Total: 9 Hours, 10 Minutes


1 (64-oz.) container pineapple juice
1 (12-oz.) can frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
1 (12-oz.) can frozen limeade concentrate, thawed
1 1/2 cups bourbon*
1/4 cup maraschino cherry juice
Garnish: maraschino cherries


1. Stir together first 4 ingredients and 1 cup water. Divide mixture into 2 (1-gal.) zip-top plastic freezer bags; seal and freeze 8 hours.

2. Remove from freezer, and let stand 1 hour or until softened and beginning to melt. Using hands, squeeze bags until mixture is slushy. Spoon 2 cups mixture into each serving glass. Top each with 2 tsp. cherry juice. (Do not stir.) Serve immediately. Garnish, if desired.

*Lemon lime soft drink may be substituted for bourbon.


When serving, don't stir. The cherry juice will drip down to the bottom of the glass, producing colorful layers.
