Merciful God, You are great in compassion and Your tenderness for us is without measure. We ask You to give us today our daily bread, and also provide for the needs of all of Your hungry children around the world. Through Christ Your Son and Our Lord. Amen.

Brandy Slush

.
This is one recipe I just love to have hanging around in my freezer. In the summer, when the kids go to bed (or not), and Doug and I are chilling out or watching a movie, I grab an old-fashioned glass, get the ice cream scoop, and fillerup. Top with a splash of Sprite and it's so refreshing -- a lovely summer nightcap!

Brandy Slush

9 cups water
1½ cups sugar
4 tea bags
12 oz. frozen orange juice
12 oz. frozen lemonade
½ cup whiskey
1½ cups apricot brandy

Mix water and sugar and bring to a boil.
Steep tea bags in hot water for 5 minutes.
Cool. Add orange juice and lemonade and alcohol.
Freeze for 36 hours.
Fill glass halfway with slush and add 7-Up or Sprite.

That sounds ultimate refreshing. Summer is around here and now I am heading towards the refrigerator, you know why, don't you?

Oh wow, that sounds delicious. An alcoholic Arnie Parmer, my favourite! :) I could see how that could make a Midwest summer evening! Hope you're recovering... thinking of you!

Barbara,

I have a very similar recipe that's quite addictive, but I've never tried it with whiskey and apricot brandy. Mine calls for just plain brandy. Hmmmm, there's a liquor store on the way home from work . . .
