To make The Kitchn's fruit slushies, chop 1 1/2 to 2 cups of mixed fruit. Use any type of fruit that is desired. Pour the fruit into a blender, and add 1 cup of ice and 1/4 cup sparkling water as well as additional flavorings such as mint, lime, honey or ginger. Blend on high until smooth, and drink immediately.
For the raven slush, fill a blender halfway with ice. Add 2 ounces of acai-blueberry flavored vodka, juice from one lemon, 1/2 an ounce of agave nectar and 1/4 cup of frozen blueberries. Serve immediately.
To make the sake melon slush, combine 2 cups of ripe cantaloupe, 1 inch of finely chopped ginger, 1 ounce of lime juice, 1 ounce of honey and 2 ounces of sake in a blender. Blend for about 30 seconds, or until smooth. Pour the mixture into a 9-inch square metal pan, and place in the freezer. Once the mixture is frozen, scrape with a fork until fluffy. Serve immediately after scraping.Learn more about Beverages
