Amaretto Slush

My mom serves these at holiday gatherings, usually when we get together to wrap gifts before Christmas. That’s probably why we all get along so well during those special times, and you can always tell which gifts were wrapped later in the evening.

I made up a batch for Monkey’s party, and there wasn’t a drop left once everyone had departed. They are equally perfect for a sweltering summer day and a chilly winter evening.

A word of caution though – you really can’t tell there’s alcohol in here. Go easy!

Amaretto Slush

1 large can Dole pineapple juice

2 cans frozen Minute Maid pink lemonade

1/3 cup lemon juice

3 cups Disaronno Amaretto

1 2-liter bottle clear soda (Sprite, Ginger Ale)

Mix pineapple juice, pink lemonade, lemon juice and Amaretto in a large pitcher. Pour into a container suitable for freezing. Cover well. Freeze for 24 hours. Scoop slush into a cup, pour soda over the top and enjoy!

*You can substitute 1 tbsp almond extract if you’d like to keep these alcohol free.
