How to Make a Tropical Slushie for Adults

Adult Tropical Slushie

Today I’ve veered from my DIYs to share a delicious summer drink with you! One of my bloggy friends is celebrating her birthday this week and asked us to gather up some adult birthday party ideas for her. I know immediately that I wanted to share this Slush recipe. My mother-in-law made this for me, and now I make a batch (or two or three… ) every summer. It is theΒ perfect refreshing summer drink and the perfect addition to an adult birthday bash.

I refer to this as our adult summer slushie at home – the “adult” implies alcoholic, lol. We always have to have something on hand for the little girls to drink, because otherwise they will want a sip too. Or we wait until the girls are in bed so the adults can enjoy a cool cocktail! I LOVE love the tropical flavours of this drink. Once you take a sip, you will want to make it all the time! But be warned… Β the alcohol doesn’t taste that strong! It’s a little too easy to have a few glasses in a row!

A refreshing tropical drink for those warm summer nights!
Ingredients
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 small real lemon juice bottle (440ml)

  • 1 banana (mashed)
  • ¾ bottle of gin or vodka (700ml)

Instructions
  1. Mix sugar and water in a pot. Bring to a boil for 15 minutes, and then let cool for 20 minutes.
  2. Put the cooled mixture in a large container that you can put in the freezer - I use an old ice cream pail.
  3. Mix in lemon juice, pineapple juice, banana, and ¾ of bottle of alcohol (vodka or gin). Mix it all together and store in the freezer
  4. When mixture is frozen, it is ready to serve. Fill your glass ¾ full of 7Up (or Ginger Ale) and put 2-3 scoops of frozen mixture on top.
  5. Store in freezer or in between servings.

  1. these look really good, and it’s nice that they don’t have rum in, i was expecting them to as they are tropical, but i cant stand rum, so i’m looking forward to making them!
