This brandy slush recipe is SO good! Top with Canada Dry Ginger Ale or 7UP and enjoy!! #MingleNMix #ad #cbiasI am so looking forward to a bit of relaxing during Christmas and New Years. Christmas Eve is going to be spent with my husband's family and this year my sister-in-law decided it was going to be a themed evening - with pjs! When she suggested the idea, I was all for it! A night of relaxing, gift giving, and good food in my Christmas themed pjs? Absolutely! The only thing left to add is a cocktail in my hand. A glass of wine can be nice, but the holidays are special and deserve a special cocktail. 

Christmastime + cocktails = brandy slush! 

For as far back as I can remember, my mom had been making brandy slush in big ice cream containers for holidays parties. Of course as I kid I never had any, but I did fill my glass with Canada Dry Ginger Ale® and 7UP®.

If you have never made brandy slush before, here is a great recipe from my mom. The trick to this drink is having both Canada Dry Ginger Ale® and 7UP® on hand for the mixer. The Canada Dry Ginger Ale® and 7UP® give the brandy slush a unique taste making it either citrus flavored or ginger flavored. 

Brandy Slush Holiday Drink Recipe

This brandy slush recipe is SO good! Top with Canada Dry Ginger Ale or 7UP and enjoy!! #MingleNMix #ad #cbias

  • 2 cups brandy
  • 7 cups cold water
  • 2 cups sugar 
  • 4 tea bags steeped in 2 cups water
  • 12 oz can of frozen orange juice concentrate (thawed)
  • 6 oz of lemonade frozen concentrate (thawed)
  • 6 oz of lime frozen concentrate (thawed)
  • 2-liter bottle each of Canada Dry Ginger Ale® and 7UP®.

Step #1 Steep 4 tea bags in 2 cups of water.

Step #2 Mix together brandy, cold water, and sugar in a stockpot and bring to a boil. Once it boils, turn off the heat.

Step #3 Pour tea into brandy and sugar mixture in stockpot. 

Step #4 Add orange juice, lemonade, and lime concentrate to stockpot and mix well.

Step #5 Once it's slightly cooled, use a glass measuring cup to pour mixture into a gallon ice cream container or divide into smaller freezer safe containers.

Step #6 Freeze for at least 24 hours.

I divided mine into three 5-cup containers so I can use for different parties. Try to keep the brandy slush frozen up until you plan on using it. There is no need to thaw it out since this is a slush anyways.

Scoop a little into your glass and top with either Canada Dry Ginger Ale® or 7UP®. I prefer Canada Dry Ginger Ale®. So, so good.

And once the kids see the Canada Dry Ginger Ale® and 7UP® chilling in the fridge, they will definitely be asking to have some.

Top with Canada Dry Ginger Ale or 7UP and enjoy!! #MingleNMix #ad #cbiasWalmart carries most varieties of both Canada Dry Ginger Ale® and 7UP® in cans and bottles. Instead of using the classic 7UP® you could try this brandy slush topped with Cherry 7UP® - that sounds real good too! 

Are you ready to relax this holiday? Go ahead and try this budget friendly Brandy Slush Holiday Drink Recipe with Canada Dry Ginger Ale® and 7UP® and chances are, while you are sipping your drink on Christmas Eve, I will be too - in my Christmas pjs! Cheers!
