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  🙂
