Whiskey Slush

How does one with borderline Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder deal with an upcoming living room renovation and the Summer heat?  They drink.  Like any responsible grown-up does.

I kid.  Sort of.  There has to be some perks to being an adult right.  Bills and booze.  Again, I kid.  Sort of.  The thought of having our living room torn apart for a month or so is wigging me out.  I'll deal. I know it will be worth it.  But chaos makes me all twitchy.

My co-worker gave me this delicious Summer drink recipe to try and calm my nerves.  It's a recipe for a delicious adult beverage that you can keep on hand or serve to a large group.  And it's pretty much the most delicious thing I've made in a long while.  You could leave out the booze if you are a responsible (or medicated) adult.  (It won't stay slushy for long if you do that.  Not a total deal breaker.)

Whiskey Slush.  A great Summer drink.

Here's what you will need to whip up this lovely Summer beverage.

  • 1 large lemonade (~1/2 gallon)
  • 2 cups orange juice
  • 2 cups ice tea
  • 1 1/2-2 cups whiskey
    • We used a honey whiskey.  It's from a local distillery.  Local honey plus local booze.  Such hipsters we are.
  • 7 cups water
  • 2 cups sugar

Bring sugar and water to a boil. Remove from heat.  Cool slightly.  Add remaining ingredients.  Freeze.

Try to not drink the entire container in one sitting.  Because you are a responsible adult and this thing is loaded with sugar and booze.

Hipster paper straws are optional.

Whiskey Slush.  Great Summer drink recipe.
