Grown Up Blue Raspberry Slush Puppies

I  love me a good cocktail and I'm not afraid to put in the work to get there.  But sometimes, the novelty of the idea wears off when I can't really figure out how to make those 'super cool' ingredients work.  This was actually the case on Wednesday when my first ever batch of Jolly Rancher Infused Vodka's was finally done.  Ok, it only took 12 hours but when you're so anxiously awaiting the result, that's a long time!

Jen from is a vodka wizard.
Anyway, my original plan had been to mix the infused vodka with seltzer and voila!  Instant yummy!  Except it didn't really do it for me.  Not sure why but it just didn't.  Time for Plan B.  My sister and I pulled out the blender (actually we used the Margaritaville Machine because we didn't have our blender handy) and it was 'make it work time'!  We stumbled upon a dead ringer for the Blue Raspberry Slush Puppies of our youth.  Try these babies.  You won't regret it!

Grown Up Slush Puppies
Makes 2-4 drinks.  Depending upon who is pouring...

1/2 can frozen lemonade concentrate
1/3 (of that same can) Blue Raspberry Jolly Rancher Vodka
Crushed or Shaved ice to taste. 

Combine all ingredients into a blender and whip her up!  Add more ice if you feel that the result is too tart.  This will take you back to those summer days of your youth, riding you bike to the corner store for a slushie!
