In North America, Australia, Certain European & African Countries, India , Pakistan and most Asian Countries lemonade is usually made from lemon juice, water, and sugar or Honey and is often home-made as well at Juice-Shops as, 'Fresh Lime'.


Frozen uncarbonated beverages are made by freezing a non-carbonated juice or other liquid. Machines for producing these do not require a pressure chamber, and so are much cheaper and easier to maintain.

Slush is made by a mixture of sugar and water. To prevent the mixture from freezing solid there must be between 12% - 22% of sugar present in thesolution. The sugar acts as an anti-freeze in the solution. The slush machine stirs or rotates the mixture at a constant speed so that the sugar and water molecules bond together before the water gets a chance to freeze. In this way a soft wet slurry mixture is formed.

Today i will show you how to make slush with out any machine.
