Thank Heaven! Copycat Cherry 7-Eleven Slurpee Recipe!

What you'll need

  • 1 1/2 cups chilled club soda or water (club soda is more authentic-tasting)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. grenadine (or juice from a jar of maraschino cherries)
  • 1/2 tsp. cherry drink mix (I used Kool-Aid, with sugar)
  • 2 cups crushed ice (use a little more, if you like an icier Slurpee)

How to make it

  1. Put 1 cup water, plus grenadine, sugar and drink mix into blender and liquefy.
  2. Add ice and use blender's highest setting to blend to your preferred consistency. (Your drink will start to look like a Slurpee.)
  3. Stir in remaining 1/2 cup of club soda or water.
  4. Pour into glasses, add straws and enjoy! (Since this is a very sugary beverage, you might want to give kids their drinks in small paper cups!)
