6 oz orange juice frozen concentrate
2 cups sugar
2 cups hot strong tea
2 cups bourbon
7 cups water
Ginger ale or lemon-lime soda to taste.
In a lidded, freezer-proof container or two (Tupperware and Rubbermaid pitchers work well), stir together all ingredients except ginger ale until thoroughly blended. The concentrate should not be prediluted with water, and plain tea like Lipton or Red Rose works well.
Place the container(s) in the freezer overnight or for at least 4-6 hours depending on the make and model of your appliance. It should be firm all the way through, but it will not freeze completely solid.
Scoop around half to three quarters of a cup of the slush into a tumbler, top with ginger ale or lemon-lime soda to taste and serve.
And did I mention how sneaky it is? Keep an eye on your guests and back with LOTS of water, lest they slip too far into the slush pile.
Note: Don't splurge on the good stuff for this. Save your Woodford and Booker's for sipping and juleps (and hand your Van Winkle on over this way). Evan Williams is cheap, respectable and gets the job done.
