bourbon slush

bourbon slush.  ahhhh Christmas Eve.  my grandma started making this delicious concoction back in 1989 and made it every christmas eve when we were growing up.  i didn’t get to DRINK any of it until i was 21 in 2003…but i know the adults enjoyed it for many years before that.  i remember when my grandma could give me a little taste of the orange ice when i was younger…and i knew that someday…i’d be drinking these on christmas eve :).  this drink is so refreshing and festive.  the perfect compliment to my other favorite christmas drink, the caramel apple hot toddy.  you should always have a warm and a cold option for your guests!


i love fun drink recipes because they’re simple.  mix the ingredients, freeze, and serve.  voila! christmas is served!
