Summertime Drink recipe

Summer is here, and I wanted to share one of my favorite summertime drink recipes.  It’s great for a picnic or to have in your freezer for when guests drop by unexpectedly.  You can make a non-alcoholic version by substituting 2 cups of Apricot nectar for the Apricot Brandy.

Apricot Brandy Slush


5 cups of boiling water

4 Tea bags

1 cup of sugar

1- 12oz can of frozen orange juice

1- 12oz can of frozen lemonade

2 cups of Apricot brandy

1 (2 liter) bottle of 7-up, or other lemon-lime flavored soda


Pour 2 cups of the boiling water into a small bowl and steep tea bags in this for 10 minutes.  Place remaining 3 cups of boiling water in a large bowl.  Stir in the sugar until dissolved.  Stir in the orange juice concentrate,  lemonade concentrate and the brandy.  Remove tea bags and stir tea into mixture.  Freeze overnight.

To serve, scoop desired amount into a glass, then fill the rest of the glass with the soda, and stir.
