This drink is one my mother used to make for parties, summer family-style weddings, showers, etc. The adults always enjoyed it (and so did we kids ;) ).
This is absolutely wonderful on a hot summer day. Enjoy!
Orange & Lemonade Vodka Slush
4 Cups Sugar
6 Cups Water
2 12 ounce containers of Frozen Orange Juice
1 12 ounce containers of Frozen Lemonade
7-Up, Sprite, or Gingerale
Make a simple syrup: Add the sugar and water to a sauce pan, and bring to a boil. Allow to simmer for 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat, and cool completely.
In a large mixing bowl, mix together the orange juice and lemonade concentrate. Add in the vodka, and stir well to mix. Add the simple syrup.
Put in a large container, and put into the freezer. Allow to freeze at least 24 hours.
To serve this, use 1/3 Vodka Slush to 2/3 7-up, Sprite or Gingerale. Garnish with a slice of fresh sliced oranges or lemons.
