The slushy method makes great whiskey sours, a can of lemonade concentrate, a can of whiskey and ice cubes buzzed in the blender, topped with a maraschino cherry or two!
I've used the "slushy" method for frozen daiquiris. I don't think it's what I want for a mint julep.

I put the glass in the little niche in the refrigerator door and push it to the back. Crushed ice happens.

Any time I am in hospital (as our UK friends like to say) I always ask for a pitcher of crushed ice, no water. I love to eat crushed ice.

We tend to say it that way here in Canada too.

Old vine and Linda, you don't have to rub it in! No, I don't have that nifty little hole in the door of the fridge. :D. LOL

I love that expression. Another one I heard was in relation to what the Queen owns. The swans belong to Queen. My first husband came from the Lakes District in Cockermouth. Marrying him and I had to learn a whole new language. When I would get a baffled lok on my face, he would get so exasperated with me. He hadn't been in this country too long, so it was a learning lesson for him also.

I once read a book written my a former American soldier stationed in England during The War. It was hilarious. All about the differences in our language in common. Or not so common. He had desk duty and one lovely young lady asked him if he had a 'rubber.' He had to ask a male in the office why would she ask him that? He was in a state of shock. His first thought was that maybe it was her way of telling him he might get lucky that night. I was on the floor reading that book.

VitaMix 5200 works. Pulse a few times. Or, stick the pelican on the N50 with the ice crushing disk in it.That ice crushing disk also pulps tomatoes like nobody's business.

A funny bird, the Pelican. His beak can hold more than his belly can.
