Cherry Slush Recipe

Since only four simple ingredients are needed to make this Cherry slush, what are you waiting for? The flavor is super refreshing – and there is no denying that it’s crave-worthly.

Just 5 minutes is needed to have everyone sipping away on their cup of goodness. And in my opinion, it doesn’t get any better than that.

How do I keep iced drinks cold longer?

Nothing is as refreshing as an ice-cold drink when you’re out on a hot summer day. Unfortunately, that relief is often short-lived as the sun beats down on your cup, quickly melting the ice and leaving you with a lukewarm beverage.

Luckily, there are a few tricks to extend the life of your iced drinks. First, start with a cold drink and add ice rather than vice versa. This way, the drink won’t have to work as hard to cool down the ice.

Next, use larger ice cubes instead of small ones. Larger cubes will melt more slowly and keep your drink colder for longer.

Finally, try wrapping your cup in a damp paper towel and placing it in the freezer for a few minutes before adding your drink.

This will help the cup stay colder and prevent rapid melting. So enjoy your cold drink, and beat the heat with these simple tips.
