  • 1
    Brew 2 family-sized tea bags in 9 cups of very hot water.
  • 2
    Melt 1 to 2 cups of sugar in the brewing hot tea.
  • 3
    When cool enough, transfer to a freezer-safe container.
  • 4
    Add a 12 ounce can of frozen orange juice and a 12 ounce can of frozen lemonade. Stir well.
  • 5
    Add 1 to 2.5 cups of good bourbon. Stir well.
  • 6
    Freeze for at least 2 nights because alcohol takes longer to freeze than water.
  • 7
    Serve in lowball glasses, adding lemon-lime soda or sparkling water to each glass to help break the mixture into slush, if desired.
  • 8
    Garnish each glass with a lemon slice and a lime slice.

More About This Recipe
Perfect for fancy Super Bowl parties, Kentucky Derby parties, BBQ’s or a weeknight happy-hour-at-home, this citrusy, boozy Bourbon Slushie is unforgettable.

Even better, it’s easy!

Reminiscent of Southern sweet tea, with a delightful, spicy bourbon kick, the original Bourbon Slushie recipe for this drink comes from Ang, of the fun and hilariously-touted “fourth funniest blog on the web,” Tall Curly Biscuit.

Frozen juice concentrates (orange juice and lemonade) make this grown-up slushie extra quick and simple to throw together. Also, don’t be afraid to experiment with other juice flavors and liquors to create your own signature drinks. Mango-limeade rum slushie anyone? Just use green tea instead of regular black tea, use mango and limeade concentrates instead of the orange and lemonade, and use light rum instead of the bourbon.

Bottoms up!
