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. It was this little shack in the middle of a parking lot, but dang was it good! What can I say I love slushy’s!
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 slushy or even a Tequila sunrise slushy, regardless it’s a fun way to make a drink! I would however suggest buying an ice shaver if you are having people over because your forearm will hate you if you are mashing ice with a mallet all night.
Of course any good drink starts with a great spirit, which is exactly what I used in this, Lunazul Tequila! It’s incredibly smooth to sip by itself over ice and has wonderful aromas of tropical and apple while leaving you with a tasty citrusy and peppery after taste.
When making this drink I mixed together some Lunazul Tequila, pineapple juice and grenadine. Seriously easy as that. Next I put it in the freezer so it could get as cold as possible so that you can try and preserve the slushy ice as long as possible after you pour this over it. Next step is to mash the ice. I did it by putting some ice cubes into a plastic bag and crushing them up with a mallet. It’s easy but not something y
ou want to do if you are having a party.
To finish it off I added a fun umbrella, slice of pineapple, a cherry and a straw for slurpping! So tasty and so awesome to drink this summer! Be sure to follow my good friends over at Lunazul on their social channels below:
