Frozen Old Fashioned Slush Recipe
This Frozen Old Fashioned Slush recipe takes the classic cocktail to a new, and dare I say it, much cooler level. Made with bourbon, this a refreshing and flavorful slush recupe that can be served any time of the year.
- 6 cups water
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 cups bourbon - (My favorite is Four Roses.)
- 12 ounces (one can) frozen orange juice concentrate - thaweed
- 2 tablespoons Luxardo cherry juice*
- 1/4 cup bitters
- Lemon-lime soda - (1/4 cup per serving)
- Orange slice and Luxardo cherries*
Start by adding the water and sugar to a large saucepan. Stir continuously and bring to a boil. Cook until the sugar is dissolved. This will take about five minutes. Allow to cool completely.
Next, stir in the bourbon, orange juice concentrate, cherry juice, and bitters. Pour this mixture into a freezer-safe baking dish that will hold at least 3 quarts. Freeze for 10-12 hours or overnight. If possible, stir the mixture with a fork once or twice during the freezing process.
To serve, place about 3/4 cup of the Old Fashioned mixture in a glass. Top with about 1/4 cup lemon-lime soda. Garnish with an orange slice and a cherry.
For this recipe, I used Luxardo Cherries. These can be a bit expensive. If you prefer, you can substitute maraschino cherries. For the substitution, use 1/4 cup maraschino cherry juice in place of the 2 tablespoons Luxardo cherry juice.
