Slightly Sloshed Slushy

Slightly Sloshed Slushy

Summer has kicked it up a notch or three here in the Northwest and frozen treats of all kind are on the menu.  With the 4th of July around the corner and temps promising to be in the 80’s we are collecting as many “cool” recipes and creations as possible, to give you many options for your backyard celebration.

Slightly Sloshed Slushy by Redbook Magazine.  This is an absolutely delicious cocktail and when you read the shopping list you will see a surprising ingredient. Some bartenders use it, why not you?  Shopping list;  Pear Vodka, squeezable fruit puree or or jarred baby food fruit of your choice, 7-up and juice of a lemon.  Full recipe and method

Frozen Margarita

Frozen Margarita

Frozen Margarita by  “Is a Margarita during a heatwave too cliche’?” was a comment / question I read on site yesterday and the answer is, absolutely not!  I love the fresh flavor combos that the Margarita offers as any fresh fruit goes.  Stop by your local market, browse through the stands and choose whatever makes your mouth happy.  Add some tequila, ice and start sipping.


  • Lime
  • Salt
  • 2 oz. tequila
  • ¾ oz. fresh lime juice
  • 1 oz. Triple Sec
  • 1 cup crushed ice

The Beach Towel

The Beach Towel by Saveur Magazine.  Beautifully fresh and gorgeous to look at, this tropical sensation will whisk you away to white sandy beaches and palms gently swaying in island breezes.  Shopping list; White rum, simple syrup, lime juice, strawberries, heavy cream and a banana.  Full recipe and method
