The Keurig 2.0 Brewer brews both single K-Cup packs (single cup) and K-Carafe packs (4-cup carafe)! #Keurig400 #CollectiveBias #adSanta must have been listening to me silently curse the fact that I could only make one cup of coffee at a time for my guests this past Thanksgiving. After all of the preparing, cooking, cleaning, and entertaining, there I was standing in front of my old Keurig® waiting for each cup of coffee to brew for my guests. Now don't get me wrong, I sure did love my old Keurig®, and I certainly used the heck out of it for myself and my husband. Using it for when we have guests over, not so much. So when Santa's FedEx elves left the Keurig® 2.0 Brewer on my front porch, I was immediately looking forward to entertaining all of my coffee drinking family and friends!

Both the K-Carafe packs and K-Cup packs fit right in the same pack holder.
The Keurig 2.0 Brewer brews both single K-Cup packs (single cup) and K-Carafe packs (4-cup carafe)! #Keurig400 #CollectiveBias #adI love the versatility of this brewer since my family and friends drink such a wide variety of beverages. With over 400 varieties from 60 brands, the Keurig® 2.0 Brewer (found at Walmart), allows me to offer my guests their favorite beverage. Plus, the new Keurig® 2.0 features Keurig 2.0 Brewing Technology™, which reads each lid to deliver a perfect beverage every time.

The Keurig 2.0 Brewer brews both single K-Cup packs (single cup) and K-Carafe packs (4-cup carafe)! #Keurig400 #CollectiveBias #adFor those of you who read my posts on a regular basis, you know that lately I have been mentioning how I hope to make as many memories this holiday season since it is our last in Wisconsin before we move to Minnesota. I had the opportunity to gift a Keurig® 2.0 Brewer to our friends Kari and Barry and they were very excited to receive it since they too were looking to upgrade their old brewer. 

When we moved to our little city almost 8 years ago, we knew no one. Kari and I met through a mom's group and became fast friends. My husband and I have been friends with the both of them ever since. Since Kari works as an EMT a few nights a week and sometimes gets very little sleep, the Keurig® 2.0 Brewer will work well for her when they are both in need of more than one cup of coffee in the morning. 
The Keurig 2.0 Brewer brews both single K-Cup packs (single cup) and K-Carafe packs (4-cup carafe)! #Keurig400 #CollectiveBias #adThe happiness, appreciation, and excitement when they opened the Keurig® 2.0 Brewer is definitely going to be a lasting memory for us all. 

The Keurig 2.0 Brewer brews both single K-Cup packs (single cup) and K-Carafe packs (4-cup carafe)! #Keurig400 #CollectiveBias #adAnd now that we both have the same Keurig® 2.0 Brewer, when they come to visit us in Minnesota, they can get their own coffee in the morning since they will know exactly how to use it. :)

Brandy Slush Holiday Drink Recipe

#MingleNMix #CollectiveBias

This brandy slush recipe is SO good! Top with Canada Dry Ginger Ale or 7UP and enjoy!! #MingleNMix #ad #cbiasI am so looking forward to a bit of relaxing during Christmas and New Years. Christmas Eve is going to be spent with my husband's family and this year my sister-in-law decided it was going to be a themed evening - with pjs! When she suggested the idea, I was all for it! A night of relaxing, gift giving, and good food in my Christmas themed pjs? Absolutely! The only thing left to add is a cocktail in my hand. A glass of wine can be nice, but the holidays are special and deserve a special cocktail. 

Christmastime + cocktails = brandy slush! 

For as far back as I can remember, my mom had been making brandy slush in big ice cream containers for holidays parties. Of course as I kid I never had any, but I did fill my glass with Canada Dry Ginger Ale® and 7UP®.

If you have never made brandy slush before, here is a great recipe from my mom. The trick to this drink is having both Canada Dry Ginger Ale® and 7UP® on hand for the mixer. The Canada Dry Ginger Ale® and 7UP® give the brandy slush a unique taste making it either citrus flavored or ginger flavored. 

Brandy Slush Holiday Drink Recipe

This brandy slush recipe is SO good! Top with Canada Dry Ginger Ale or 7UP and enjoy!! #MingleNMix #ad #cbias

  • 2 cups brandy
  • 7 cups cold water
  • 2 cups sugar 
  • 4 tea bags steeped in 2 cups water
  • 12 oz can of frozen orange juice concentrate (thawed)
  • 6 oz of lemonade frozen concentrate (thawed)
  • 6 oz of lime frozen concentrate (thawed)
  • 2-liter bottle each of Canada Dry Ginger Ale® and 7UP®.

Step #1 Steep 4 tea bags in 2 cups of hot water. 

Step #2 Mix together brandy, 7 cups cold water, and sugar in a stockpot and bring to a boil. Once it boils, turn off the heat.

Step #3 Remove tea bags and pour tea into brandy and sugar mixture in stockpot. 

Step #4 Add orange juice, lemonade, and lime concentrate to stockpot and mix well.

This brandy slush recipe is SO good! Top with Canada Dry Ginger Ale or 7UP and enjoy!! #MingleNMix #ad #cbias

Step #5 Once it's slightly cooled, use a glass measuring cup to pour mixture into a gallon ice cream container or divide into smaller freezer safe containers.

Step #6 Freeze for at least 24 hours. 

This brandy slush recipe is SO good! Top with Canada Dry Ginger Ale or 7UP and enjoy!! #MingleNMix #ad #cbias

I divided mine into three 5-cup containers so I can use for different parties. Try to keep the brandy slush frozen up until you plan on using it. There is no need to thaw it out since this is a slush anyways.

Scoop a little into your glass and top with either Canada Dry Ginger Ale® or 7UP®. I prefer Canada Dry Ginger Ale®. So, so good. 

This brandy slush recipe is SO good! Top with Canada Dry Ginger Ale or 7UP and enjoy!! #MingleNMix #ad #cbiasI'm not sure I can wait until Christmas Eve to have a brandy slush. And once the kids see the Canada Dry Ginger Ale® and 7UP® chilling in the fridge, they will definitely be asking to have some. 

This brandy slush recipe is SO good! Top with Canada Dry Ginger Ale or 7UP and enjoy!! #MingleNMix #ad #cbiasWalmart carries most varieties of both Canada Dry Ginger Ale® and 7UP® in cans and bottles. Instead of using the classic 7UP® you could try this brandy slush topped with Cherry 7UP® - that sounds real good too! 

Are you ready to relax this holiday? Go ahead and try this budget friendly Brandy Slush Holiday Drink Recipe with Canada Dry Ginger Ale® and 7UP® and chances are, while you are sipping your drink on Christmas Eve, I will be too - in my Christmas pjs! Cheers!
