Yes, I did post this recipe last year, but I'm sure quite a few of you missed it or maybe weren't even reading this blog at the time. With that in mind, I am re-sharing the amazing-ness that is my mom's brandy slush recipe. Even though it's slushy (something we usually associate with summer drinks), there is nothing more perfect for the holidays than brandy slush. Cheers!
9 cups of water
2 cups of sugar
4 original tea bags
2 cups of brandy
16 oz frozen concentrated orange juice
16 oz frozen concentrated lemonade
Note: Two 8 oz bottles of unfrozen lemonade will also work if the 16oz frozen concentrate lemonade proves difficult to find.
Add 9 cups of water and 2 cups of sugar together into a large pan. Boil the mixture for two minutes.
Remove the mixture from the burner and add 4 original/regular tea bags right away. It's crucial to add the tea bags while the sugar water is still incredibly hot.
Let the mixture with tea bags cool.
Remove the tea bags after a few minutes and add 2 cups of brandy
Add the frozen concentrated orange juice and frozen concentrated lemonade.
Be sure to stir thoroughly. Then freeze the mixture until slushy!
Serve by mixing the slush with Squirt, 7-up, or Sprite - whichever you prefer.
Let me know if you do end up using this recipe! Enjoy your brandy slush!
