We love going to Sonic for a refreshing drink to beat the heat. There are many Sonic slush flavors they offer, but now I can easily make their favorite slushie at home.

This Sonic Slushie is the perfect drink when hosting a family gathering or your next BBQ. They taste amazing and are easy to make.

Making this slushie drink at home allows everyone to create their favorite combination. You can even top the slushie with your favorite candies for a fun twist.
