Sensational Slush

Prep: 25 min + freezing
Colorful and refreshing, this sweet-tart slush is a favorite.  It is recommended to freeze the mix in 2- and 4- cup containers so it can be served in small portions.

1/2 c sugar
1 pkg (3 oz) strawberry gelatin
2 c boling water
2 c sliced fresh strawberries
1 c unsweetened pineapple juice
1 can (12 oz) frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
1 can (12 oz) frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
2 c cold water
2 L lemon-lime soda, chilled

In a large bowl, dissolve sugar and gelatin in boiling water.  Place the strawberries and pineapple juice in a blender; cover and process until smooth.  Add to gelatin mix.  Stir in concentrates and cold water.  Cover and freeze for 8 hours/overnight.  Remove from freezer 45 min before serving.  For each serving, combine 1/2 c slush with 1/2 cup soda; stir well.  20 servings.

*I've wanted to try this recipe for a long time and when we decided to have a summer party, it was a perfect opportunity.  It was very sweet and tangy.  I think that it is better at a 1:2 ratio, 1/2 c slush with 1 cup soda.  I froze the slush in ice cube trays and in plastic cups for easy serving.
