I remember being served these while I played in the kiddie pool at my great aunt & uncles house in the 70s. I was 5 or 6? It was the seventies, I probably slept on my tummy through my whole infancy, I never wore a seat belt or sat in a car seat, I spent many nights sitting on a bar stool at the American Legion where my mom tended bar a couple nights a week, and I drank brandy slushes in the summer. Not saying that I'm advocating for any of that, just sayin'. Now Micheal and I make them a few times a year when it gets hot out. They are a great hot weather drink. I thought I'd share the recipe. Please note you should make this at least 24 hours before you want to serve it to ensure it is frozen.
4 tea bags
2 C sugar
1 lg. can frozen orange juice, thawed
1 lg. can frozen lemonade, thawed
2 C brandy
Club soda or tonic water, chilled (we like club soda best)
1) In large pot, boil 7 C water. Add sugar and simmer for 2 minutes until all sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.
2) To a separate pot, boil 2 C water, remove from heat and add 4 tea bags. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature, squeeze out tea bags.
