Layered Lemonade – A Spiked Ombre Slushie Recipe

This post is sponsored by SheSpeaks, Inc. and the Simply Orange® Juice Company.

I’m so excited to host holiday parties this year, and I’ve got a new cocktail recipe I can’t wait to share with everyone. My Layered Lemonade Spiked Ombre Slushie is sure to be a hit with all your party-goers (and for the kids feel free to leave out the ‘spiked’ part). 

The best part of this recipe is that you can make it for a crowd. Simply double or triple the recipe listed below and you’ll have enough to share with as many guests as you need! An easy way to get what you need without worrying about spending too much is to stock up on supplies at Sam’s Club

I was able to get a two-pack of Simply Lemonade® for a great price, plus I stocked up on nuts for guests to snack on as well! I love the fresh taste of the Simply Lemonade®, and that it is all-natural and non-GMO.

This recipe is so simple that you’ll probably wonder why you’ve never tried it before. You simply make three slushie flavors and then layer them into a serving glass. Be ready to wow your guests with this one!

Creating Slushie Layers

Fill a blender with the mango, 2 oz of vodka, 1 cup lemonade, and 1 cup ice. Blend until smooth. 

Transfer the slushie layer into a separate dish, then allow to set up in the freezer for at least 30 minutes.

Repeat for the remaining layers, but substitute the strawberry for mango in the 2nd layer, and add no fruit to the blender for the last layer.

==> TIP: This can be made days ahead of time and pulled out whenever you are ready to have your party, just allow about 5-10 minutes for your layers to soften up a bit before beginning the next step.

While you are waiting for your mixture to solidify, you can start cutting lemons and strawberries that will be used for the garnish!

Create the Layered Ombre Effect

Once your slushie layers have had time to firm up a bit in the freezer, pull them out and begin layering. Your ‘ice’ mixture, aka, slushie, won’t be fully frozen solid but it will have firmed up enough that you can scoop it with an ice cream scoop.

Layer the mango slushie on the bottom of a clear glass, then add the strawberry, and finally the lemonade layer on top. Garnish with strawberries and lemon slices if desired.

Don’t forget to grab some Simply Lemonade® and Member’s Mark Mixed Nuts while you are at Sam’s Club, and enjoy your new favorite cocktail!
