Put on a big red smile. Now you can make your own version of the popular convenience store slush we know from the excruciating brain freeze that follows a big ol gulp. You must have a blender to make this clone of 7-Elevens Slurpee, and enough room to stick that blender into your freezer to get it nice and thick. This recipe gets close to the original with Kool-Aid mix and a little help from cherry extract, but you can make this drink with any flavor Kool-Aid mix if you decide to make some variations, don't worry about adding extract. This recipe makes enough to fill one of those giant-size 32-ounce cups you find at the convenience store. Now if we could just figure out how to make those funky spoon-straws.
2 cups cold club soda
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon plus 1/8 teaspoon cherry flavored unsweetened Kool-Aid mix
1/2 teaspoon cherry extract
2 1/2 cups crushed ice
1. Pour 1 cup of the club soda into a blender. Add the sugar, Kool-Aid mix, and cherry extract. Blend this until all of the sugar is dissolved.

2. Add the crushed ice and blend on high speed until the drink is a slushy, smooth consistency, with no remaining chunks of ice.

3. Add the remaining club soda and blend briefly until mixed. You may have to stop the blender and use a long spoon to stir up the contents.

4. If necessary, put the blender into your freezer for 1/2-hour. This will help thicken it up. After 1/2-hour remove blender from freezer and, again, blend briefly to mix.

Makes one 32-ounce drink (or two 16-ouncers).

Sooooo good!

Just like the real thing. Made it for my little bros, now they won't stop asking me to make it for them! Good thing its so quick and easy. But, I've always found 7 elevens slurpees a bit too runny for my liking. So I add a cup more of ice since my brothers don't have the patience for it to chill in the freezer ;)

Awesome! I used Cherry Crush instead of club soda and the Koolaid because it was lying around, but it was more or less perfect.

This brings back memories of my childhood. In Statesville where I live we had a 7-11 and a Pantry. Nickle candy and slurpees!

They just recently closed down all the 7/11s here in Boise and finding a Slurpee is near impossible. Thanks Todd I've impressed my friends and helped myself.

We couldn't find cherry extract so we used Lemon Extract - it turned out great.My grandson left it in the freezer a little too long but all OK, he said it was like an Italian Ice!

This is very good. I make it with my daughter. I liked it better with lemon lime koolaid and 1 tbs of lemon concentrate. So delicious. This is a keeper.

This is a big hit with my kids. Tastes just like the original, even without the cherry extract, which I could not find in my local market. I found that a 1 liter bottle of club soda is good for 2 batches of this great recipe!

This slurpee recipe was easy and tasted just like the original. My kids enjoy making their own slurpees and since we don't have a 7-11 near us anymore, we have the next best thing!

Great recipe if you do not live close to a 7-11.

I work at 7-11 what we use is a big box of syrup flavoring (called a bag-in-the box) and carbonated water. Also just so you know, they have a kids size "slurpee machine" for sale now. Most stores are sold out, but you might want to go online for it.

This is awsome but I used mystery kool-aid and instead of getting the red slurpee I got a blue slurpee.

Submitted on: 08/16/05
Tastes like the real thing! I didn't even have to put it in the freezer, it was already thick enough. Thanks again for another great recipe!

Awesome! This really tastes like the real thing! Great job! One thing you never want to do is to try and blend the ice first, it fries your blender's motor. Excellent recipe!!!!!!!!!! 5. :)

This i s great. I love icees and such. I didn't have any club soda on hand so I used flavored pop (orange crusy) and deleted the flavoring, but used the rest of the remaining ingredients the same. Wonderful.
