I first got this recipe from my cousin, Wilma. I think she made it for Aunt Thelma and Uncle Glen's 50th Wedding Anniversary celebration. Later it was submitted to one of the Karalee Ward BakeOff cookbooks by Jacci Timpson. It is very easy and very refreshing. When Charis got married, Craig wanted his mother's recipe for Lime Slush served at their wedding reception. It is very simlar to the one I had. It is very pretty (and tastes good too) if you add fresh raspberries to it.
1 6 oz Frozen limeade
11 Cups water
3 Cups sugar
2 Quarts lemon lime carbonated beverage.
Lime Slices for garnish
Combine ingredients, except carbonated drink. Stir until sugar dissolves. Freeze until solid. Two hours before serving remove from freezer. Thaw to soften. Mash with potato masher. One hour before serving add carbonated drink. Garnish with Lime slices (and/or fresh raspberries).
