ENTERTAINING

Bourbon slush
Even though most of us still have temperatures in the 90s, Labor Day is kind of the last big celebration of Summer. I've always thought of it as the Summer's "going away party." A weekend to reminisce of memories made over the last few months and talks of what we hope the Fall and Winter will bring.

We started a Labor Day tradition with some of our great friends a few year ago. We spend the weekend at Kentucky Lake. We rent houses and enjoy boating during the day and grilling and relaxing at night. It's the perfect way to end the Summer.

I'm sure most of you will be celebrating the Holiday weekend, so I thought I would share two delicious frozen drink recipes with you. They are both Helleny family recipes and always a huge hit when they are served.

If you make them, make sure to post a picture on Instagram or Twitter and tag me so I can see! I hope you enjoy these recipes as much as we do!

    That bourbon slush is a football game tradition where I went to school! Even when it was snowing out, we’d drink it. :) Will have to try the other one some day – thanks for sharing!
