I know this Apple Bourbon Slush is a frozen drink, which I guess are typically served in the hotter weather, but it has bourbon and cider in it so that makes it a Fall drink in my book.
I first tasted frozen cider at an amusement park that we took the kids too. It was so amazingly good – my first thought was, of course – to add some alcohol and make it an adult beverage.
We literally stopped at the grocery store on the way home and grabbed a gallon of cider to test it out.
And there’s really no freezing involved, you just blend it up in the blender with some ice and it turns into a cider slush beverage right in front of your eyes. Our blender is my new favorite tool in the kitchen, especially when it comes to mixing drinks. I never knew that there could be such a difference in how blenders work until we got this Breville Hemisphere Blender. It will actually turn ice into a fine powder like you’d use to make a snow cone…or a frozen boozy slush drink like the Apple Bourbon Slush.
I used the Berentzen Bushel & Barrel Apple Bourbon again in this drink and some Smirnoff Caramel Vodka. The caramel vodka makes this Apple Bourbon Slush not only taste like a boozy apple drink, but a boozy caramel apple drink.
If you’re a bourbon drinker, definitely try some of Berentzen’s new Bushel & Barrel Apple Bourbon. It’s perfect for sipping neat, added to hot cider, or any drinks that you would normally mix with bourbon.
Caramel dipped apple as garnish totally optional. But you know I always try to serve a snack with my drinks! You could just steal some slices from that Bourbon Caramel Apple Dip you’ll have out – because there’s never too much bourbon!
