I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Cherry Slurpee

If you like the frozen cherry drinks from the gas stations or the 7-11 then you will like this.  

(serves 4)

*2 cups of very cold club soda
*1/2 cup white sugar
*1/2 teaspoon cherry kool-aid mix, unsweetened
*2 teaspoons maraschino cherry juice
*3 cups crushed ice

~Mix 1 cup of the club soda, sugar & kool-aid mix into a blender.
~Mix on high until sugar is mixed and dissolved.
~Add the crushed ice and blend until the drink is smooth with no chunks of ice.
~Add remaining club soda and mix briefly.
~You may have to put the blender into the freezer for a 1/2 hour, to help thicken the slurpee up.
~Pour into 4 glasses and serve.

`substitute maraschino cherry juice with 1/2 teaspoon cherry extract.
