Cranberry Vodka Slushies Recipe Preparation in a Slushie Machine
Place the Cranberry juice, Vodka, orange juice and lime juice into the slushie machine.
Using the mix function, start by mixing all the ingredients, so all the liquids are thoroughly mixed together.
Place on the lid on the top of the slush machine and switch to the ‘SLUSH’ mode on the side of the Nostalgia RSM650 Slushie Machine or any other slushie machine that you might be using.
Give the machine 3-5 minutes for it to process the liquid and turn it into a slush – feel free to watch as that happens, as it looks very fascinating!
Make sure to serve the drinks to your guest immediately, remember slushies are half ice – so they’ll melt soon.

Top with some lemon lime soda – I really like the flavor combination when adding it!

Cranberry Vodka Slush Preparation in a Blender
Start by combining all the ingredients in the blender. The cranberry juice, vodka, orange juice, and lime juice.
Put on the lid of the blender and mix for about 30 seconds until all the liquids are mixed thoroughly.
Add the ice cubes to the blender and then blend periodically using the “PULSE” function on your blender. This will ensure that we get that perfect slushy texture with half liquid and half ice.
Stop when you get your desired texture and consistency and serve immediately. Optionally, top up with Lemon Lime Soda – for me it’s one of my favorite combinations!
