Gin Slush

Summertime evenings are a perfect time to sit around the campsite or boat dock swapping humorous travel stories with a circle of first time friends while sipping fruity drinks. I like that this is easy to make at a moments notice and can be customized to fit the occasion.

The unit of measurement in this recipe is all based on the size of the frozen lemonade can.


 2 cans frozen lemonade
 1 can frozen pineapple juice
 2 cans water
 2 cans lemon-lime soda
 2 cans gin or vodka (adult option)
 maraschino cherries (optional garnish)


Chill all ingredients. I always start with the lemonade and take care to save one can in good condition to use as a measuring cup for the rest of the ingredients. If the fruit juices (lemonade and pineapple) are still frozen hard, remove the metal top lid and zap each one alone in the microwave for a little less than a minute to soften but not melt. Magically the bottom metal lid does not cause any problems here. In a large pitcher combine the lemonade, pineapple juice and use one of the lemonade cans to measure two more cans of water. Mix until no more frozen chunks remain. Using the same lemonade can add two more cans of lemon-lime soda.

Gin or vodka is optional depending on the group of friends. For an extra girlie twist top with cherries right before serving. Serves 5 to 10 friends depending on the optional ingredients, size of the glasses and length of the conversation.

Serves: 5 to 10

You may notice that some of our recipes do not contain exact measurements for all ingredients. Cooking on the road is an art more than a science. We view each recipe as only a suggestion - a starting point for your own personal creativity.

We aren't usually dealing with food chemistry in these recipes since we aren't baking with leavening, etc., so feel free to use as much or as little of any suggested ingredient. Be creative and imaginative! Substitute the foods you like or have available for the ones in the recipes. And if you find something that turns out well for you, please share it with the rest of us.
