Q.  If my slush melts, can I re-freeze it?
A.  You can re-freeze any liquid; however, you cannot re-freeze slush. The consistency and flavor will not be the same and will form freezer crystals.
 
Q.  How do I keep my slush cold?
A.  Slush is a frozen product, therefore, you must keep it in a freezer or a cooler full of ice at all times. However, moving the slush to the refrigerator a half-hour before use will make the slush a scoop-able consistency.
