    Bourbon Slush
    Ingredients:

    • 2 cups of freshly-brewed strong black tea*
    • 1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
    • 1 (6-ounce) can frozen orange juice concentrate

    Preparation:

    1. In a large, freezer-safe container, mix together the tea, sugar, orange juice concentrate, lemonade concentrate, water, and whiskey. Place in freezer and freeze at least 6 hours.
    2. When bourbon mixture is frozen (as frozen as it can get with liquor in it), take it out of freezer and blend the mixture in your blender for a few seconds. Return to freezer for at least 1 hour.
    3. When ready to serve, remove frozen mixture from the freezer and let stand for approximately 5 minutes.
    4. To serve, scoop (an ice cream scoop works great) bourbon slush to fill a glass approximately 3/4 full. Top with lemon-lime beverage of your choice. Don’t stir, but let beverage coagulate with the frozen tea before drinking.
