Happy National Bourbon Day, y'all!
Here's a recipe for a delicious punch that will let you beat the heat with two of Kentucky's favorite flavors -- Woodford Reserve and Ale-8 -- and a tangy citrus twist. You can serve it in a punch bowl for a party or picnic, or keep in the freezer to scoop out as you like!
- 6 cups water
- 2 cups strong tea
- 2 cups Woodford Reserve
- 3/4 cup sugar or Splenda
- One 6-ounce container frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
- Two 6-ounce containers frozen lemon juice concentrate, thawed
- Ale-8-1 or Diet Ale-8
Combine the water, tea, bourbon, sugar, orange and lemon juice concentrate in a large container or bowl, and mix until sugar dissolves.
Pour into two gallon-size freezer bags or large covered plastic container. Freeze overnight. Scoop slush into glasses and top with Ale-8. Garnish with mint sprigs.
Happy National Bourbon Day, and cheers, y'all!
