Summer Slush

Whenever I see 'slush' recipes that call for gin I instantly feel like it's 1972 and a crowd is gathered on the patio, the women in brightly colored, flowered patterned short mini dresses, the guys in long baby blue polyester pants and wide sideburns. Something about 'slushes' just takes me back to the 70's even though, of course, I was just a baby then!

I love everything retro though, and when I saw this recipe I thought; wouldn't it be cool to throw a retro party this summer and serve this!?
