Drat. I'm trying to find my husband's now deceased ex boss's wife's recipe for Bourbon Slush. It was a staple for all corporate get-togethers, and was delicious. They were originally from Alabama. Will post when I find it!

This one is so easy. I actually learned to do it in Germany when I was 11. No, I wasn't allowed to drink more than a sip! I'll have to ask Mom who taught it to her! The main thing is keeping the juice/soda/alcohol balance about the same, otherwise it will freeze solid (not enough booze) or won't freeze at all (too much booze). The only problem I've had with this recipe is people thinking that it was a wimp drink. Once a guy thought it was not alcoholic and was adding a shot of bourbon to it, and a Chinese friend drank some and got immediately sick (some Asian women cannot metabolize alcohol, something I did not know at the time).But generally this is a hit. I once made three punch bowls of it for a wedding shower; one with vodka, cranberry juice and 7 up, one with limeade, rum, and 7 up, one with pink lemonade ... well, you get the picture. It was a huge hit. Haven't made it in years, mostly because I don't have a big freezer any more.

Hi I'm not really familiar with the powder you're asking about though I'm guessing that as it's a powder, maybe gelatin?. I'm thinking of powdered jelly I think.

We buy it by the gallon in the summer. Doesn't last long. I go through about three gallons every summer. And that is for adults alone. The Italian community in Boston have been making for generations.
