Game Day Cocktails

The Technique

Pineapple-Bourbon Slushies

When a football fanatic pulls out the blender whether it be on the beach or on campus under the game day tent, you know you’re in for a really tasty creation. Pineapple-Bourbon Slushies are simple to prepare & add an exciting twist to the social hour. The base mixture can be made well in advance. When ready to enjoy them, remove the mixture from the freezer, allow it to stand at room temperature for about 20 minutes then blend away until a smoothie-like consistency has been reached. Follow my tips for pulling off this fun twist featuring everyone’s favorite game day team spirit.

Style Points

Heirloom silver demitasse spoons make a sweet addition to this fun game day cocktail.

3 cups sweetened iced tea
3 cups pineapple juice
1 cup orange-tangerine juice
1 cup bourbon
Garnish: Orange curls

Stir together the tea, the pineapple juice, the orange juice & the bourbon. Pour the mixture into two {4-cup} plastic storage containers. Freeze for 12 to 24 hours.

Remove both of the containers from the freezer. Let stand at room temperature 20 to 25 minutes. Place one of the semi-frozen blocks into a large stainless steel bowl & cut it into at least 16 pieces with a chef knife. The mixture will break apart easily into slushy sheets or chunks. Place the blender jar on the base of the blender. Add the icy chunks of the mixture to the blender jar & top with the lid. Place on the Manual setting & move the dial to Speed 8. Push the Start/Stop button to blend at 10 second intervals, stopping to stir the mixture with a long handled wooden spoon, for a total of 30 seconds. The digital clock will count how many seconds have passed in the blending process. Place the remaining semi-frozen block into a large stainless steel bowl. Cut into at least 16 pieces with a chef knife. Add to the blender base container with the rest of the mixture. Continue blending on the Manual setting at Speed 8. Push the Start/Stop button to blend at 10 second intervals, stopping to stir the mixture with a long handled wooden spoon, for a total of 30 seconds. The mixture will have a smooth & creamy sorbet-like texture. Pour or spoon the frozen cocktail into glasses. Garnish, if desired.

The Extra Point

The recipe can be stirred together & served over ice for an equally tasty cocktail creation.
