Introducing the first ever drink recipe on my blog….Green Tea Vodka Slush! Woo-hoo!
I can see my siblings now. What? You are calling it GREEN TEA Vodka Slush? Yup. It’s a little thing called SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and using only two words in the title isn’t optimal. So there is that. Glad we got that out of the way.
And hey, there is green tea in this drink so it’s good for ya. 🙂
I should have called this slush the Reding Family Holiday Slush. Because that’s basically what it is. For as long as I can remember, we drank vodka slush at our family gatherings. And we still do. Holidays, graduations, birthdays…meant vodka slush. Mom almost always had a “bucket” of slush in her freezer for when we gathered. And I’m pretty sure I drank it in high school WITH my family. Shhh. I won’t tell if you don’t. 🙂
The recipe basically takes 15 – 20 minutes to whip up. Throw it all in a large container and put it in the freezer. It will take around 24 hours to completely freeze.
Here’s my two biggest tips for vodka slush. 1) Use a good vodka (like Absolute) or you’ll get a headache, and 2) Let the slush sit out for 15 minutes to make it easier to serve.
Oh, one more. Make a double batch. 🙂
AND make some of my snacks to go with.
