I looked up the recipe and my Grandma called them ďSneaky PeteísĒ 😂
1 Lg can Frozen Lemonade Juice
1 Lg can frozen orange juice
1 Lg can frozen strawberry juice
1/4 cup powdered sugar
64 oz 7-up
1 Fifth Vodka
Mix and freeze til itís slushy
To make the drink mix 1/2 glass slush mix with 7-up
It makes a lot, but you can keep it in the freezer for a long time!

Now that sounds interesting. Have to ask though...why is it called Whiskey Slush if it takes vodka?
Thinking I'll halve the recipe and keep it on hand.
Valerie, thanks for asking and Gumdrops, thanks for sharing!!

Apple cider and Fireball😁 may have to try this. If you put a shot of Fireball into a glass of Angry Orchard beer, you get a drink called Angry Balls. I have not tried that one either, but it was popular amongst my bowling league friends.

Favorite Christmas movies: The Family Man and Scrooge (with Alistair Sims)

Favorite Christmas song: Silver Bells and Good King Wenceslas

Favorite Christmas candy: Chocolate covered cherries

Favorite Christmas adult beverage: Slush, similar to the recipe mentioned above but with pineapple juice instead of strawberry juice and 26oz vodka mixed in a beef bucket and put in the freezer. Scoop the slush into a hurricane glass and top with 7-up/sprite. Sooooo yummy! So funny that someone in the USA posted a similar recipe because this is only known in Newfoundland!
