Notes

Note - may keep any extra in fridge up to 3 days.  The ice will melt and no longer be a slushie, but will still taste delicious poured over ice!
In the market for a blender to make this recipe?
Here's the KitchenAid Blender that I have and recommend (and comes in all sort of cool colors!)
Vitamix is the creme de la creme of blenders ice and frozen foods with ease, and a great idea if you make this type of thing regularly.  (I'm still trying to save up!!)
