Irene's Slush Punch
Ingredients for 2 large punch bowls.
1 quart of water
6 cups of sugar
1 bottle lemon juice (16 oz.)
1 can HiC orange drink
1 can Hi C pineapple drink
2 cans Hi C orange/pineapple
1 large can crushed pineapple (undrained)
1 jar marichino cherries (I don't use them because I don't like them)
2-4 (2 liters) of sprite, 7-up, or ginger ale. This depends on if you 1/2 the recipe.
1. Boil water and sugar until sugar is melted. Add the rest of the ingredients. I usually put it in two large containers with a lid. I've never kept it longer than 4 months, but there is really nothing that says you can't.
2. Two hours before serving set out and let slightly thaw. Use a fork and start to slush. Add ginger ale, sprite, or 7-up.
I usually freeze this in two containers. You could 1/2 the recipe pretty easily by just adding the orange/pineapple drink and 1/2 the other ingredients. When I make up the punch, I add one container of the punch to my punch bowl, and then I pour in 2 (2 liters) of ginger ale over the slush and stir.
