This recipe is adapted from my friend Heather’s Brandy Slush recipe. She made Brady Slush for me this past January while I was visiting Wisconsin. I nearly became Brandy Slush after way too much cold weather and alcohol consumption. I thought it would be nice to adapt this recipe for the Tex Mex dinner I made while they were here. I used the same proportions but added tequila and triple sec. These drinks are basically adult snow cones – and who can complain about that? We enjoyed the Margarita Slush on my porch Southern style before dinner Saturday night.
- 1 1/2 cups tequila
- 1/2 cup triple sec
- 1 can orange juice frozen concentrate
- 1 can margarita mix frozen concentrate
- 8 cups water
- sugar to taste
Assembly: Start 24 or 48 hours in advance. Mix everything together in a large plastic bowl or tub that can be liquid sealed. Freeze for 24 hours. If you are making 48 hours in advance – take the mixture out after 24 hours – mix – and then add back to the freezer to help crystallize.
