Summer days can be scorching. San Antonio-based Maverick Whiskey Distillery owners, Dr. Kenneth and Dr. Amy Maverick (who have family ties to Samuel Maverick, a signer of the Texas Declaration of Independence and the maverick for whom all other mavericks are named), have shared their family drink recipe for crafting a Maverick Whiskey Bourbon Slush — and just in time to beat the summer heat! We’re excited to post their easy-to-make recipe for you to try at home using their Samuel Maverick Spirits Straight Bourbon Whiskey:

Maverick Whiskey Bourbon Slush Recipe 


1.     Boil together 4 standard sized tea bags with 2 cups of water.

2.     Add 1 ½ cups of sugar and 7 cups of water.

3.     Mix in:

·      12 oz frozen orange juice concentrate

·      12 oz frozen lemonade concentrate

·      2 cups Samuel Maverick Straight Bourbon Whiskey

Mix the ingredients together well, pour into in a container with a tight-fitting lid, and freeze. After frozen and ready to use, scoop into glasses. Garnish with a Luxardo cherry or a sprig of mint. For those who prefer an extra-strong kick, add a bourbon floater on top of the drink. Enjoy!


Maverick Whiskey’s Texas Straight Bourbon Whiskey is distilled from a mash of Texas-grown Corn and Rye. Aged a minimum of 2 years in new Charred White Oak Barrels, this Bourbon is proofed to 88 (44% alcohol by volume) using Reverse Osmosis filtered water so that it sips nicely neat yet holds up on-the-rocks or in your favorite Whiskey cocktail. This Bourbon is non-chill filtered ensuring the true bold flavor of this Texas Whiskey.

The nose is very sweet with notes of Crème Brûlée, caramel, and stone fruit. Charred oak is prevalent as well. The palate is delightfully smooth with notes of sweet black tea, cola, and cinnamon. The finish, while silky, has the peppery bite of Rye and a touch of menthol. Great served neat in a Glencairn or in a nice Old Fashioned complete with Luxardo Cherry.
