This is one of my Mom's recipes that she served at all her Holiday parties and is a great make ahead recipe. Prep time does not include freezing time. I'm not sure about the serving size since she always seemed to have plenty for everyone.

Great tasting !! I took Laurie41 advice and added some bourbon. Well enjoyed the the other half and myself. Made for Gimme 5.

this is delicious, since this was the first time trying this I reduced to half and only used a small amount of whiskey, and used 1 tea bag, this would be a great summertime drink that I will make again, thanks for sharing hon!...Kitten:)

I made this up but before adding the whiskey, set some aside without it, then added the entire cup to the rest...then invited the neighbors over today for a cocktail. Needless to say they enjoyed theirs and all are resting very Sweet EddieBear and I had Virgin drink and enjoyed that also...but wonder why we aren't asleep yet...roflmbo. I would make the virgin up again just for the two of us anyday as it is quite good even without the whisky. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
