by Krista Ames

1 bottle BBQ sauce (any kind)
1 stick butter or margarine

3 lbs. hot dogs (cut up or cocktail sausages)

Vodka Slush
by Jennifer Daiker

1 – 6oz cherry jello gelation
2 – 12oz frozen orange juice
2 – 12oz frozen lemonade
64fl oz cranberry juice
4 cups of Vodka
Sprite or 7-Up (2 liters)

A mixing bowl
Storage space in your fridge and 48 hours preparation

Directions (Process takes 48 hours):
With your giant bowl (the ingredient sizes can be deceiving, this is a large portion) add your box of cherry jello, dissolving the mixture with two cups of hot water. Pour in six cups of cold water.
Add both the frozen orange juice and lemonade. It helps to have them thawed a few minutes before hand. Stir.
Once the mixture has been dissolved add four cups of cranberry juice cocktail.
Then add four cups of vodka (for virgin recipes just leave this portion out).
Freeze for 48 hours. Stir periodically (2-4 times a day).
The mixture will thicken and become the slush you’ll desire. Grab wine glasses, add two scoops of slush and fill Sprite to the top and enjoy!
