Bourbon Slush

Serves: 16 guests

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of hot strong tea: 4 packets of PIQUE tea (of your choice) 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 + sugar in a 1 gallon glass container + stir until dissolved. Add the lemonade + orange juice + stir until thawed.

  • In a blender, in batches, blend ice with enough of the ice water to make a slush + 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 + place them in the freezer until serving, breaking up the slush + stirring about every 2 hours to freeze the mixture evenly.

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

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