Black and Bloopy

I never would have thought that a cocktail could look like a bruise, but tonight I have succeeded in creating one.  I don’t know if this is an accomplishment to be proud of, but here it is… the Black and Bloopy!

I bought this lovely little tub of Electric Lemonade Slush Mix from Tastefully Simple.  Add water, vodka (I used Three Olives Loopy) and then stick it in the freezer.  I did this a few weeks ago, and then promptly forgot about it.  Then today happened, and today was one of those days that needs to end with a cocktail.  After I hacked out enough to fill my glass I gave it a taste.  Good but VERY sour!  So I decided to add some grenadine for a little extra sweetness.  The end result was a very good, although oddly colored alcoholic slushy.

This one is pretty easy!  Buy some of this slush mix from your area Tastefully Simple rep (support your local business while you booze!), add water and the vodka of your choice per the instructions on the container and freeze!  When serving, if you want your drink to look like its been in a bar fight drizzle in some grenadine.

      1. That it is! I must admit, I’ve tried making a few things with it and I think it has that cheap vodka burn but it was totally masked by the Electric Lemonade mix.

      2. This was the first 3 Olives I’ve tried – I usually get Pinnacle for all the wacky flavors. Maybe it’s just the Loopy that’s like that. I just saw they came out with a S’Mores flavor. I think I might have to give that one a shot!
