Big Diamond’s Orange Tea Slush

Orange Tea Slush coldteasmall_small.jpg

My sister sent me this recipe, which was a big hit in the expatriate community of Amman, Jordan when we lived there.

Boil together for 10 minutes:
7 cups water
2 cups sugar

Bring 2 cups water to boil, add
4 tea bags – leave for 15 minutes, then remove tea bags and let cool.

1 12 oz an orange juice concentrate
1 12 oz can lemonade concentrate

2 cups brandy, gin, bourbon or vodka

Combine juices, sugar water and tea water. Add liquor. Freeze in gallon container.

7-Up or white soda

To serve: Scoop glass half full of slush mixture, fill with 7 Up or white soda. Garnish with orange, cherry, lemon or pineapple slice, if desired.

My preference is the bourbon. This is perfect for hot summer nights, but we don’t serve this in Kuwait, where alcohol is forbidden.

  1. I’ll try it minus the liquor *smile*

    You’re such a great cook, d’you have any more “summertime” desserts or such yummilicious things that your readers could shamelessly borrow to impress oh, say, one’s saudi neighbors?

  2. Huda, back in December I printed a recipe for a rum punch which is also fantastic sans rum and served cold.

    Cranberry punch

    It’s a little tart and very healthy as well as delicious
