Today is July 11th, aka 7-11. Every year on this date the convenience store chain 7-11 gives out free Slurpees. I decided to take one of their Slurpees and doctor it up.
As a kid my mom used to doctor things up. She'd add some oregano and grated parmesan cheese to a can of Campbell's soup- voila gourmet. Or chopped apples and a dash of cinnamon to Quaker Instant Oatmeal. We were fancy like that.
So here's my doctored up version of a Pina Colada Slurpee.
King Aloha Slurpee
1 Large Pina Colada Slurpee
1 3 oz box of Pineapple Jell-o
1 envelop of Knox gelatine
1/2 cup of Bacardi Coconut rum
I made the Gelatin shots in the standard way, but for extra fun I set them in these pineapple ice cube trays. Using a blender, I pulsed the shots, Slurpee, and extra ice cubes on and off for ten seconds. The Slurpee came out tasting like a bubble tea with kick.

It may be too late to get your free Slurpee but you can always doctor it up. Some liquor a day keeps the doctor away. Well, actually, it probably keeps you away from the doctor because your a bit befuddled and sleeping it off.
|Uh-oh. Here comes the blender causing delicious trouble!|
