This Pineapple Cherry Tequila Slushy encompasses everything I love about summer. When I was young we used to wait forever in line to get a huge juice loaded slushy from our favorite spot in town, Do Yourself a Flavor.

To me this drink is perfect at the backyard bbq or while entertaining some guests on a warm summer evening. It’s fun, tasty and extremely versatile. I mean you could make a margarita slushy, a Texas Two-Step…

This drink is the perfect cocktail to sip on no matter what the occasion is as it’s got a perfect balance of sweet, sour and spiciness.
