Bourbon Slush

What are those things called at the 7-11 store, Slurpys, I think. The ones that give you "brain freeze". This is an adult "bourbon slurpy". It is not a traditional Derby Party beverage, but they are very good. A little sprig of fresh mint in these would not hurt either.

Bourbon Slush
about 5-6 cups
print recipe

1 cup boiling water
2 tea bags
1/2 cup sugar
3 1/2 cups water
1 6-ounce can of frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
1/2 of a 6-ounce can of frozen lemonade, thawed
1/2 -1 cup of good Ky. bourbon, I'd go for the 1 cup

Steep the tea bags in the boiling water for 2-3 minutes. Before tea cools, stir in the 1/2 cup sugar. Add the water, juice concentrates, and bourbon. Pour into a freezer bowl and keep inn freezer for 12 hours or longer before serving. This never really freezes; it just turns into a nice slushy consistency.
