Brandy Slush Recipe

This sweet and boozy Brandy Slush recipe is a Midwestern classic! Make it ahead for parties or keep it on hand in your freezer indefinitely. 

If you liked the Pink Lemonade Vodka Slush I posted a few weeks ago, you are going to love this Brandy Slush Recipe.

I don’t have as many memories from childhood of this one, and I have never cared for brandy. So, you can imagine my DELIGHT when I realized this is the best drink I have ever had.

As my mom says, it’s “putzy” to make but totally worth it. And it’s not really “putzy.” It’s just a little more work than the Pink Lemonade version.

You start by steeping some tea bags (green tea is popular, black tea is also very delicious).

Stir in sugar, then pour into a 1-gallon plastic ice cream pail (or a similarly sized freezer-safe container) with some frozen juice concentrates, more water, and of course, brandy.

Serve the Brandy Slush with lemon-lime soda (if you want to be traditional) or sparkling water (if you are hoping to have a couple of cheeseburgers or pizzas with your Brandy Slush).

Make this ahead – WAY ahead. A month in advance, if you want. The only exposure to risk is, by the time your party arrives, the Brandy Slush might be gone.

Yep, it’s that good.
