    Brandy Slush Recipe

    Brandy Slush Recipe

    When I was a kid, my dad made brandy slush for him and my mom around Christmas and New Year’s. I fondly remember my father sipping on the icy treat while my brothers and I played next to him in the living room. Now that my dad is gone, I borrowed the recipe from my mom so that I could keep the tradition of making brandy slush during the holidays.


    • 8 cups of water
    • 1 cup of sugar
    • 6 black teabags
    • 12 ounces of frozen orange juice concentrate
    • 12 ounces of frozen lemonade concentrate
    • 2 cups of brandy
    • 7 Up or Sprite


    1. Thaw the orange juice and lemonade.
    2. Combine the sugar with 7 cups of water.
    3. Boil and cool.
    4. Combine the teabags with 1 cup of water.
    5. Boil and cool.
    6. Remove the teabags from the water.
    7. Combine the thawed juice, sugar water, tea, and brandy.
    8. Freeze.
    9. Fill a glass 2/3 full with the frozen mixture.
    10. Add 7 Up or Sprite to fill the remaining glass.
