Bourbon Slush

9 cups water, divided
3 black tea bags (or 1 family size)
1 cup sugar
12 oz frozen lemonade concentrate
6 oz frozen orange juice concentrate
2 cups bourbon

ginger ale, chilled, for serving

In a small saucepan, bring 2 cups of water to a boil.  Add the tea bags and steep for 10 minutes.  Discard the bags.  Stir in the sugar until it dissolves.

In a large container, combine the sweet tea, lemonade and orange concentrates, 7 cups of water, and 2 cups of bourbon.  Place in freezer for a minimum of 6 hrs, but preferably overnight, until the slush is firm all the way through.

For serving: scoop slush into a tumbler, top with ginger ale, stir and serve with a straw.

Recipe doubles well.
