3 Bourbon Cocktail Recipes for an End-of-Summer Blowout

Loaded Palmer Batch Cocktail

The one bad thing about summer: Eventually it has to end. But you can fight those end-of-summer-blues by throwing a kickass bash. To do that, though, you need to serve some unforgettable cocktails.

That’s where Rebel Yell comes in. From a lemony slush to a rebellious tea to bourbon punch that packs a punch, we put together three crowd-pleasing recipes to ensure your party is one for the record books. So gather your closest friends, press play on your favorite Spotify party playlist, and start mixing.

Rebel Slush
1 (6 ounce) can frozen orange juice concentrate
1 (12 ounce) can frozen lemonade concentrate
1 (46 ounce) can pineapple juice
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 cups strong brewed black tea
2 cups Rebel Yell Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
1 (2 liter) bottle lemon-lime flavored soda

In a large bowl or container, mix together the orange juice concentrate, lemonade concentrate, pineapple juice, sugar, tea, and whiskey. Transfer to shallow bowls or dishes, and freeze overnight. Remove the frozen mixture from the freezer and let stand for about 10 minutes. Chop with a wire whisk or potato masher to make a slushy consistency. Place scoops of the frozen slush into glasses and top off with the lemon-lime flavored soda.

Loaded Palmer

50 ounces iced tea
50 ounces lemonade
Lemons for garnish

Add all ingredients to a 1-gallon beverage dispenser and stir. Serve in glasses over ice. Garnish with lemon wedge.

12 ounces blackberry brandy
12 ounces simple syrup
48-64 mint sprigs
48-64 blackberries
64 ounces watermelon juice

In a batch container, muddle blackberries and mint with simple syrup. Add all other ingredients and stir. Serve in glasses over ice.
