Party time! Make the slush ahead, and all that's needed is a quick stir with ginger ale just before serving.

Ingredients

1
medium cantaloupe, seeded, rind removed and flesh cut up
1
(12-oz.) container frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
1/3
cup powdered sugar
1
cup finely chopped fresh mint
1 1/2
cups water
1 1/2
cups bourbon
8
cups ginger ale, chilled

Steps

  • 1 In food processor bowl with metal blade, combine cantaloupe flesh, lemonade concentrate and powdered sugar; process until smooth. Stir in mint. Place mixture in medium bowl; let stand at room temperature for 1 hour.
  • 2 Strain mixture into 2-quart nonmetal freezer container, pressing mint with spoon to remove as much liquid as possible. Discard mint. Stir water and bourbon into melon mixture. Cover; freeze 6 to 8 hours or until icy, stirring twice.
  • 3 To serve, spoon 1/2 cup frozen mixture into each glass. Add 1/2 cup ginger ale to each glass; stir gently.
