"I make this with rum instead of brandy and use 2 cans of citrus punch instead of the lemonade and orange juice. It is delicious. I keep some in the freezer all summer. Just add 7up or Spite and enjoy!"

"Your recipe doesn't include the sugar. You need to divide the water - steep tea in 2 cups boiling water. The rest is mixed with 2 c. sugar until boiling and dissolved; then allowed to cool. Mix everything together and freeze. You can add more brandy - I use 3 cups; this will keep it a bit slushier & the edges won't get so hard like another reviewer said. Variations should include a sweet & a sour - hence the lemon & orange combo."

"Love this! I have had a bottle of brandy sitting in the cabinet for a while now and was so excited to find this recipe. It was very good, perfect for summer. Sounds gross, but I also added a splash of citrus vodka with the soda and it was good also."

"I started making this while in college in the 1970's but we used rum instead of brandy. Try it with Blueberrry Vodka."

"Excellent recipe. I've been making it for years. It helps if every couple hours you stir the slush til it's frozen. Otherwise it's extra slushy in the center and hard on the outside."
