These drinks can be deceivingly strong. They are very sweet and fruity tasting. So don't drink and drive. Serve with great food and enjoy. I recommend using cherry or apricot brandy.

  • When you are ready to serve the drink, use an ice cream scoop and place one or two scoops of the mixture into glasses. Fill the rest of the glass with lemon/lime flavored soda pop. Stir and serve.

Cook's Note:

This is really good made with lemon vodka and cherry brandy--it tastes like cherry lemonade with a kick!

Unbelievably easy and yummy. Makes a large batch. I added more vodka and brandy than what is called for and skipped the cherries. Perfect! Read More

This was far too sweet for my taste even though I halved the amount of cherries in it. If I make it again I'll omit the cherries entirely and try to give it a more citrus taste. Read More

It has a great sweet flavor. It was a nice change from a margarita or daiquiri. They are not that strong. Maybe I didn't put enough scoops in glasses. Will make again for another party. Thanks! Read More

Everything was super easy...except I couldn't find grapefruit soda. No one had ever heard of it. But other than that we loved it!! We're going to add strawberries next time! Read More

I made these slushies for my girlfriends on a warm weekend night. We enjoyed them immensely! Lots of gossip and laughs and we all agreed that these were great summer drinks to enjoy. Read More

This drink was a HUGE hit at a small dinner with friends. I made one small change I pureed one 10-oz jar of cherries. This kept the sweetness under control and added a great color. I also needed more than one bottle of lemon lime soda. Don't substitute ginger ale doesn't work. Read More

Very very sweet but good taste. Was looking for a drink with brandy for Super Bowl. I think next time I would skip the cherries and use club soda instead of lemon-lime soda. Love the slushiness. Read More
