Summer Punch Slush

Also known as the Wedding reception punch, this slush is wonderful in the hot summer days in Phoenix or...anywhere. So refreshing and cool. I myself, have made this for a couple of weddings, and it's always a hit. It's still blistering hot out, 114 this afternoon at 4:50p.m., so make this for your family, they will love you for it.

Summer Punch Slush
from Margie M.

One 12 oz. can frozen orange juice concentrate
One 12 oz. can frozen lemonade concentrate
4 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla flavoring
2 teaspoons almond flavoring (I have made this without the almond flavoring and we still liked it a lot)
20 cups water

Mix well to dissolve sugar. Freeze in one large tupperware-type container or in several gallon size zip-lock baggies placed in the large Tupperware container. Set out about an hour before serving to partially thaw. Smash it up and add a cold 7-Up type pop to make into a smooth slush. I use a potato masher to smash it up smooth.

Have one or two 2-liter bottles of ice-cold pop on hand. You probably won't use but one.

Summer Punch
Makes one gallon

This is the same punch but in unfrozen state and without the fizz of the pop. Or you could add some pop if you wanted to.

1 small can frozen orange juice concentrate
1 small can frozen lemonade concentrate
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon almond flavoring
1 teasponn vanilla flavoring

Mix well to dissolve sugar. Pour into a gallon container and fill to top with water. Refrigerate until well chilled so the flavors blend. Shake or stir before pouring.
