Serious Eats: Recipes

Bourbon Slush

Our first Cook the Book column of 2011 is going to feature Amanda Hesser's newly released The Essential New York Times Cookbook, a compilation favorite recipes spanning the paper's 160 years. As an intro to the feature we thought we'd bring you a sneak peak: a Bourbon Slush perfect for New Year's Eve.

This sweet and slushy cocktail of bourbon, black tea, citrus, and ginger ale is made just like a granita: Simply freeze, scrape, stir, and repeat until the desired texture is reached. It's a fun, almost desserty cocktail that can either be sipped, spooned, or both.
