Bourbon Slush

Sharing is caring!

Bourbon Slush is a refreshing and boozy summer drink that combines the robust flavor of bourbon with the sweet and tangy tastes of sweetened black tea, frozen lemonade concentrate, and orange concentrate. This frozen cocktail is perfect for hot days, offering a cooling and delicious way to enjoy bourbon in a slushy form.

Tasting Notes

Upon the first sip, Bourbon Slush delivers a balanced mix of sweetness and acidity. The sweetened black tea provides a smooth, slightly tannic base that is immediately brightened by the tangy, citrusy notes of the lemonade and orange concentrates. The frozen nature of the drink enhances its refreshing qualities, making it an ideal choice for warm weather.

As the slush melts slightly, the bourbon’s rich, oaky flavor becomes more pronounced, adding depth and complexity to the drink. The bourbon’s caramel and vanilla undertones blend harmoniously with the citrusy sweetness, creating a well-rounded and satisfying taste experience.

The interplay between the cold, slushy texture and the warming bourbon provides a unique contrast that is both invigorating and comforting.

Tips & Tricks

Swap out the black tea for a flavored tea, such as peach or raspberry, to introduce new layers of fruity complexity.

Incorporate fresh mint leaves for a hint of herbal freshness that complements the citrus flavors and adds a cool, aromatic note.
