Bourbon Slush, Anyone?
Here in Kentucky, we know our bourbon. In fact 90 per cent of the world's bourbon is made within a 50 mile radius of where I live. With the holidays approaching, I thought it would be fun to share a recipe that I received from my sister-in-law who grew up, ironically, in Baltimore - not Kentucky. But the girl really knows how to make a good slush.
This is a great drink to serve with an appetizer before a meal or to serve as your featured cocktail at a party.
I told you in a previous blog that I am a one-drink kind of girl, and this cocktail is worthy.
Prepare the day before serving.
6 cups water
1 cup bourbon
1 cup sugar
2 cups brewed unsweetened tea
12 ounce can frozen lemonade
6 ounce can frozen orange juice
Mix all of the ingredients until the sugar dissolves.
Put in freezer.
Stir after 6 hours.
Put back in freezer for a few more hours.
Spoon into high ball glasses and serve with a short straw.
Remember to make sure none of your guests - or you- over indulge.

Unfortunately, the bourbon industry is not paying me to promote their product ):
