, sweet, and refreshing will make you welcome at any summertime hang out. This week we’ve found the Vodka Lemonade Slushies.
Vodka lemonade combines our own childhood memories of summer with the maturity of adulthood. Making it red white and blue just gives it that kind of American spirit that makes it perfect for any July 4th celebration.
- 9 cups of ice
- 1 cup of grenadine
- 1 cup of Blue Curacao
- 1 cup of vodka
- 1 cup of lemonade
- Use a food processor to crush 3 cups of ice and grenadine syrup together. This will end up being the bottom layer so making sure it’s thick is important. (In some cases you may need to add an extra cup of ice)
- Use a food processor to crush 3 cups of ice with Blue Curacao together. It will also help if this layer is extra thick too, feel free to use the same trick mentioned on the last step here.
- Blend vodka, lemonade, and the remaining 3 cups of ice together until slushy.
- Layer the 3 blends with grenadine on the bottom, Blue Curacao in the middle, and the lemonade on top.
