Easy Bourbon Slush
Growing up in Alaska meant we did a lot of things…differently. Plugging the car in overnight to prevent it from freezing, putting boots and a jacket on the family dog for each walk, and using our back porch as a walk-in freezer. And the one thing that you could always count on to be stocked in our Alaskan-style walk-in freezer? This Easy Bourbon Slush. My parents would find any occasion to break out the bourbon slush, and as a kid, I never quite understood what all the fuss was about. But now that I’m older and have tried this stuff…I understand what the fuss is about. All the fuss.
And when I say this Bourbon Slush recipe is easy, I mean easy. You’ll basically just dissolve the sugar in your hot tea, allowing the tea to steep and sugar to dissolve until cooled. Then simply mix everything together, throw into a large pan or freezer-safe Ziploc bag, and forget about it! The bourbon will prevent the mixture from freezing solid, keeping it a perfect slushy texture until you’re ready to indulge in it.
