Captain America Slushy Cocktail
Recipe Type: Drinks
Serves: 1
A red, white and blue layered slushy cocktail - perfect for Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Superhero themed parties
Before starting you will need:
  • 600ml sprite, 500ml of it frozen into ice cubes
To serve:
  • 1 tbsp sugar crystals
  • 3 drops blue food colouring
  • ¼ tsp simple syrup (or other sticky liquid, such as maple syrup or honey - this may add a flavour if mixed with drink)
White Layer:
  • 25ml/1oz Jameson (Irish Whiskey)
  • 1 cup frozen sprite cubes
Blue Layer:
  • 50ml/2oz Blue curacao
  • 1 cup frozen sprite cubes
Red Layer:
  • 150g frozen strawberries (if freezing fresh strawberries, the weight is after hulling)
  • 100ml sprite, not frozen
To make the blue sugar crystals:
  1. Put the crystals and blue food dye in a zip lock bag, seal and shake for about 30 seconds. Pour onto a shallow bowl or plate.
  2. Rub some sugar syrup around the rim of the glass using kitchen towel, then dip in the sugar, rotating to get all sides covered.
To make each layer:
  1. Put the ingredients for the layer you are making into your blender, pulse until you have a slushy consistency.
  2. Pour or spoon into glass, one colour at a time to create your three layers. You can, of course, put the layers in any order your like.
  3. Rinse blender between each layer, so you don't end up mixing colours.
  4. Serve immediately with a festive straw.
