Here is a great drink for the summer months. It can be kept frozen for several months.

1 cup Sugar

1 cups Water

1 46oz can Pineapple Juice

1 6oz can frozen Orange Juice Concentrate

1 16oz jar stemless Cherries, chopped

1 15oz can Crushed Pineapple

32 ounces Lemon-Lime Soft Drink (7up or Sprite)

3/4. to 1 fifth Bourbon

Add sugar to water and heat in microwave for 1 to 2 minutes. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Add juices, cherries, pineapple, soft drink and Bourbon, stirring well. Freeze in quart-sized containers, stirring occasionally while in the freezer.

Gently break up slush with tines of a fork to mix fruit into slush before serving. Serve in sparkling glasses with spoons.


Good Cooking, Good Eating and Good Living!!!


I lived in New Orleans, since birth, until Hurricane Katrina. I now live in Arkansas with my wife and our spoiled-rotten dog. I have been cooking since I was 8. My first cookbook, You can't keep New Orleans out of the cook, is now available at and most online bookstores. It is also available on Kindle and Nook.
