Are you lonely? Do you need a friend? I read between the lines and found this recipe in the book, How to Win Friends & Influence People. Okay, maybe not. But if Dale Carnegie knew about this recipe, he would have included it. Everywhere I take Rum Freeze, it’s a hit ~ wedding showers, holiday parties, my own backyard…you name it! A family member passed the recipe down to me many years ago and I have her to thank for the passel of people clamoring for a little Rum Freeze. Insert a cheesy rhyme:
Make this yourself and you will see,
However shallow it may be,
You will never again be short on love.
Note: You will need a very large container for mixing and storing! One recipe makes approx. 3-gallons. Making a half-batch at a time, mixing and then transferring to separate containers works or the lid of a cake transporter also makes a great bowl for this.
1 12 oz. can frozen lemonade
1 12 oz. can orange juice
4 c. water
1 16oz. can crushed pineapple (with juice)
1 32 oz. can unsweetened pineapple juice (non-frozen)
2 16 oz. containers frozen strawberries in syrup
1 2-liter bottle 7UP
1/5 (750 ml.) white rum
Stir or whisk the juices, berries and rum together. I defrost the berries a bit and then use a spoon to break them up while mixing. Add the 7UP last and stir all ingredients together. Transfer to containers for freezing. Freeze overnight, stirring once. Share or leave it in the freezer, stirring occasionally and sip when desired.
