Peppermint Iced Tea Slushies

Christmas is my favorite holiday. I am the annoying friend that is constantly making facebook posts about how many Fridays are left until Christmas day ( 24 by the way ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) So when July came rolling in I knew I had to jump on the bandwagon with an amazing Christmas in July recipe. Recently, my family and I took a trip to Knoebels Amusement Park, and while there, I indulged in an iced tea slushie. I had them before, but for some reason, on that particular day, it tasted amazing! Maybe it was the heat or maybe it had just been freshly brewed, either way, it left my tastebuds wanting more. I knew I had to recreate this slushie using my own iced tea recipe and luckily I found an unopened box of leftover candy canes in my pantry. I served these Peppermint Iced Tea Slushies at my fourth of July gathering and they were a huge hit! Everyone loved them! This year, after Christmas, when the candy canes go on sale, I will be stocking up for next summer.

I want to make a note that you could certainly use peppermint schnapps in this recipe. Because I am not a heavy drinker I am uncertain on how much peppermint schnapps should be used per drink. However, I do not think it would be difficult to figure out. If you decide to make this an alcoholic drink I would love to hear how much schnapps you used and how it turned out.
