A few tips for making this frozen whiskey slush.

Keep the basin of the ice cream maker in your freezer. When you are ready to enjoy a cold drink, just pull it out and add just enough ingredients to make a single cocktail. Or more to serve a crowd. Check out the recipe above for my preferred ratio.

The ice cream maker will need to churn the ingredients for at least 20 minutes. You are aiming for a slush consistency that you can scoop out. I prefer a little liquid left over to make it easier to drink.

If you plan to enjoy these cocktails outdoors on a hot day, consider freezing the mixture longer as it will melt faster outside.
