I've made this recipe twice. The first time I followed the directions, however, it was much too sweet. It says to add lemon-lime soda like Sprite or such instead of the bourbon. But adding the soda even with the bourbon actually makes this drink drinkable. Using just the pineapple juice, lemonade and limeade was not enough. You need to cut it with a soda like Sprite. Once that's added, it's so good, and with it being slushy, it makes any occasion seem special!
