#ThurstyThursday: Bourbon Slush

Boy are you in for a treat this week!! Well...I mean let's be honest, you're in for a treat every Thursday, but...this week is special. I saw this recipe last week on one of the many episodes of The Kitchen that I have recorded and it looked so easy I knew it was my next Thursty Thursday recipe. And...since Mike left me, he can't say anything about it!! Whoop Whoop!!

This was so simple and truthfully there are like no ingredients involved. It would be perfect for a summer party to keep in a container in a cooler and do work!! Gee...I'm having a lot of those "summer" recipes lately, aren't I? Hmmm maybe I NEED SUMMER!!!!!!

Bourbon Slush
4 cups strong brewed tea
24 oz. lemonade concentrate, thawed
12 oz. orange juice concentrate, thawed
3 cups bourbon

Mix all together in large pitcher or bowl. Freeze for 8 hours. Stir. Freeze for at least another 2 hours. Enjoy!!

My co-host this week is the lovely Lisa from Showered with Design!! Isn't she gorgeous? That hottie beside her is her new hubby. They just got married this summer and you have to go check out all the details. GORGEOUS!! Lisa has an Etsy shop also called Showered with Design. She specializes in monogramed pieces and I may or may not have just won a monogramed ring dish from her shop!! Whoop Whoop. Be sure to stop by and pay her a visit!!

  1. this sounds fantastic. I'm really ready for summer to be here + frozen drinks to be more than acceptable.

  2. This post has me dreaming of an island vacation! Happy Thursday :)

  3. I may try this with some Henny. Sounds good. Is it a smooth slush or more of a chunky one?

  4. Yummmmmmm! I totally missed the link up today...I'll be back at it next week. This week just got away from me somehow!!!

  5. Mmmmmmm...we are a big fan of bourbon in my house! In fact, we made the Smitten Kitten's Vermontucky Lemonade as one of our signature cocktails at our wedding and it gets made regularly for on the beach. We love it so much we made a batch of it for NYE and for a Mardi Gras parade recently - might make more for next weekend's parade. We also have recently re-discovered milk punch. So good! We'll have to add the bourbon slush to our list of fantastic cocktails!

    1. I haven't heard of the cocktail you mentioned but I'm definitely looking it up. I'm not a huge fan of bourbon but in this it is delicious!!! This would be perfect for a summer party. It melts in just the right amount of time and tastes soooo good. P.S. You're a no reply blogger. If you want to change that, go here:

  6. This drink sounds like it was made for me!

  7. You had me at bourbon! That slush looks seriously amazing! Pinning for summertime on my deck! :)

  8. Um, YUM - sounds like a perfect vacay drink!
