Recently 7-Eleven celebrated its 45th birthday with free Slurpees. Those Slurpees were always so refreshing on a hot day, albeit just a little sweet for my taste.

I decided to make my own Slurpee in honor of this classic drink. An adult Slurpee using frozen blueberries and tea. And spiked with just enough booze.

This isn’t quite the slushy texture of the real Slurpees, but it doesn’t need to be. It’s cold, refreshing and blueberry-riffic! A perfect Fat and Happy summer cocktail.

Boozy Blueberry Tea Slurpee

Per drink:

  • 1 cup of frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup of chilled black tea
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice
  • 1 ounce of Acai liqueur or vodka

Add all the ingredients to a blender, blend on high until it’s all combined and the blueberries are completely chopped up, about 30 seconds.

Pour into chilled glass and enjoy immediately.

Fat and Happy Food Blog Tips and Techniques:  I buy organic, fresh blueberries whenever they are on sale and freeze them. Simply clean, lightly dry on a paper towel and then place in a ziplock bag. Lay the bag flat in the freezer until frozen.
