Capture summer in a glass with this low-fat, vodka-spiked strawberry-rhubarb slush. Serve it easily glass by glass, or all at once as a cool party punch.

Ingredients

1
bag (16 ounces) frozen rhubarb or 3 cups chopped fresh rhubarb
1
cup sugar
2
packages (10 ounces each) frozen sweetened strawberries, slightly thawed
1 1/2
cups vodka
1
can (12 ounces) lemon-lime carbonated beverage
1
bottle (2 liters) lemon-lime carbonated beverage, chilled
Sliced fresh strawberries, if desired

Directions

  • 1 Heat rhubarb and sugar to boiling in 3-quart saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Cook 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until rhubarb is very tender. Stir in strawberries.
  • 2 Spoon half of the strawberry mixture into blender. Cover and blend on high speed until smooth. Pour into large nonmetal container. Cover and blend remaining strawberry mixture; add to container. Stir in vodka and 12-ounce can of carbonated beverage. Freeze at least 8 hours until frozen and slushy.
  • 3 For each serving, stir together 1/2 cup frozen mixture and 1/2 cup chilled carbonated beverage in tall glass until slushy. Garnish with strawberry slices.

Expert Tips

This whole recipe can be served as a slushy punch. Spoon the slush mixture into a large punch bowl, then stir in the carbonated beverage. This is handy if you are serving a large number of people all at once.

This is a perfect do-ahead recipe because it makes a big batch and can be kept in the freezer for several weeks. Scoop out just the amount you need at one time.

Slush beverage recipes rely on the alcohol to keep them from freezing solid. Because they remain slushy in the freezer, portions can be scooped out at a moment's notice.
