Whiskey Slushies Recipe

frozen margaritaphoto by aliciagriffin

By popular request! We attended a birthday party for Jenna’s buddy Benjamin last evening, and Benjamin’s mama served whiskey slushies to the parents in attendance. I’m not a whiskey fan by a long shot, but these were tasty and refreshing! Following is her recipe.

(The photo above is not a whiskey slushie, but it’s pretty much what they looked like. She served them in margarita glasses, and some sugar on the rim would be a tasty addition!)

Whiskey Slushies:

1 (12 oz) can frozen lemonade concentrate
1 (12 oz) can frozen oj concentrate (could use limeade or any other flavor)
1 (46 oz) can pineapple juice
2 C strong brewed tea (steep 6 tea bags in 2 C hot water for about an hour)
1 C sugar
3 C bourbon whiskey or vodka
7 C water
1-2 liters gingerale
lemons, limes, or pineapples cut into wedges or slices for garnish

In a large plastic container combine all ingredients except for ginger ale and fruit wedges. Mix well and freeze for at least 24 hours (mine wasn’t in the freezer that long and it was like a pond in winter…the edges were frozen but the middle not so much). When ready to serve, take out of freezer and as it’s thawing, scoop out into glasses and add ginger ale to taste. Stir and garnish with fruit wedge.  It’s yummy to have in the freezer all summer, refreshing and fun to have it for anytime.

    Ooo. That does sound fun. I’m not a big drinker but sometimes I like to feel like a grown up.

    I’m EXACTLY the same. I’m pretty much a light-weight and lean toward the fruity, fun drinks that are probably considered “wimpy” =)
