From slushies to floats: Adult versions of nostalgic drinks

Remember your favorite childhood drink? Was it a float? A slushy? If so, your adulthood just got a little sweeter! Erin Edds, Co-Founder of Garden Party Botanical Hard Soda, shows us some nostalgic adult versions that just might make you feel like a kid all over again!

Garden Party Float

1 scoop of Ice Cream

1 oz liqueur of choice

6 oz Garden Party

Top with whipped cream and berries

Violet Frose (frozen Rose)

4 Cans of Garden Party Violet

1 bottle of dry Rose (or Mallow Run Rhubarb Wine)

Pour ingredients together in a large metal bowl and freeze for at least 4 hours

Use an ice cream scoop to portion out the slushy into serving bowls

Makes 8 servings

Garden Party Summer Jigglers

2 cans of Garden Party Ruby

Pinch of salt

4 packages of gelatin

2 cups wine, divided

1/2 cup raspberries

1/2 cup blueberries

½ cup of granulated sugar

Toss the fruit in granulated sugar and refrigerate. Heat wine until just about boiling. Add pinch of salt. Meanwhile, let the gelatin soak in 1 can of Garden Party for a few minutes. Stir wine into the Garden Party mixture until gelatin is dissolved. Add remaining Garden Party. Pour into 11 x 7 baking dish.

Refrigerate for 90 minutes and then gently add fruit to the top so it doesn’t completely sink. Refrigerate for an additional 4 hours.
