Our 4th of July starts with a 5th of Bourbon
Traditions are great, especially when they involve bourbon. Every 4th of July, we have a bunch of family over to slip & slide, eat lots of bbq ribs, watch some fireworks and enjoy a big cup of this slushy goodness. You need to get this in the freezer a couple of days in advance & keep stirring it to spread the love...uh...bourbon... thru the mixture as it freezes. Perfect for a hot, hot day.
Serves up to 10
3 cups bourbon
24 oz frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
12 oz frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
4 cups strong brewed tea
3 quarts water
In a 1-1/2-gallon pitcher, mix bourbon, juices and tea. Stir in water. Place in freezer. Stir after 8 hours. Continue to freeze & stir for up to 2 days. Defrost 30 minutes before serving. Stir and serve.
tip: beware of brain freeze
