Nothing to see here, guys.
Really, you wouldn’t like this. Who’d want to drink a half-frozen blend of strong tea, lemonade, orange juice and bourbon garnished with fresh mint on a sticky, hot summer day? It might give you a little brain freeze. It would probably feel like liquid air conditioning. It could improve your外表到如此地步，你可能会忘记害怕接下来的热浪。没有什么好可以来此。
Trust me, I know from experience. My friends brought bags of this slush up to their roof last month and I had但也有少数几口脆脆之前我转过身对丈夫说：“我想我开始喜欢在城市的夏天。”他说，“哇。慢下来那里！”我们都认为这是一个非常危险的饮料手头上，我们应该只完成我们的玻璃和最多一个更安全。
我的朋友得到了一本杂志的配方，但由于印刷它的疯狂甜蜜。我结束了调整它，用鲜榨橙汁和柠檬汁代替冷冻浓缩和推荐的糖一半（少，甚至，因为我没有甜甜的等效自制的柠檬水）。The original recipe has you divide the mixture between two gallon-size freezer bags and freeze it until slushy, but my friends complained that this took forever, at least 12 hours in their freezer (your freezer may be colder), and that’s just way too much forethought about a cocktail for me. Plus, I had little doubt that I’d miss the “perfectly slushy” window and end up with a giant ice cube. So, when I make it, I use a base concentrate which is all of the ingredients except the water and you should keep this chilled until needed. And instead of adding water, we used the equivalent weight in ice, which you can blend in a large batch or individual size, as needed. Which might be often this weekend. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

1 cup water
1 1/2 cups orange juice (about 3 well-squeezed oranges)
Boil 1 cup water for tea. Add the tea bags and let steep until cool. Discard the tea bags and set aside. Pour tea into a pitcher. Add bourbon, sugar, orange juice and lemon juice and refrigerate until needed. Don’t worry about stirring the sugar so that it dissolves; after 30 minutes in the fridge, it will have.
To serve: Shake or stir punch base to ensure ingredients are evenly distributed. To make two liters of punch, add base and full amount of ice cubes to your blender, blending until the ice is crushed and slushy. For each individual glass of punch, place 1/2 cup punch base and slightly heaped 1/2 cup small pieces of ice (mine were chipped off an ice block; don’t ask) and blend until slushy. Add an extra whole ice cube or two to glasses if desired. Garnish glass with a sprig of mint or slice of lemon.
