Refreshing Lime Slush

Nothing quenches my thirst on a hot summer day quite like a Lime drink...Lime Slush...Limeade...Margarita!  

I made this for a Memorial Day BBQ we went to.  Although in my usual "running late trying to get everyone out of the house in clean clothes looking presentable and have some amazing side dish" didn't have time to freeze, so it works wells as a Limeade as well as a Lime Slush.

11 cups of water
3 cups of sugar 
3/4 cup limeade concentrate
2 liters lemon-lime soda, chilled
Lime slices are optional

In a 4-qt. freezer container, combine the water, sugar and limeade concentrate until sugar is dissolved; cover and freeze.  (Or not if your behind schedule)  Remove from the freezer several hours before serving.  (Yeah Right!)  Chop mixture until slushy.  (You wish!)  Add soda just before serving.  Garnish with lime slices if you are an over achiever.  Yields: 5 and 1/2 quarts (a massive 30 servings)...that's another part I didn't notice...we still have limeade in our fridge.

I'll take the leftovers! Limes are so refreshing, even when the juice is drizzled on fries! Mmmm mmm, good!
