Bourbon Slush

Serves: 16 guests

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of hot strong tea (4 tea bags steeped in 2 cups of boiling water)

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 2 six ounce cans of frozen lemonade

  • 1 six ounce can of frozen orange juice

  • 5 cups of crushed ice

  • 2 cups of deluxe bourbon

  • 1 quart cold ginger ale (or to taste)

  • Fresh mint sprigs



Directions

  • At least six hours before serving, combine the tea and sugar in a 1 gallon plastic or glass container and stir until dissolved. Add the lemonade and orange juice and stir until thawed.

  • In a blender, in batches, blend ice with enough of the ice water to make a slush and add this to the tea mixture. Add the remaining ice water if it wasn't used with the ice. Stir in the bourbon.

  • Pour the slush into several shallow plastic containers and place them in the freezer until serving, breaking up the slush and stirring about every 2 hours to freeze the mixture evenly.

  • The mixture can be made 3-4 days ahead and frozen in a larger container; stir every 6-8 hours to keep mixture loose and evenly frozen. (Note: use the timer on your phone or Alexa)

  • To serve, spoon the slush into tall or stemmed glasses and top off with ginger ale, Garnish each glass with a mint sprig.
