Sparkling Orange Slush - Butter With A Side of Bread

Party season is upon us! There’s something special about this slush recipe that just makes everyone gravitate toward it at the buffet table. It’s easy to make and both kids and adults love it. The recipe came from my husband’s grandmother who used to serve it at weddings. Yep- it’s that good!

I used Sunkist® TEN™ Soda because I love the bright orange flavor, but 7-Up TEN® would work as well. Both varieties have only ten calories with full flavor. You can find both at Target on the soft drink aisle. Don’t forget to download their Cartwheel app and use the 30% off 12 pack of Canada Dry TEN®, 7UP TEN®, A&W TEN®, Sunkist® TEN™ Soda coupon or the 10% off 8 pack 12oz bottles of Canada Dry®, 7UP®, A&W®, Sunkist® Soda and more coupon!

Now, on to the slush recipe!

Sparkling Orange Slush

yields 10-12 servings*

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup ice water
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup Rose’s® lemon juice
  • 2 tsp almond extract
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 6 cans Sunkist® TEN™ Soda or 1 2-liter Sunkist® TEN™ Soda
  • orange slices, for garnish if desired

Combine 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar in a medium sized glass bowl or measuring cup. Microwave on high for 2-4 minutes, until mixture begins to boil. Whisk to dissolve sugar and add 1 cup of ice water, orange juice and lemon juice. Stir until ice cubes are melted. Add in extracts. Transfer mixture to a gallon sized freezer bag and freeze for at least 3-4 hours, preferably overnight. Make sure to lay the bag flat so that the mixture freezes in a uniform shape!

Right before serving, remove the bag of frozen slush from the freezer and gently break up into smaller pieces. The mixture doesn’t freeze solid, so it’s easy to gently press and fold the bag with your hands to break the mixture up.

Pour slush into a medium sized punch bowl. Pour Sunkist® TEN™ Soda  on top of the slush mixture, gently piercing larger pieces with a fork to break apart. Give it a light stir and serve, topped with sliced oranges.

*Recipe can be doubled or tripled to use with a large punch bowl. Just freeze the slush separately so that it’s easier to break apart.

  1. It looks good, and I look forward to trying it out. I have one question though, since the soda options in your ingredients list were both of the TEN variety. Would it also work with the full-on regular soda (like regular Sunkist)? Or are there ingredients specific to the TEN line that make it work and are absent from the full-calorie soda (or, for that matter, a full-on diet soda)?
    • The recipe is very versatile- regular Sunkist would work perfectly- as would regular 7-Up. (Or even the diet varieties!) I just like the TEN varieties- if you haven't tried them, you should!! (Less calories too!)
  2. Ice Cubes ? How many ? it doesn't say anything in the ingredients list about ice cubes, yet it says to stir until ice cubes are melted !
