Sometimes you want a cold drink when you’re in the middle of a heat wave. And you’ve had lemonade, and you’ve drunk sweet tea, and you’ve guzzled gallons of water.
What you want is a refreshing spiked drink. :) Just to survive the heat wave, you understand, and keep your spirits up (no pun intended.) If you’re in the South, you might want a bourbon. And a bourbon slush would be the perfect way to go. Fruity, practically frozen, and with just enough oomph to get you through your heat wave fatigue.
2 regular teabags
1 cup hot water
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup bourbon
1-6 oz can frozen orange juice
1-12 oz can frozen lemonade
3 1/2 cups water
After steeping tea bag for 5 minutes in hot water, dissolve sugar into tea while still hot, then add bourbon, and water to the mixture. Freeze. Stir before serving.
Hope it’s nice and cool where you are…and if it’s not, that you’re finding ways to handle the heat! :)
