This is a great recipe! I have also added a 46 oz can of pineapple juice. I also added one more cup of Whiskey to this as the added pineapple jusce will make it want to freeze harder. You want to be able to scoop it out and only add a little ginger ale or lemon lime carbonated type beverage. I keep it in the freezer all summer and use it when ever I want a nice cold punch like drink. If you do not add the tea it will not taste the same so don't forget the tea. I steep 6 tea bags in two cups of very hot water. This makes a good and strong tea. Read More

I'm kind of in the middle of the road on this one. It's not bad but as written the amount of whiskey is sort of pointless. If I make this again I'll be making some changes. I would change the ginger ale to Sprite raise the amount of whiskey and maybe cut back the water a bit. Read More

I love this stuff! It is so refreshing on a summer day! The only changes to this recipe is I used a 12 oz. can of orange juice and the recipe I used was a 1/2 gal. of bourbon whiskey. It makes it strong but the lemon-lime soda covers up the strongness and it packs an extra punch! This one batch is HUGE so make it for a party/get together or if you want it for the freezer for all summer. Read More

very good slush NO extra sugar is needed all the juice concentrate is plenty sweet (and I like sweet cocktails). I'm not sure I cared for the orange juice flavor in this I think next time (there will be one!) I may try limade and lemonade combined. I'll report back! UPDATE: tastes very good with limade instead of Orange juice concentrate. I love this recipe! Read More

Delightful party beverage!! This is the one everybody asks if I plan to make! I have to make a double batch (I mix and freeze it in the top of my rubbermaid cake keeper and it fits perfectly) for parties and it is ALWAYS all gone by the end of the evening. I prefer the ginger ale but the sprite will do in a pinch. I agree with an earlier poster--you will definitely need more than one liter of the soda. We might go through 3-4 two-liters for a double batch. Read More

This recipe is also great using Peach Schnapps. Just add a large bottle in lieu of the whiskey and use 7Up instead of ginger ale. For those who don't like whiskey it's a nice refreshing alternative for a hot summer day. Oh and I always used green tea instead of black tea but I don't think it really matters what kind of tea you use. Read More

My family has been using this recipe for years as well. We use 4 tea bags in 2 cups of water and 2 cups of sugar dissolved in the 7 cups of water. I have swiched it up once in a while with different juices. I always use the lemonade but experiment with different juice. My favorite is Cranberry juice with orange spice tea and I use vodka instead of whiskey. During the holidays I try and find cranberry ginger ale instead of lemon-lime soda or you could use a sour soda like 50-50 or squirt. In the summer I have also used a citrus punch juice and a citrus vodka. There are soooo many possibilities with this recipe!! Have fun and enjoy!!! Read More

This is one of my favorite recipes. I have been making it for years and always have it in my freezer during the summer. I also add maraschino cherries plus some of the juice. I use Amaretto instead of whiskey making it more like an Amaretto slush. Is much smoother. I will try limeade next time. Never thought of that. And it's wonderful with Fresca or Sprite instead of Ginger Ale. Read More
