Over 35 years ago, a group of nine hospital co-workers began having regular dinner gatherings every one to two months. One of these co-workers served this slush during those early years, and it’s been on my “must make” list ever since. Our dinner group is still going strong today.

Rhubarb Slush
  • 12 cups rhubarb, sliced
  • 9 cups water
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 small box raspberry gelatin, sugar free
  • 6 oz. lemonade, frozen concentrate
  • 1 ½ cups vodka
  • lemon-lime soft drink

Cook first three ingredients for 30 minutes or until the rhubarb is cooked. Run through a colander, saving the juices. Add gelatin, lemonade and vodka to the rhubarb juice. Freeze overnight. Mix half slush with half diet or regular lemon-lime soft drink.

Vicky Todnem-Miller of Plymouth is described as the neighborhood go to for all food- and drink-related questions.
