Apple Cider Slushy With Alcohol

Frozen Apple Cider Drink

Took a trip out to the apple farm this past weekend to gather up a dozen apple cider donuts for the family. Aside from fresh cider beverage and pumpkin pie, cider donuts define fall in our household and we make it a point to drive out for the dozen or so donut fix every October. The other fun item we enjoy every fall at this farm and bakery is the delicious apple cider slushie. The ingredients to this Indian summer cool treat don’t get any simpler. Mix a blender full of ice and a healthy dose of farm fresh apple cider. Blend the frozen treat until the ice cubes are broken down into a slushy or ICEE consistency. Serve in glasses with straws. I will get about three to four servings per blender full.

Cider Slushies with a Kick

Okay. Mom and Dad enjoying the cool cider slushy treat think……………”hmm, how would this go with a little splash of alcohol”. That is not a bad idea. Here is the recipe.

1. Fill Blender With Ice.

2. Pour about half of blender container with apple cider.

3. Pour in two shots of vodka.

4. Pour in one shot of butterscotch schnapps.

5. Blend until slushy consistency.

6. Yields about four medium size cups of apple slushies.

The quantity of vodka and schnapps is a personal preference. Some would consider my ratio strong and others may find it rather weak. Experiment to your own satisfaction.
