Frozen Vodka Slushie

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.

by Donna Hay
Serves 4

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.

  1. I may steal your idea - I love vodka so this would be ideal! Hope you are staying warm and aren't inundated with snow.

  2. I'm more of a wine drinker but something that icy and citrusy would be very welcome on a hot summer's day.....if we ever have one of those again ;)!

  6. Oh, Kim! We love our cocktails and vodka is one of the few "hard liquors" that I drink. It's almost like a frozen margarita, but no tequila. I'm pinning this one, for those summer months. I can see coming home from a hard day at the office, on a Friday night, and having these ready to go! Love this.

  7. Love, love, love this, Kim. I'm all out of vodka, but it's on the shopping list for the weekend so I can give this a try - exactly my kind of drink.
