Recipe: Bourbon Slush

A fruity blend of juices, tea and bourbon whiskey are frozen into a slush, and then served topped off with lemon lime soda. This takes a while, but its worth it

  • 1 (12 ounce) can frozen lemonade concentrate

  • 1 (46 fluid ounce) can pineapple juice

  • 1? cups white sugar

  • 2 cups strong brewed black tea

  • 2 cups bourbon whiskey

  • 1 (2 liter) bottle lemon-lime flavored carbonated beverage

How to Make Bourbon Slush

  1. In a large bowl or container, mix together the orange juice concentrate, lemonade concentrate, pineapple juice, sugar, tea, and whiskey. Transfer to shallow bowls or dishes, and freeze overnight.

  2. Remove the frozen mixture from the freezer and let stand for about 10 minutes. Chop with a wire whisk or potato masher to make a slushy consistency. Place scoops of the frozen slush into glasses, and top off with the lemon-lime flavored soda.

Bourbon Slush Reviews

  • My Dad makes this every year for Thanksgiving. Here is his recipe that has been tested to the MAX.: 12oz can OJ (not diluted) 12oz can Lemonade (not diluted) 1 cup sugar 2 1/2 cups Bourbon (we use a well) 2 cups tea (4 teabags + 2 ups boiling water) Mix together & freeze in rectangle shaped tupperware for at least 24 hrs. Scoop out into glasses & top with Champagne (my fav.) or Gingerale/Sprite/7-up/Clubsoda/Tonic We triple this recipe and never have enough

  • I keep a frozen container of this in my freezer at ALL times. Only I dont like Bourbon so I use Bacardi. It is great.

  • This was good but I did have to modify it a bit as it was more to the syrupy sweet side than I like. I left out a just a little of the juices and a bit less sugar and added more of the tea and bourbon. With this it tasted great just as it was and didnt even need to be made into a slushy (only needed ice). I did try it as a slushy with the 7-Up and it was refreshing on the hot day we had. For a company gathering though I may just make it in a punch bowl with an ice ring and I think it will be great

  • This went over VERY well with some guests of mine the other night. You may think Im nuts (or an alcoholic), but a pinch more liquor wouldnt have hurt this much. Im not saying much...just a pinch

  • Wow is this good

  • Excellent This is great because it makes quite a few drinks but even if youre only serving a couple of people, you can keep it in the freezer until youre ready for more You dont waste a whole bowl of "punch" for just a few people. Its got a great flavor I will make this again...even if its just for me (and store the rest in the freezer until Im ready for more) YUM

  • I cant wait to make this. I have been searching my grandmothers recipes for 5 years trying to find her recipe for slush. She never used pineapple juice because she was allergic so ill make the appropriate changes. Thank you SO much for posting brings back so many memories. Im gonna make some this weekend Side note-you can also use vernors or any ginger ale instead of 7 up or sprite. Also, this makes a bowl full and will keep half forever in the freeer.

  • For one who cannot stomach the taste of bourbon, this was surprisingly good. I think a little less sugar and this would have been 5 star. Served with a variety of sodas/mix to customize to ones own taste buds. Will make again for a group as this goes a long way. Thanks Robbie Rice for a change of pace

  • I doubled the orange juice and left out the pineapple. Great summer and holiday drink.

  • So good and refreshing I did cut down on the sugar and used a touch more bourbon b/c I wanted to finish off the bottle. I will definatly make again.

  • Tip: To keep on hand for later use, store in the freezer in quart size freezer bags. Push out the air & seal (test the seal) and lay flat.

  • Delicious summer drink for entertaining. I try to keep some frozen for unexpected guests.

  • Yummy I have made this drink several times It always get rave reviews. We take it to the beach every year. I freeze a big batch in ziploc bags then we scoop it out as needed and pour on ginger ale (diet:) I make these a little stronger than the recipes calls for - but they are good either way OH -- and I do little or no sugar It is pretty sweet already with all the juices. I will sometimes add a little (1/4 cup or so)

  • This was so good. We thought it was a little sweet. I will cut the sugar in half next time. We also used cold Diet Sprite over the slush. YUM

