Blackberry Brandy Slush

and Norms Farms Elderflower Syrup

Here in Wisconsin, we sure do love a good Brandy Slush. The Wisconsin Brandy Slush is a Midwestern classic and a Wisconsin family favorite. This simple recipe has been handed down in families and was even published in the Milwaukee Sentinel in 1981.  Popular at Christmas, bridal showers, football games and perfect for barbecues, special occasions or lazy summer days spent at the lake. The Brandy Slush is a perfect summertime or
anytime drink. This recipe for Blackberry Brandy Slush replaces regular brandy used with Blackberry Brandy.

What is a Brandy Slush?

A Brandy Slush is a delicious, frozen blend of fruit juice, lemonade, tea and of course, Brandy. The icy mix is then topped off with your favorite sparkling soda. Brandy Slush can be made with plain brandy or just about any flavored brandy you can find….a few of our favorite flavored brandies to use are: Apricot Brandy, Apple Brandy, and Blackberry Brandy. With a few simple fruit juice changes, a change in the flavored brandy, and you’ll have a new and delicious slushy.

Our new version of the traditional Brandy Slush is the Blackberry Brandy Slush. It’s topped off with a fantastic syrup called:  Elderflower Syrup and/or Elderflower Ginger Syrup. A Craft Soda Syrup & Cocktail Mixer from Norm’s Farms * Pittsboro* North Carolina

What is Elderflower Syrup?

Elderflower Syrup is made in small batches and uses organic elderflowers that add a succulent and delicious flavor to sparkling water, cocktails, sorbets, cakes and so much more. I enjoy elderflower syrup in my afternoon cup of hot tea, in place of my usual organic honey. Elderflower Syrup is deliciously different. Drizzled over a tall glass of Blackberry Brandy Slush, Perfection! Blackberry Brandy Slush is a wonderful drink to sip, on a hot muggy, Midwestern summer evening.

Great for Dessert

Elderflower Syrup or Elderflower Ginger Syrup, would be delicious on a cake that is normally soaked in alcohol. The two types of cakes that come to mind are: Christmas fruit cake and English layered trifle. Replace some of the alcohol called for in your favorite recipe with Elderflower Syrup or Elderflower Ginger Syrup, for a fantastic and different taste sensation.
