On summer days when the heat radiates off the New York pavement and up through my shoes, I sometimes wish I could ride my bike to the grocery store and pick out a flavor. The closest came during a recent weekend when someone made a vat of bourbon slushies – the greatest thing to happen to shaved ice since Snoopy.
And it’s a savior when you think you are out of whiskey. Someone says the golden words, “Check the freezer.” Then you grab a spoon, shave off some bourbon ice, and the balance of the universe is restored.
In large container, mix the following:
· 12 oz orange juice concentrate
· 12 oz lemonade concentrate
· 40-50 oz lemonade already mixed
· 2 cups strong brewed tea, unsweetened
· 2 cups bourbon
Put in freezer. When thirsty or hot, carve off some spoonfuls. Add more whiskey on top if desired. Eat with spoon.
