Hi everyone! I’m Sara from Bitz & Giggles and I am beyond excited to be part of The Silly Girl’s Life’s Team! I’m one of Dana’s newest contributors and will be posting yummy recipes every 3rd Monday of each month. Today I’m sharing a super fun and refreshing slush recipe, perfect for summer parties and BBQs!

Ever since I was a little girl I was attracted to blue drinks. The color just appeals to me and it screams refreshment. I remember a few years ago when I was traveling with one of our executives for work – during one of our layovers at the airport we decided to pass some time by going to one of the bars for a drink. He ordered a margarita; so I did the same. Mine was blue and slushy – his was “normal” and on the rocks. He said, “What in the world did you order?” I just smiled. He just shook his head. I looked at him and said, “Depending on how long we’re going to be here, I just may have another.”

The Blue Raspberry Lemonade Jello Slush I’m sharing today isn’t alcoholic in nature. I created it with my kids in mind and, well, I suppose to appeal to my inner child as well.

The blue color makes me happy and reminds me of summer. The Jello is what gets the kids excited. It’s a win-win and actually a pretty versatile recipe.

You can add some of the slush to a glass with some lemon-lime soda or lemonade, and drink it. . .

OR. . .you could grab a knife.  . .

Hollow out the inside of a lemon. . .

And fill THAT with the slush. If you want to drink the slush out of the lemon, add a little lemon-lime soda. If you want to spoon it out of the lemon like Italian Ice, do nothing! Garnish with a raspberry or two, grab a spoon and you’re golden!

I will admit, the slush and lemon-lime soda combo is my favorite.

Now, if you’ve just had a really long week, go ahead and turn this mocktail into a cocktail by adding a little vodka. Suddenly, it’s transformed into a slushy Electric Blue Vodka Lemonade. Refreshing? You be the judge. I’ll just be waiting over here. . .to be awarded my “blue” ribbon after you finish your drink. You’re going to LOVE this and so will your kids (the mocktail version, of course)! Cheers!
