Tropical Punch
1 (46 fluid ounce) can pineapple juice
1 (6 ounce) can frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
2 liters lemon-lime flavored soda

Combine pineapple juice and orange juice concentrate into a gallon container. Shake to mix and slowly pour in the lemon-lime soda. You may need to let the fizz settle and then return to pouring. This will fill up the gallon. Freeze overnight. Let it start to thaw 2 hours before serving. Serve slushy.

Raspberry Lemonade
12 oz can frozen raspberry lemonade concentrate
3 cups water
3/4 teaspoon lime juice
12 oz. lemon-lime flavored soda
1 cup crushed ice

Combine raspberry lemonade concentrate, water and lime juice. Mix well. Stir in lemon-lime soda and crushed ice.

Berry Citrus Slushie

6 oz can frozen orange juice concentrate
6 fluid ounces water
1 cup fresh blueberries
4 cubes ice

Combine orange juice concentrate, water, blueberries and ice cubes in a blender and blend until slushy.

Chocolate Egg Cream
**These make me think of my grandparents ๐Ÿ™‚ **

1/4 cup chocolate syrup
1/2 cup cold milk
2/3 cup carbonated water, chilled

Pour chocolate syrup into large, chilled glass. Gently stir in milk. Holding the carbonated water about 5 inches from the top of the glass, slowly pour into the glass until a thick foam comes to the top of the glass. Using a long swizzle stick, stir the mixture once quickly, make sure the foam does not bubble over the glass. Serve immediately.
