  • Sonic's new Cranberry slush---need clone ASAP!!!
    I'll go broke getting these daily! Long story, but I now have a tongue ulceration that keeps returning & keeping it really cold helps the pain.
    I'm going to experiment with cran-raspberry juice & ice in my blender, but would LOVE to know how to make it that slushy-slurpee texture.

    Thanks, Cali

    Cali,

    I know this isnt what youre looking for, but maybe the technique they use here will help you figure it out.

    Good Luck, and I hope your mouth gets better. Have you tried Perodyne (by colgate) rinse? It with the toothpastes and mouthwashes and helps those mouth sores clear up a LOT faster.

    Cherry Slurpee

    Here's a clone recipe for that popular convenience store slush that most everyone knows from the excruciating brain freeze that follows a big gulp. You must have a blender to make this clone of 7-11's Slurpee, and enough room to stick that blender into your freezer to get it nice and thick. This recipe gets close to the original with Kool-Aid mix and a little help from cherry extract, but you can make this drink with any flavor Kool-Aid mix (if you decide to make some variations, don't even worry about extract). This recipe makes enough to fill one of those giant-size 32-ounce cups you find at the convenience store. Now if we could just figure out how to make those funky spoon-straws.

    2 cups cold club soda
    1/2 cup sugar
    1/4 teaspoon plus 1/8 teaspoon Cherry flavored unsweetened Kool-Aid Mix
    1/2 teaspoon cherry extract
    2 1/2 cups crushed ice

    1. Pour 1 cup of the club soda into a blender. Add the sugar, Kool-Aid mix, and cherry extract. Blend this until all of the sugar is dissolved.
    2. Add the crushed ice and blend on high speed until the drink is a slushy, smooth consistency, with no remaining chunks of ice.
    3. Add the remaining club soda and blend briefly until mixed. You may have to stop the blender and use a long spoon to stir up the contents.
    4. If necessary, put the blender into your freezer for 1/2 hour. This will thicken it. After 1/2 hour remove blender from freezer and, again, blend briefly to mix.

    Cali - this is so weird. I just posted 2 Sonic Limeade recipes on the board. Neither is for cranberry limeade but you can see it's basically the same recipe.

    Sonic Drive-In Cherry Limeade

    12 oz. cold Sprite (1 can)
    3 lime wedges (1/8 of lime each)
    1/4 cup cherry juice (Libby's Juicy Juice is best)

    Sonic Drive-In Strawberry Limeade

    12 oz. cold Sprite
    3 lime wedges (1/8 of lime each)
    2 tablespoonf frozen sweetened sliced strawberries, thawed

    Fill a 16-oz. glass 2/3 full with ice. Pour sprite over the ice. Add the juice of 3 lime wedges. Add the flavor (1/4 cup cherry juice or 2 T. sliced strawberries). Serve with a straw.

    I think you could use a blender to crunch up the ice and part of the Sprite. Then combine the remaining ingredients. Good luck, CJ

    This recipe explains how to get a "slurpee" consistency in the drink.

    7-Eleven Cherry Slurpee

    2 cups cold club soda
    1/2 cup sugar
    1/4 tsp. + 1/8 tsp. Kool-aid cherry-flavored unsweetened drink mix
    1/2 tsp. cherry extract
    2 1/2 cups crushed ice *

    Pour 1 cup of the club soda into a blender. Add the sguar, Kool-Aid mix and cherry extract. Blend this until all of the sguar is dissolved.

    Add the crushed ice and blend on high speed until the drink is a slushy, smooth consistency, with no remaining chunks of ice.

    Add the remaining club soda and blend briefly until mixed. You may have to stop the blender and use a long spoon to stir up the contents.

    If necessary, put the blender into your freezer for 1/2 hour. This will help thicken it up. after 1/2 hour remove blender from freezer and, again, blend briefly to mix.

    Makes 1 32-oz. drink (or 2 16 ouncers)

    *I have put ice in a cup towel and used a mallet or hammer to crush it.

    Cali, I don't know if the ulceration is like a canker sore but if it is I read a tip somewhere that really works. Swish a dose of malox in your mouth for a minute then spit out. Do it a few times a day. The tip said do not do it use more than the daily recommended dosage even though you will be spitting it out. It really worked wonders for me. BTW I bought the walmart brand because I was skeptical and did not want to waste too much money.

    Hope your mouth feels better soon.

    Sonic® Drive-InStrawberry Cheesecake Shakeby Todd Wilbur


    The cool thing about this week's Top Secret Recipe is that many of the ingredients come in a kit designed for making strawberry cheesecake. Find Jell-O No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake mix near the puddings in your supermarket and you have half of the ingredients locked up. Inside the box are three separate packets: Strawberries, the cheesecake mix for flavoring and graham crackers crumbs to sprinkle over the top of your shake as they do at the restaurant. To complete your clone you'll just need some vanilla ice cream, a cup of milk and a little whipped cream. The recipe below makes two regular size shakes, but you can make another two drinks with the remaining strawberries that come in the mix. If you thaw out some frozen, sweetened strawberries (those syrupy strawberries that come in a box), you can make as many as 8 more shake clones with the remaining cheesecake mix powder and graham cracker crumbs.

