Drinks on Me: Bourbon Slush (Alcoholic)

[ 2 ] February 23, 2009 |

Bourbon Slush

2 cups tea
1 1/2 cups sugar
6 oz. frozen orange juice
12 oz. frozen lemonade
3 1/2 cups bourbon whiskey
7 cups water

In a large pitcher (*that can go in the freezer), combine all ingredients (mix well) and freeze overnight. The next day (tomorrow!!), take the pitcher out of the freezer and spoon desired amount into a blender, blend well for about 5-10 seconds until semi-liquid. Serve!

*Johnna’s tip: Ahhh Mardi Gras…where’s Bourbon Street when you need it?? This recipe serves those of us not fortunate enough to partake in the festivities of Mardi Gras in New Orleans this week. Grab the ingredients tonight on your way home and prepare it for tomorrow so you too can feel like you’re in fabulous New Orleans on Fat Tuesday. Throw on some beads, pull out the bourbon and celebrate!

    This recipe looks great. Do you make and try these drink recipes at home and are you going to try this one tomorrow for mardi gras. I am seriously thinking about getting these items on the way home. Yay for mardi gras!

    Thank you Erika! This is one I tried last year, but unfortunately this year I’m not trying again (I’m under the weather…even though, honestly some bourbon might knock this cold right out of me…lol;-) Do try and Happy Mardi Gras!
