This is a family favorite and served at holiday gatherings year round. My favorite is to serve it with a splash of Gingerale but 7- Up or Sprite works too. The tea bags are discarded, but the steeped tea gives this slush a nice flavor and makes it not "sickening sweet" as some slush recipes are. The brandy is also key to the flavor, try not substitute another liquor, as it will be worth it. Be sure to plan ahead because it does need to freeze. I usually give it 2 days to make sure it is ready for the holiday event and I always make 2 batches, as 1 is never enough! Enjoy!