  • HUGE HIT And I came up with a way to solve the "too sweet for me/not sweet enough" dilemma, since I think that is something that comes up with most any cocktail from margaritas to highballs: in addition to offering with 7Up type beverage, I also had Club Soda next to it. Those who tend to like a less sweet drink (like me) used the soda to cut the sweetness without changing the flavor of the drink. Those who like a more "girly" sweet drink could add the 7Up in an amount pleasing to them. We entertain a great deal and this was the first pre-made drink that weve ever used that really did please everyone. One last tip: while we did use a "well" type bourbon to make the mix, we also had some "Top Shelf" Bourbon there if anyone wanted to go a little stronger. It was delicious as a small float on top of the frozen slush and really made it work beautifully. So no changes here to the actual recipe, but we did give guests the ability to customize it to their taste. 5 STARS FOR SURE (and I dont give 5 too often) Happy Partying

  • Delicious and great for a crowd. My family enjoys this at the beach; the guys especially love it

  • I had to make some changes based on what i had. i used whiskey and pineapple rum instead of pineapple juice and added a can of limeade conc. dangerously delicious

  • This drink is beyond good, just plain irresistable. Like many of the other reviewers, I intend to always have some ready in the freezer. A note about the lemon-lime soda....the first time I made this bourbon slush, I didnt realize I was suppose to pour the soda over the slush - I mixed the soda (7-Up) in with all the other ingredients and put it in the freezer - it was still fantastic

  • I was looking for a recipe to serve at my best friends pool party. I gave it a trial run at my house the week before when I had company. They drank every drop I drank quite a bit of it myself. This is excellent and I dont even like the taste of bourbon Highly recommend

  • Ive been making this for years and highly recommend it. Always a party pleaser. And as another reader stated, it keeps well in the freezer so you can always keep some on hand. You can also substitute the Bourbon with som Seargrams 7.

  • This is great to keep on hand for drop in company...a perfect make ahead item for a party...and everyone who tries it enjoys it - even those who "hate" bourbon it isnt Christmas in our house till this is in the freezer :-) . if you are having a family get together, divide mix in half, and add the bourbon to only one half, and even the kids can enjoy. (reduce the amount of bourbon, of course)

  • It was a HUGE hit at a Mardi Gras Party I went to. People loved it I also used Sprite Zero instead of regular sprite to cut the sweetness a little. Making it again this weekend

  • Im giving this 4 stars since i did modify the recipe based on previous reviews: i used 12 oz. cans of both lemonade and oj, 1/2 the amount of pineapple juice, and 1/2 c. sugar. oh, and an extra cup of bourbon. super yummy

  • Our family has made this for years using peach brandy rather than the bourbon.

  • I dislike it when people review a recipe and say how they made changes to well I am breaking my rule...this was great except for two things: (1) it made way too much - enough if you are having a party, but too much if its just 4 people one night, I will halve it next time, and (2) it was way too sweet - I will try cutting the sugar back or eliminating it all together, the OJ concentrate is super sweet enough and adding sprite too compounds the sugar. But loved the bourbon citrus taste and best of all it was nice and cool on a hot 4th of July

  • Delicious and refreshing...I could easily drink the entire pitcher. (not suggested) ;)

  • Awesome summer drink. Love itDid not have lime soda, so I had to use club soda, turned out just a good.

  • Easy to make and everyone really enjoying it

  • This is a really fun drink for a girls night out. Its sweet, but not too sweet. Everyone seemed to enjoy. I cant wait to have an exuse to make it again.

  • This could be VERY good, but it was VERY sweet even though I omitted the sugar. Next time, I will double the tea and perhaps use tonic water instead of sprite to mix it. That should make it 5 stars.

  • Not too impressed with this recipe. Even though I cut back on the sugar, it was way too sweet. Also, as another rater suggested, the pineapple juice overpowered the flavors. I felt like it was a waste of bourbon

  • Id be in big trouble with the family if I didnt make a batch or two of these for our 4th of July reunion each year. Liked by everyone

  • SOOOO delicious I am used to making Brandy Slush for my family but this was a great variation for my Mardi Gras party this year. Thank you for sharing. It was absolutely delightful The tea really added to the flavor. Mmm...

  • I have made one similar to this one,it didnt call for the lemon aid or the pineapple....but that does sound good.I skip the sugar...because it is sweet anyway...

  • This was a big hit at my party. I only used 1/3 cup sugar and it was sweet enough.

  • Great for the beach

  • Delish Everyone loved it.

  • We had this for a friends party two years ago and is now requested. LOVE this drink Making it tonight

  • Wow, this is a great refreshing drink for summer My friends all wanted the recipe too

  • Ive had this basic recipe since the 1970s. It was called "Hop, Skip and Go Naked" Its deliciously refreshing, but it can pack a "punch," so be careful.

