Bourbon Slush, a fruity cocktail with bourbon whiskey, lemonade, orange juice and brewed tea mixed together and frozen.
Bourbon Slush – An Adult Slushy!
I’ll hush about our weather here in California since I know so many of you are still seeing icicles from your windows, and I am not.
But even if your flip-flops are buried at the bottom of your closet, I still think you should enjoy a little sunshine in the way of this Bourbon Slush!
There is no reason to wait for spring or summer to enjoy this boozy slushy!
Mix everything together and partake in a glass or two this weekend!
Whiskey Slush Signature Cocktail
Remember that I told you about my Alan’s Mardi Gras birthday celebration?
In addition to the BBQ Shrimp that I served, I also mixed up this cocktail.
This slushy sure helped cool down the heat from those spicy shrimp! The two are a fabulous duo.
I served wine and beer as well as non-alcoholic beverages for our guests, but I thought a signature cocktail would be a fun addition.
Hidden in the sweet fruit juices, you can taste a hint of bourbon.
It’s not overpowering, so it goes down pretty easily, and it’s quite tasty!
Party Drink Idea For Mardi Gras
I made a batch for the party, which was gone sooner than expected, and I have since made it another time when family was visiting from Wisconsin.
Mardi Gras birthday party goers were handed a glass, and with the warmth from our hands, it quickly melted from crystalized ice to the perfect slush.
I broke out the Dixie cups (not pictured) for our family and we drank them as if they were in shot glasses 🙂
Whiskey and Lemonade A Delicious Combination!
The fruit juices kind of fools you into thinking you are sipping an pine-orange breakfast drink, so it goes down pretty easily.
Be careful because you won’t initially feel the bourbon zing.
After a few sips and the initial Mmmm, you’ll be drinking it a little quicker.
You’re forewarned 🙂
