    I LOVE Brandy Slush in the summer. I can’t believe I haven’t made it yet this summer. My recipe is a little different.
    In a pot bring 2 cups water, 2 cups sugar to a boil. Place in 4 green tea bags and boil for 5 to 7 minutes. In a 1 gallon pail mix 1-12 ounce can of frozen lemonade, 1-12 ounce can of frozen orange juice, 7 cups water and 3 cups brandy. Mix in the tea mixture and freeze for 2-3 days stirring 2 times a day.
    Scoop some into a cup after it’s slushy and add 7-up (or something similar). Mix and drink.

    It does make a LOT, but the slush mix just sits in the freezer and you just get individual servings out of it as you want it.

    I think I’m going to have to go make some now! LOL

    So…how does it get slushy if you let the lemonade and orange juice thaw? I assume you freeze it, but how long? I’m thinking of making it for a party, but need to know how far ahead of time to make it (so it’s not a frozen brick if I freeze it too long!).

    It has to store in the freezer, there’s no such thing as freezing it too long. It it never becomes “a frozen brick”. Alcohol doesn’t freeze so the brandy keeps it in a softer frozen form. Now, if you tried to make this without alcohol, that would be a bit different. Also, have you ever noticed that concentrate frozen juices aren’t as solid as say, ice cubes? But it DOES take awhile to freeze so I’d make it at least 48 hours (2 nights) before you want to serve it. And make sure you have room in your freezer for a large container.

About Me

There is nothing worse than writing a bio. And writing one for your blog sidebar? Blech. Maybe you landed here via Google, followed me from Twitter (does that make you a stalker?) or maybe we met at a conference or you clicked a link from a comment I made at a blog you visited. Hopefully whatever I said didn't make you so mad you came looking for a picture to throw darts at (yep, that's me up above, in my favorite cowboy hat) but instead drove you to find out more about the amazingly witty and intelligent person behind the amazingly witty and intelligent comment.

However you found me, who you found is Angela James, executive editor of Carina Press, Harlequin's new digital-first press. I'm passionate about digital publishing, my mission is to drag people to the digital dark side, one reader (and author) at a time. I'm also Brianna's mommy. At my blog you'll get an odd mix of personal and professional posts about parenting, publishing, books, cooking, sewing and life in general. Come back often, comment frequently and go green—buy ebooks!

Please note that this is my personal blog and my opinions are neither that of Harlequin, nor representative of their opinions.

First, I blog once or twice a week at theCarina Press blog, talking about the job, the authors, the books and other things Carina Press. And, of course, you can always find me on Twitter. Or Facebook, if you prefer (mostly the same content, one feeds the other). I also run the Carina Press Twitter and Facebook accounts. Social media, it's where it's at (well, it's where I'm at, anyway).
