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 but there definitely is.
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.
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!
