New Thing #189: Brandy Slush

Brandy_slush

My friend and consummate host, Kathleen held a great Labour Day Weekend BBQ today at her house in the Boonies. Croquet mallets were swung, shuttlecocks were cocked and the children ran wild. Also, there was drinking, responsibly though since there was a lot of driving involved to get there.

The one thing you can always count on when Kat throws a party though is something delicious and new to eat and/or drink. Usually this manifests itself in some unusually good cookies or cakes, but today it came in booze form: Brandy slush. Almost immediately upon arrival I found a cup of of the frozen treat mixed with 7-Up thrust upon me. 

The only downside to the drink was it’s popularity. By the time it came for a second round it was all used up. Of course I forgot to get the recipe, but I’m sure it’ll show up miraculously in the comments below somehow.
