Bourbon Mint Iced Tea
Why I Love This Recipe
Even though I'm not much of a fan of Bourbon -- I LOVED this drink!
Ingredients You'll Need
1 lemon, cut into 8 wedges
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup mint leaves
1/2 cup fresh orange juice (4 ounces)
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice (4 ounces)
1 cup bourbon (8 ounces)
1 quart plus 1 cup unsweetened iced tea (40 ounces)
In a two-quart pitcher, muddle or mash the lemon wedges, sugar and mint leaves with a large wooden spoon until a thick syrup forms.
Add the orange juice, lemon juice and bourbon and stir to combine.
Fill the pitcher with ice cubes and add the iced tea, then stir to combine.
