I’m always grateful that my birthday is in the summer, and not near any major holidays. I’m not sure I’d like having to celebrate too close to a major holiday like Christmas or Thanksgiving. (Less presents duh!).
While my birthday isn’t near a major holiday, it is near a minor holiday. I was born in 7/12. Do you know what the holiday is yet?
7/11=National Free Slurpee Day at 7 Eleven. I miss is every year because I’m too busy planning my birthday or thinking about other things.
I am going to enjoy a Slushie this year even if if I have to make it myself! Which is exactly what I’m doing today.
It is easier than you might think. It only takes a few simple steps and a few common ingredients.
Blue Raspberry Slushie Recipe
- 2 cups Club Soda, Chilled
- ½ cup Sugar
- ½ tsp Blue Raspberry Lemonade Kool-Aid Drink Mix (or your favorite flavor!)
- 3 cups Crushed Ice
- 8 drops Neon Blue Food Coloring (Optional)
- Open the club soda. Dump out a few tablespoons so the bottle is not full. Freeze for 15-20 minutes.
- Blend club soda, sugar, food coloring,and Kool-Aid in a blender.
- Add the crushed ice and blend until it reaches your desired consistency. Service immediately.
