I've found the perfect summer cocktail and it's a bit of an heirloom. This recipe has been passed down from generation to generation. My mom and her friends used to keep a stash of Bourbon Slush in their freezers for impromptu get togethers in the summer (because you know, mom life). And, now, this is my go-to drink for parties, no matter what the weather. It's always been known as Bourbon Slush but I have often substituted whiskey and it tastes delicious, too!

Momtrends Tip: I use a Stainless Bowl from Williams-Sonoma) and the slush will remain fresh all summer long. However, I highly doubt it will take you that long to enjoy it all.
How to Serve
Serve in a margarita glass with a maraschino cherry garnish. Or if you're a lightweight like my mom, scoop some slush into a high ball glass and fill with 7-UP. Then all you need to do is enjoy the summer night and thank my relatives for passing this along.
