HOLIDAY CHEER!!!

I made the following drink for Thanksgiving and it was a huge hit!! I wasn't sure if the Brandy in it would taste too Brandy-ish, but you could barely tell there was any in it. Dangerous? Not really. The recipe calls for 2 cups, but as you'll see after you dilute each glassful with the soda, you have 30+ servings, so no one drink is going to make anyone table dance! Do drink responsibly, and have a designated reindeer wrangler if someone over indulges!! Of course you could opt for a liquor free version, that's also very good, but you won't get the same slushie effect, so don't freeze it or you'll have nice juicy ice cubes!
It's pretty, it's festive and it has that great holiday combination of Cranberry and Orange flavors. I 'xpect we'll have it again during the upcoming holidays at some point. Maybe our Open House. Yeah, that's with our neighbors and they can just walk home! No crawling!! So grab a punch bowl, some pretty stemware and have some holiday cheer. This round's on me!!

CRANBERRY-ORANGE SLUSH COCKTAIL

1 can (12 ounces) frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
1 can (12 ounces) frozen cranberry juice concentrate, thawed
2 cups brandy
1 bottle (32 ounces) cranberry juice cocktail *(I used Cran-Raspberry..Yum!)
2 bottles (1 liter each) lemon-lime soda pop or sparkling water *(I used 7-UP)
1.Mix all ingredients except soda pop in nonmetal container. Divide among pint containers. Cover and freeze at least 8 hours until slushy.
2. Pour equal parts juice mixture and soda into each glass and serve immediately.
TIP: I have also used a Wildberry blend frozen concentrate in place of the cranberry and feel certain you could use any fruit juice combination with the orange juice you'd like. I know the berry flavors work really well. And you know that Vodka would be great, too. So many versions for this one! Pick one and Enjoy!!
