Cranberry-Orange Slush Cocktails

Cranberry-Orange Slush Cocktails

A refreshing alternative to rich holiday eggnog. Have it on hand for drop-in guests!

Ingredients

  • 1 (12 ounce) can frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
  • 1 (12 ounce) can frozen cranberry juice concentrate, thawed
  • 2 cups brandy
  • 1 (32 ounce) bottle cranberry juice cocktail
  • 2 (1 liter) bottles lemon-lime soda pop or sparkling water

Instructions

  1. Mix all ingredients except soda pop in nonmetal container. Divide among pint containers.
  2. Cover and freeze at least 8 hours until slushy.
  3. For each serving, mix equal amounts of slush mixture and soda pop in glass.

Yield: 30 servings (about 2/3 cup each)

Special Touch: Float a few cranberry-filled ice cubes in each glass of this fruity slush. To make cubes, place a couple of cranberries in each compartment of an ice-cube tray. Fill with a mixture of equal parts cranberry juice cocktail and water. Once frozen, use these "cranberry cubes" to freshen up this slush or other fruit-flavored drinks.

The slush freezes most quickly in 1-pint containers and can be used directly from the freezer. You can freeze it in one large container for punch, but it will take 1 or 2 days to freeze until slushy.
