Currier Family Slush

My friend Barb serves this yummy slush punch at all of her family gatherings.  They served it at all three of her boy's graduation parties.  The slush is just a fun, slushy treat!  Another friend, Shelley, just built a new house with a new pool.  She thought the punch would be nice to have out by the pool  - adult style.  Barb made some for Shelley to "spike" as she and friends sat out by the new pool.  I have tried both versions - with alcohol and without.  Both are yummy!  This is great to keep in your freezer  - just to have on hand!


Currier Family Slush

3 pkgs small Jello (preferably strawberry) (Barb used sugar free)
4 cups sugar
2  -  64 oz cans pineapple juice
1 pint real lemon juice
boiling water
2 liters of ginger ale or 7-Up
(raspberry vodka - optional)

Dissolved all three packages of Jell-O into nine cups boiling water.  In separate bowl, dissolve four cups sugar into 4 cups boiling water. Once both mixtures are dissolved, Stir them together along with the pineapple juice and lemon juice.   Pour into ice cream buckets or containers suitable for freezer.  Take out of the freezer one hour before serving and place in cooler.  Check it as needed - may need to be chopped up with a spoon or ice pick.  Serve 3/4 slush to 1/4 ginger ale or 7 - up.
