Well ..for those of you who live in the midwest and east ..you have that handy little place called "Sonic" just about on every corner it seems.
Those are a scarce commodity where I live and the closest one just as of 6 months ago is a 20 mile round trip ..and well that can get a little costly with the price of Gas.
I love the Sonic Slushes ...and when we lived in MO ..well our local sonic was just a hop, jump and skip away and when I wanted a slush ..it was just a minute down the road and a nice drive to boot ...cause the scenery was pretty . Here my scenery is dirt ..weeds and more dirt ..not exactly the type of landscape that tugs at your heart to take a drive in ..LOL !
Well at sonic my favorite Slush is Grape/Cherry mix ..ever since I was a wee one ..that's what I have loved and unlike candy "Nerds" and Sweettarts" I havent stopped liking them.
So to get my Refreshing fix ..I had to come up with second best ..make it at home ..But now on reflecting on my concoction ..I think it might be rated better Health wise.
My Favorite Grape Juice is Newmans ..I always buy the double pack at Costco ..the Grape isn't all watered down like the "Other" brands ..Newmans has got a nice strong Grape flavor.
So I poured a glass of grape juice ..( a glass glass that's the best) over a full glass of ice about 2 inches from the top ..then I added in some Marachino Cherry juice ..just about a tablespoon a little more maybe and stirred it in ..then put the glass in the freezer for about 5 minutes just until the top starts to ice over ..mmmm then lightly tap a hole in the thin layer of ice and beging drinking ..
Oh ...positively yummy !! It's my Grape/cherry Refresher... ! Try one sometime ..you'll be hooked and guess what its good for your health ..and your heart !!
