My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Bourbon Slush

What are those things called at the 7-11 store, Slurpys, I think. The ones that give you "brain freeze". This is an adult "bourbon slurpy". It is not a traditional Derby Party beverage, but bourbon anything is traditional in Kentucky at any time. A little sprig of fresh mint in these would not hurt either. Let's get this thoroughbred horse racing season started.

Bourbon Slush
about 5-6 cups
print recipe

1 cup boiling water
2 tea bags
1/2 cup sugar
3 1/2 cups water
1 6-ounce can of frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
1/2 of a 6-ounce can of frozen lemonade, thawed
1/2 -1 cup of good Ky. bourbon, I'd go for the 1 cup

Steep the tea bags in the boiling water for 2-3 minutes. Before tea cools, stir in the 1/2 cup sugar. Add the water, juice concentrates, and bourbon. Pour into a freezer bowl and keep in freezer for 12 hours or longer before serving. This never really freezes; it just turns into a nice slushy consistency.
