I love a good frozen cocktail and this Frozen Vodka Slushie is simply fantastic! I love the icy consistency and the bright burst of citrus flavor. At first I had reservations about making the entire recipe just for myself, but as soon as I tasted it I knew I would have no trouble polishing this off in a matter of days. This is such a refreshing cocktail and I can definitely see myself making it again when the need arises for a special adult beverage.
Frozen Vodka Slushie
Adapted from Entertaining
by Donna Hay
1 cup sugar
4 cups water
1-1/2 cups lemon or lime juice
1/2 - 3/4 cup vodka*
Slices of lemon or lime for garnish
*Notes: I used a citrus infused vodka
Place the sugar and water in a medium-sized saucepan and bring to a boil for a minute or two until the sugar dissolves. Allow the mixture to cool slightly before adding the lemon or lime juice and vodka. Place the mixture in a shallow container and leave in the freezer for 2 hours. Stir with a fork and freeze for another 2 hours or until firm. Break the ice with a fork or blend until smooth and serve with immediately. Slushie looks pretty served with slices of lemon or lime.
