Adult Slushie

Thanks for sharing!

 

Adult slushie recipe for a summer crowd from Our Southern Home #cocktail #alcoholicslushie #adultslushie

School is out and it is summer! Our family loves to spend time at the family beach cottage that we share with my husband's sisters. We always host a 4th of July party! This Adult Slushie has been made by my sister-in-law for as long as I have been a member of the family…almost 25 years…I'm sure even before that!

This week I am sharing 4th of July inspiration with some of my blogging friends!

Patriotic tour of ideas to celebrate the 4th of July!

Below you will find the schedule and all of the wonderful projects! This is one creative group!

You may ask….why share this slushie? It is the one thing all the adults expect at our party and all summer at the beach! The kids expect ice cream and fun games….we expect the slushie! The recipe is so easy!!! You will need a large plastic container that can go in the freezer. I've had mine for many years. It's by Rubbermaid and is called a #8 Servin' Saver. I just looked it up online and kind of laughing. Mine is listed as 1980s vintage! Lol!!! It says a #8 is 33 cups. 

Here is the recipe!

Notes
  1. During the freezing process, I like to occasionally stir to keep the alcohol distributed.
  2. It will not completely freeze due to the alcohol.
  3. Scoop out with large spoon or ice cream scoop into desired size serving cups.
  4. May need to eat with a spoon at first.

I normally do not drink or buy soft drinks, but this is the exception!

This was the slushie frozen just over night. I pulled it out to photograph for this post. We did have friends over for a cook-out that night and served it. It was more frozen at that time being the 24 hour mark.

Our party starts with the viewing or participating in the neighborhood 4th of July parade! It's fun and silly! Everyone decorates their bikes, strollers, golf carts…whatever! The organizer/starting point had all the participants gather for a before parade shot! Fun idea! (not our house!)

The night ends with fireworks watching on the back upper deck. Southport, NC does a huge show. We are able to sit at home and have a front and center view!

Most importantly, it's about spending a wonderful afternoon and evening with family and friends!

Hopefully, you haven't been too bored with the family/friend pics. 

I hope you are inspired to plan your own 4th celebration. Maybe add the adult slushie recipe and a few of the activities mentioned to your already planned gathering! 

I'll be sharing another 4th favorite very soon…..Chocolate Oreo Ice cream!

  3. Christy, I am sure this is going to become a permanent part of our 4th of July celebration. I can’t wait to try it. I’m just afraid that, in the heat, I’ll be constantly slurping one of those, and if I do, I might completely miss the fireworks! thanks for the recipe. Your celebration looks like so much fun! How wonderful to have a place where you can celebrate the 4th with family at the beach. Your children are so good looking. laurie

  4. I can see why there might be no other place you’d want to be on the 4th, than with your family at the beach. You all look like you are having so much fun.

  13. I can’t wait to try your adult slushie recipe! I’m going to the beach on Saturday and would love to enjoy this with my mom, aunt, and cousin.

    Your 4th of July in Southport looks like so much fun! Being able to watch fireworks from your cottage is so nice. It’s been a few years since I’ve seen any.

I love hearing from you!
