In an earlier post I divulged that bourbon is my drink of choice. I have also found bourbon a terrific ingredient to use in cooking especially marinades. When doing marinades bourbon’s flavor pairs really well with honey, molasses and any flavor of vinegar.
I usually prefer to drink bourbon in the winter months because it is a quick way to get warm from the inside out on a freezing cold day. But here is a really cool way to serve bourbon on those hot steamy summer days. This is really refreshing and fun to drink or eat with a spoon.
Steep 2 teabags in 1 cup boiling water for 2 or 3 minutes. Remove tea bags and add 1 cup sugar, 3 1/2 cups water, orange juice, bourbon and lemonade. Mix and freeze until firm. Remove about 30 minutes before serving. Keep unused portion in freezer.
