2 slushies


  • 1 lemon, halved

  • 3 fluid ounces whiskey

  • 1 ½ fluid ounces orange liqueur

  • ¾ fluid ounce simple syrup

  • 2 cups lightly crushed ice


  1. Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler. Place lemon halves, cut-side up, on a baking sheet.

  2. Broil until lemon halves are blackened on the cut side, about 10 minutes. Allow lemons to cool enough to handle. Squeeze juice from the lemons into a measuring cup. Measure out 1 fluid ounce broiled lemon juice, reserving the rest for another use.

  3. Combine whiskey, orange liqueur, simple syrup, and 1 fluid ounce broiled lemon juice in a blender and add ice; cover and blend until slushy consistency. Pour drinks into glasses.
