Although I do like your idea Mav. Mix it, freeze it and scoop it. Would be nice to be able to make them in a pinch. My family likes to "overdo" things sometimes.......

Thanks, but actually it was GB's idea first, LOL.

I remember as a kid you could get your own little machine that came with the syrup and carbonated water. You would then mix it to make pop. I have no idea if they are still around anymore or not.

Treasure Island is famous for that drink (Mandalay Bay has them too.) I've tried to figure out the formula at home and it never works out (always tastes flat.) The closest I've come is with a regular rum and coke, but use lots of shaved ice instead of cubes. A dash of bitters and live wedge and you're good to go.

Anejo and frozen orange juice concentrate is pretty tasty and might have more vitamins?

Try this.. might work.

Put the rum in the freezer.. the colder the better. Mix with the ice and make a thick slushy, add the coke. the hyper cold rum should ice down the coke helping it to freeze.

I worked in a convenience store, not 7/11, but we served something called "Mr. Freeze". It was basically a giant snow cone machine with flavoured syrups, like Coke, cherry, etc. Anyway, the Coke you get in restaurants is basically just coke syrup and CO2. So, you could go to a restaurant supply store, by a jug of coke syrup, freeze it with the rum and then add club soda to it!

Or, go to 7/11....

You know, I forgot I posted this, and just ran across it. I concur RUM1-I've tried several variations and none are exactly right (didn't stop me from drinking them though )

I have to wonder if the key isn't so much in the ingredients but in the machine. A cursory check on ebay for a used Icee machine tells me I've got my work cut out for me if I'm gonna justify buying one to Mrs SK!!
