Frozen citrus lime summer slush made from Sun Drop!
  • 2 liters of Sun Drop
  • Special Equipment Required:
  • an ice cream maker or large freezer-proof container (see note)
  1. Place the 2 liter bottle in the freezer for about an hour. If you are using a counter top ice cream maker, place the freezer bowl in the freezer at least 2 hours prior to when you want to make and serve. We store ours in the freezer so it's always ready to go.
  2. Check it to see that the Sun Drop is chilling but not yet freezing. Icy bits in the beverage are okay but you want to be able to pour. This may take up to 2 hours. You want the soda to be REALLY cold.
  3. Pour half of the Sun Drop into the frozen freezer bowl for the ice cream maker. Put the bowl in the ice cream maker and turn it on. After about 20 minutes the mixture will be slushy and frozen and the machine will slow down.
  4. Serve immediately. (you can repeat these steps with the other half of the soda)
  5. Alternate Method: If you do not have an ice cream maker, pour the Sun Drop into a large pitcher or other freezer-safe container. Let it freeze almost entirely (at least 2 hours). Use a metal spoon to stir the freezing soda occasionally until the soda has frozen enough to reach slush consistency. Serve.
I used a Cuisinart Countertop Ice Cream Maker for my slush. It sits on the counter and the slush is ready in 20 minutes! I think any ice cream churn would work though, but the older style with the ice and salt will certainly take longer. If you do not have an ice cream churn, you can use a sturdy plastic pitcher or other freezer-safe container but the method will change. Refer to the instructions.
