Thirsty Thursday - Coke Slurpee

When I was a kid one of my favorite summer time treats was a coke slurpee. I remember riding my bike to the local seven eleven with my friends to get one and thoroughly enjoying each and every sip. As we got older I remember spiking the frosty treat with a little vodka to bring to the beach and not being detected by the fun police who were always patrolling us sunbathers for drinking in public. What I didn't realize back then was the amount of calories I was consuming in each little delicious sip. That however doesn't stop me from enjoying it from time to time. Since seven elevens aren't all too common where we live I thought I would whip up a version for my husband and myself. I followed this recipe and was pleasantly surprised how it instantly brought me back all those wonderfully nostalgic memories of being a kid in the summer on Long Island and how fitting it seemed for today's cocktail, because honestly is there anything more americana then coca-cola???

Happy Fourth of July everyone! What are you doing to celebrate???