    1 cup milk
    3 cups vanilla ice cream
    1/2 cup strawberries and syrup (from Jello-O No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake kit)
    3 tablespoons cheesecake mix powder (from cheesecake kit)
    On top canned whipped cream 2 teaspoons graham cracker crumbs (from cheesecake kit)

    1. Combine milk, ice cream, strawberries and cheesecake mix in a blender and mix on high speed until smooth. Pour into two 12-ounce glasses.

    2. Garnish the top with a squirt of whipped cream from a can and about a teaspoon of graham cracker crumbs from the cheesecake kit. Serve each shake with a straw.

    Sonic Drive-In® Cream Pie Shakes

    by Todd Wilbur

    If you place all the cups that Sonic uses in a year for these shakes
    and other beverages end to end, they would circle the earth twice. That's
    including the detour the cups would make to avoid passing through downtown Detroit.
    These awesome shakes are unique for the graham cracker crumbs in the
    mix that make them taste as if you're slurping up a creamy chilled pie.
    You can either crumble up your own graham crackers or use the already
    ground stuff in a box that's used most often to make graham cracker pie
    crusts.

    Banana
    If you love banana cream pies, you'll love this shake. Just be sure
    your banana is ripe.

    2 1/2 cups vanilla ice cream
    1/2 cup milk
    1 ripe banana
    2 tablespoons graham cracker crumbs

    Garnish
    whipped cream
    graham cracker crumbs


    1. Put all ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth. You may have to
    stop the blender and stir the shake with a spoon so that it blends evenly.

    2. Pour the shake into 2 12-ounce glasses. Garnish each serving with a
    dollop of whipped cream, and shake some graham cracker crumbs over the
    top. Serve with a straw.

    Makes 2 12-ounce shakes

    Chocolate
    Simply add a little chocolate syrup to the shake if chocolate is your
    thing. This recipe makes two medium shakes or one big one for real
    chocoholics.

    2 1/2 cups vanilla ice cream
    1/2 cup milk
    2 tablespoons Hershey's chocolate syrup
    2 tablespoons graham cracker crumbs
    Garnish
    whipped cream
    graham cracker crumbs

    1. Put all ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth. You may have to stop the blender and stir the shake with a spoon so that it blends evenly.
    2. Pour the shake into 2 12-ounce glasses. Garnish each serving with a
    dollop of whipped cream, and shake some graham cracker crumbs over the
    top. Serve with a straw.

    Makes 2 12-ounce shakes

    Coconut
    This shake uses cream of coconut for flavoring. This is the canned
    ingredient used most often to make pin

    Sonic Drive-In® Peanut Butter Shake

    by Todd Wilbur

    Here are a couple of easy-to-make milk clones from Sonic's fountain menu in response to many requests we've had here at TSR.
    The straight peanut butter version is crazy good if you like peanut butter, and when you add a little fudge to the recipe for the second clone, you've got what tastes like a drinkable Reese's peanut butter cup.

    Ingredients:

    Peanut Butter Shake
    2 1/4 cups vanilla ice cream
    1/4 cup whole milk
    2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter

    Peanut Butter Fudge Shake
    2 1/4 cups vanilla ice cream
    1/4 cup whole milk
    2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
    1 tablespoon chocolate fudge

    Instructions:

    1. Combine the ingredients for the shake of your choice in a blender. Be sure to pack the ice cream into the measuring cup when you measure it out. Blend everything on medium speed until smooth.

    2. Pour into a 16-ounce glass, add a straw and serve it up. Pop the shake into the freezer for 10 to 15 minutes to firm it up, if necessary.

    Makes 1 serving.

    Sonic® Cherry Limeade

    by Todd Wilbur



    Here's the signature drink from the chain that's reviving the drive-up burger joint, just like a scene out of American Graffiti or Happy Days. At this growing chain you pull up to a stall and servers bring food out to your car as they did in the 40's and 50's. This recipe makes a simple old-fashioned drink by combining Sprite with cherry juice and some wedges of lime. Look for cherry juice in the non-frozen concentrated form from Libby (Juicy Juice). Very refreshing, according to Potsy.

    1 cup Sprite
    1/4 cup cherry juice (Libby Juicy Juice)
    2-3 lime wedges (each wedge is 1/8 of a lime)

    1. Pour Sprite into a glass over ice.
    2. Add cherry juice.
    3. Add 2-3 lime wedges, squeezing slightly before dropping each one in.
