  3. Top off with Club Soda, and a slice of Lime

Frosty Adult Alternate

  1. Combine Cider mix, club soda, add a shot of tequila and ice in the blender; blend on high to slushie texture,
  2. Sit Back and Relax on the Patio and watch the sun go down…..

The Recipe above yields 6-8 servings

      The recipe reads a lot like the grog we used to make for squadron parties. No tequila, but lots of "Everclear." :-)))