  • Delish. Did not use pineapple juice and used Splenda instead of sugar. Wonderful

  • I served this at our annual Kentucky Derby party this year - with several revisions - and it was a huge hit First of all, I served it as a punch rather than a slush. I didnt change the citrus ingredients at all but I didnt add the sugar or the tea. People raved about it and when I ran out, they were disappointed It will definitely be a fixture at all future derby parties.

  • Great loved the juicy flavor, however, I think the pineapple overpowered the other flavors, so next batch I will put in less pineapple and make the tea stronger. I loved this drink and we are planning on making a few pitchers of it for vacation

  • This drink recipe is delicious and simple to make. Its great for parties and I keep a batch in my freezer at all times. It goes quickly

  • I doubled the orange juice and added an extra 1 1/2 cups of bourbon to cut out some of the sweetness from all the was a HUGE crowd pleaser

  • While these were very good (everyone loved them New Years Eve), I felt it was a little too sweet for my liking. Next time I think Ill use less sugar (thats just my preference). Great recipe you can make days ahead and forget about until ready to serve

  • Yum

  • Not impressed. Was not that good.

  • Tasty drink and very easy to put together. As other reviewers suggested, I prefer mine with a less sweet mixer: club soda. And though I made my batch in late spring--I think would be a great holiday cocktail. Thanks for the recipe

  • This was AMAZING was skeptical at first because i dont like tea, but WOW followed recipe almost exactly, except didnt measure sugar, just poured until it was sweet enough to our liking. made a double recipe for a slush machine...SO good

  • Delicious as is

  • I did not make any changes, except I have made it with a bourbon other than Makers Mark. It did not have as good a flavor without Makers.

  • Great drink for the pool made just as directed

  • This is just like my Grandma use to make Was a huge hit.

  • I think this is a really good recipe but I have to tell you: you dont need to add sugarI made it for a large group and I knew the lemonade and the orange juice would be sweet on their own. I poured ginger ale over each glass of slush (which is also sweet enough).Everyone loved them. I cannot imagine adding even more sugar to this recipe. You dont need it. I promise

  • This is just like my Grandma use to make Was a huge hit.

  • This is a great summertime drink. You can put it in a gallon plastic drink container with a lid and keep in in the freezer. Scoop out with an ice cream scoop, top with soda to cut the sweetness or pop and garnish with an orange and cherry.YUMMMY

  • I have never been a fan of any kind of whiskey, bourbon or otherwise. But, trust me, THIS slush is THE BEST It is SO light and fruity, and ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS I didnt add any sugar, because I dont like super-sweet drinks (and there is PLENTY of sweetener in the juice concentrates). I also used the whole fifth of bourbon, because.. well.. just because. It isnt a particularly strong slush BEFORE you add the Sprite. Since I tend to mix the slush and Sprite Zero around half and half, it works out GREAT I first made the brandy slush from Southern Living magazine, after a friend sent the recipe to me (it was really good, too). I even made one with rum (it was.. meh). THIS is a KEEPER

  • Super

  • I have made this recipe several times... each a little different. I used decaf tea. My favorite so far is to cut the pineapple juice down to 2 cups and used only a 1/2 cup of sugar. No matter how I make these, they are always a crowd pleaser.

  • Love this recipe - however we dont put the sugar in and find it to be perfect. Its the perfect drink for a hot summer day or evening.

  • I made this 50 years ago, but much simpler, just the OJ, wiskey andice in a blender and done.

  • Intoxicatingly good

  • Ive made this for years and was forced to try it because I didnt like bourbon at all. It converted me. I think the secret is to fill mug or glass with slush, pour another shot of bourbon over it and then add a splash of ginger ale, sprite or champagne, as you prefer. I keep on hand all of the holidays.

  • We have been going through a bucket of these almost every week since I started making it. Great on hot summer days when you want to relax after doing yard work or something We usually mix it with Diet Sundrop.

  • I used a ready made sweet tea, Margarita frozen non-alcoholic, a frozen can of oj, apple & pineapple mix, mango puree and 1.5 Cups of coconut rum along with the 2 Cups of bourbon. Whew It was a huge hit and 1 glass did it, (10oz).

  • This is a very easy and delicious recipe. I ended up only using 1 cup of bourbon and 1 cup of tea (the container I was using was smaller than I thought lol).
