I received this recipe about 20 years ago at our office party and I have made it mine. I serve it everytime I have a get-together. When I invite my guests to the party, the first thing I am asked is, are you serving the slush?? Everyone just loves it and
your going to love it too!

Ingredients

  • 2 ea.
    teabags (regular size)
  • 1 c
    Boiling water
  • 1/2 c
    Sugar
  • 1 can(s)
    orange juice, frozen concentrate (small can)
  • 1 can(s)
    lemon juice concentrate (small can)
  • 1/2 c
    Bourbon (I use Crown Royal, but any will do)
  • 3 3/4 c
    water, cold

How to Make Bourbon Slush

Step-by-Step

  1. Pour 1 cup of boiling water over the teabags and let sit until the tea is a dark color.
  2. Pour warm tea over the 1/2 cup sugar and mix well.
  3. Add the orange juice and lemonade to this and stir good.
  4. Add the bourbon and remaining 3 3/4 cups of water.
  5. Note:Taste this mixture, if not strong enough to suit your taste add a little more bourbon. I would not add more than a 1/4 cup more bourbon. Mix this well and pour into a plastic pitcher with top and put in freezer. Freeze over night.
  6. When ready to serve , remove from freezer and spoon about 1/2 glass full of slush into glass and then fill remaining half of the glass with 7-up or Sprite.
  7. I always double this recipe (If doubled it fits well into a gallon pitcher for freezing. You will probably have to freeze it for a day longer if doubling into the gallon size).

    I made 3 double recipes at Christmas for 50 people and I had just enough left over for News Years Eve. You can freeze any leftovers for about a month. I ususally just put the left over in a gallon plastic bag and freeze it.
  8. Info: I use Crown Royal and 7-up because thats what I like the best. But I have used Seagrams before and somefolks liked it better. Sprite is good too but it's a little sweet for me so I prefer the 7-up. It's up to you.
