I'm not even sure where to put this post, so it's going here. I am looking for a recipe. It's a powder that you use to make wine slushies. I bought some at our Street Fair today and I've had it at a friends, but sheese $12.00 a pop ....ARE YOU KIDDING ME!! I have to find out what is in the mix to make my own!! Anyone??

I'm sorry I can't be of any help with a powder recipe but I have a good brandy slush or lime slush recipe if you are interested ... I've also purchased a wine based slush from a friend who sells Tastefully Simple. You add a bottle of wine to the container, mix in their mixture and freeze. It was a little expensive for me so I stick to the other recipes I have.

Lime slush sounds good, please share
Not sure about the wine slush either, sorry!

I didn't want to interfere with your original question so I put the recipe in another thread. Enjoy!

not seen the "powder" meself, but alcohol does not freeze at 32'F / 0'C.

I suspect the powder is simply a "thickener" - could be pectin based, any starch base - arrowroot, corn starch, flour based, etc.

it could also be straight out of the chem lab....

did google discover:
" All natural ingredients: Sugar, Tea, Citric Acid, Natural Flavoring, Beet Powder

beet powder? gets better:
"Product Features
  • Beet powder is made from ripe red beets that are cooked, peeled, sliced, dried and then ground.
  • Can be used for gravies and soups, food coloring, and it is sometimes used to make lipstick.
  • Save money with combined shipping by ordering several items from Barry Farm.

OK, this is the easy way. Take one can of frozen fruit juice. The original recipe is for daquiries, so limeade, but it works equally well with almost any frozen fruit juice). Fill the can with rum (any other distilled beverage would work), then twice with 7-up (yes, diet works fine). Freeze over night. It will not freeze solid, but will turn in to a slush. The original recipe (handed down from my mom) was for limeade and 7 up and white rum. But in fact I've done it with cranberry juice, 7 up, and vodka; OJ, 7 up and vodka, etc.

Wow Claire, that sounds pretty darn good for a hot summer day. I'll have to try this one! I'll bet coconut rum would add another level to it also!
