Larry Tower's Apricot Brandy Slush by Larry Andersen

Apricot Brandy


Once, long, long ago in a snowy Arctic forest,our neighbor, Larry Tower, came to Thanksgiving supper. He brought the evening's libations. He provided a long standing traditional Tower family recipe for apricot brandy slush. Some thirty years prior he was given the recipe by a cousin. He doesn’t know anything about its history before then. Warm hearts aglow from the apricot brandy slush, celebrating good friends and good food, a good time was had by all that Thanksgiving night and a new chapter in the history of the Tower Family Apricot Brandy Slush was written.
