A Frozen Tea Cocktail

This refreshing tea cocktail  has been a family favorite for many years.   It was my mom's recipe and she kept a frozen container in the freezer to be served at a moment's notice when company dropped by.  We fondly call it "Slush".

2 C boiling water
4 teaspoons loose tea or 4 teabags
1 C sugar
1 large can frozen  orange juice concentrate
1 large can frozen lemonade concentrate
7 C water
2 C vodka

Brew tea in 2 cups of boiling water.  Add cup of sugar to brewed tea and stir until sugar is dissolved.  Stir in remaining ingredients and freeze in covered container.  Due to the alcohol content, it will not freeze solid but will be of a a "slushy" consistency. Use ice cream scoop to fill glasses and garnish.  You can also serve with a spoon.  Can be enjoyed any time of the year but is especially refreshing on a hot summer evening!
