....in a superficial, shallow, only-if-you-keep-me-cool, kind of way.
To celebrate my return to regulated temperatures in the house, I'll share two of my favorite recipes for staying cool! These are my favorite slush recipes, which are great to have on hand. All you need to do is scoop out and fill about 3/4 of your glass and then add Sprite or 7Up to fill each glass, and you've got a really special treat. It's nice to serve to friends who stop by!
5 cups rhubarb
6 cups water
Boil until the rhubarb is mushy. Then strain, saving all the liquid, into an empty ice cream pail. Throw out what's left of the rhubarb mush.
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 can of frozen concentrate orange juice (or you can choose a different flavor if you like)
1 can of frozen lemonade
Mix all together in the ice cream pail, and store in the freezer.
4 cups water
2 cups sugar
Bring to a boil and let cool.
48 oz. pineapple juice
1 can frozen concentrate orange juice
1 can frozen concentrate lemonade
6 or more ripe bananas, smashed
Mix all together and freeze in an ice cream pail.
Remember to always serve with a straw....you need some type of 'poking/stirring device' to mix the slush as you drink, and it's a lot easier to drink with a straw too!
Now just scoop out the frozen slush, and add 7Up to the glass, raise your glass and toast to my favorite new friend, Lennox!!
