Caroline’s Bourbon Slushies for Mardi Gras

adapted from the Jim Bean website


2 cups hot water with 4 bags Lipton tea
2 cups bourbon
1 large can frozen orange juice
1 large can frozen lemonade
1 ½ cups sugar
8 cups boiling water
2 cans lemon-lime soda for serving


Allow the tea bags to steep in the hot water for at least twenty minutes, then remove and discard tea bags.  Mix together the bourbon, frozen orange juice, frozen lemonade sugar and boiling water in a large bowl or tray that will fit in your freezer. Freeze the mixture for two days, shaking intermittently at least three times a day to keep the mixture slushy. Remove it from the freezer at least one hour prior to serving. To serve, fill a glass and top it with one inch of lemon-lime soda.
