Vodka cranberry slush

Looking for a fun cocktail for holiday entertaining?  Let me introduce to you the Vodka-Cranberry Slush.  This is an easy make-ahead mix that everyone will enjoy. 

Start with a large can of frozen orange juice concentrate and lemonade concentrate.  Let them thaw and mix together.  Add one cup of very strong tea (I used green tea, but black tea would be fine as well).

Add 3.5 cups of water, followed by 3.5 cups of your favorite vodka.  Mix together and let freeze at least 24 hours.  It will sit quite happily in the freezer for much longer, though, so feel free to make it a week or two before you actually need it.

When you're ready to serve, scoop some frozen vodka mixture into a glass and top with cranberry juice.  An ice cream scoop works just fine for this.  This amount of slush is good for twenty drinks (each with 1.5 scoops of slush in the glass). 

You'll want to have straws or stirring sticks handy to guests can mix the slush with the cranberry juice. Enjoy!
