Tomorrow afternoon, I am throwing my son’s third annual slip-n-slide party! This party is a blast! We typically have somewhere between 25-40 soaking wet kids running around our backyard, screaming, swimming and sliding.

Since most of the children are local, and their parents will walk them to our house, I am offering a special slush just for the moms and dads.

This drink is ice-cold, so I am sure that they will love it!

This frozen cocktail (found on is made with gin (the quintessential hot-weather drink).

But you can easily substitute the gin for vodka if you are not a fan.

Ingredients –

  • Two (2) cups of white sugar
  • Seven (7) cups of water
  • Four (4) tea bags
  • Two (2) cups of boiling water
  • One (1) (12 fluid ounce) can of frozen lemonade concentrate
  • One (1) (12 fluid ounce) can frozen orange juice concentrate
  • Two (2) cups of gin

Directions –

  • Put the seven (7) cups of water in a large saucepan, and heat on high until boiling.
  • Add sugar and stir until dissolved; set aside to cool.
  • Place the four (4) teabags in two (2) cups of boiling water, and let steep until desired strength is acquired.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the sugar water, tea, lemonade concentrate and orange juice concentrate.
  • Stir in gin. Place in freezer container, and freeze overnight.
  • To serve, place several scoops into a tall glass, and fill with any clear carbonated beverage.

Stay Cool!

Love & Soul Always, Kay
