Recipe Notes

The grenadine makes your drink a pretty pink color. In my pictures I omitted the grenadine in half of the mixture to get a green color.

The size of the pan is more dictated by your freezer space. Make sure to clear off a shelf before you're ready to place it the freezer to avoid spilling. I usually use 2-3 pans and double the recipe because it goes so quickly when I make it.

If you are short on time, you can use several pans. A smaller thinner amount in the pan means it freezes quicker.
