A sweet, summer classic from our own Kentucky Derby Museum Cookbook:
Makes 3 Quarts
- 2 ½ cups of tea (2 ½ cups of water and 2 small tea bags)
- 1 12-ounce can frozen lemonade, thawed
- 1 6-ounce can frozen orange juice
- 2 cups Kentucky bourbon
- 1 cup sugar
- 6 cups water
Get your bourbon fix at the next summer cookout! Whether your guests are experienced bourbon connoisseurs or bourbon newbies, this drink will quickly become everyone’s favorite. It contains a hefty dose of bourbon but is sweet enough for the novices to thoroughly enjoy.
To begin, brew a small batch of tea and let cool to room temperature. Mix in the frozen but thawed lemonade & orange juice along with the sugar & water.
Now, for the most important part! Add the liquid goodness, [any] Kentucky bourbon, and mix. As always, feel free to be a bit more generous with this ingredient.
Cover & place in freezer overnight to get your bourbon-infused slushy goodness.
The next day, scoop the bourbon treat into a glass & garnish with pineapple chunks on a toothpick, or cherry. Enjoy!
-Make the bourbon slush portable! Put mix into a plastic container with a lid and pop into a cooler filled with ice. For easy access, bring a scooping utensil.
-Beware: Once you make this deliciousness, all of your bourbon-loving, tailgating friends will ask you to make a batch (or two) for every summer outing!
