How to Make a Slush Puppie
Slush Puppy is a brand of crushed-ice beverage. Made in special machines, they are commonly found in gas stations and corner stores. Smaller machines can be purchased for home use, but variations of the branded drink can be made at home with the right ingredients and a few household items.
These refreshing, non-alcoholic drinks are perfect for a barbecue or children's party.
Fill a tall glass with crushed ice.
Add the juice of 1 whole lemon, 14.8ml. of grenadine and 2 to 3 tsp of raspberry syrup to the glass. Top up with soda water.
