Vodka Summer Slush

A strawberry summer slush is the perfect concoction to chill you out in the heat of the sun whilst relaxing on a beach somewhere exotic!  Or if you don't happen to be sunning yourself in a picture perfect, sun-drenched location then you can enjoy the drink whilst daydreaming about your next jaunt!

Yield: 6 cocktails

Prep Time: 3 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 240 ml or 8 oz vodka (this will equate to about 40 ml per drink based on 6 drinks)
  • 135 g strawberry jelly (or jello)
  • 285 ml or 9.5 oz boiling water
  • 50 g sugar
  • 285 ml or 9.5 oz water
  • 170 ml or 5.5 oz pineapple juice
  • 170 ml or 5.5 oz lemon juice
  • 500 ml ginger ale
  • Lime wedges for garnish

Instructions:

  1. Add the jelly to a jug and pour over the boiling water.
  2. Stir until the jelly has dissolved completely.
  3. Place the sugar and water in a pan and heat until all the sugar has dissolved.
  4. Combine the two mixtures.
  5. Add the pineapple and lemon juice to the concoction and stir well.
  6. Pour the contents into a freezer bag that can be sealed so there is no spillage.
  7. Put the bag in the freezer but either place it on a plate or in a container as the bag may stick to the freezer.
  8. Leave in for at least 3-4 hours depending on your freezer.
  9. When you take the bag out of the freezer you need to break it into chunks to add to a jug or glasses.  If this is proving to be difficult run the bag under warm water to melt the contents slightly.
  10. If using a jug then add the frozen block or chunks and pour over the vodka and ginger ale.  Add just a little ginger ale at a time so you can gauge and control how slushy the drink will be.
  11. Serve in a long glass with a lime wedge and straw to assist with the slushiness.

  • London Cocktail Week

    Ketel One Vodka

    London cocktail week was a great opportunity to try out bars and cocktails that you hadn’t yet got around to checking out or test driving and it also provided a perfect excuse (if you needed one) to get out and about a few nights in a row to squeeze in as many £4 discounted drinks as you could in one week!

     
  • Lab Soho

    Lab Stoli

    Lab Soho is a lively, friendly cocktail bar with an edge of sticky about the place like it needs a good clean. You could argue that this adds to the character and appeal depending on what you look for in a bar. The cocktail range is vast and they taste fairly decent too but be prepared to wait if it’s busy and potentially then be faced with a glass full of crushed ice.

    How to Make Vodka

    Vodka is a neutral spirit that tends not to have a distinctive flavour or taste in its untampered form. Vodka is generally not aged and can be made using a range of accessible materials and ingredients such as potatoes, grains, sugars, fruit and most things that are capable of being fermented. This makes it a spirit that is easy to produce in a relatively short space of time.

     
  • Raspberry Vodka

    Raspberry Vodka

    I first discovered raspberry vodka a few years back whilst running a pub. It was Absolut Raspberry and as with everything that is new it had an initial surge of popularity that then curbed and evened out. It wasn’t just a flash in the pan; we kept it in stock and a few regulars that drank it with lemonade (that’s 7-up style lemonade). It was also a handy ingredient to use in shooter and cocktail recipes.

  • Vampire's Kiss

    A Vampire's Kiss cocktail is a must for any ghoulish gathering!  The bright red drink combined with the extremely effective dripping, red rim really looks the part and tastes pretty good too.
