Ingredients

  • 32 oz cranberry juice
  • 1 liter 4 1/4 cups Ginger Ale
  • 1 1/2 cups lemon simple syrup see notes for recipe)
  • 2 cups Bourbon

Instructions

  • Combine all ingredients together in a pitcher or large pot or bowl. Place in freezer and freeze overnight or up to 30 days. As it begins to freeze up, stir it every couple of hours.

Notes

Typically making simple syrup is a 1 to 1 ratio...one part water to one part sugar (1 cup water / 1 cup sugar) however for this recipe, I make it a little less sweet.
Here is the recipe for Lemon Simple Syrup:
1 cup water
Juce of 1 lemon
1/2 cup sugar
Heat the above in a small saucepan and stir just until sugar melts. Cool.
Can be stored in the refrigerator in a sealed mason jar or container until ready to use.
The better the Bourbon...the better the Bourbon slush. No need to use your best stuff, just don't use the cheapest :)
