Since we were grilling out, and having some family over, we decided this would be good to try. Family are the best tasters, right?
1/2 cup loosely packed fresh mint leaves
1 lemon, sliced
2 tablespoons sugar (I had simple sryup.)
3 cups cold sweetened tea
1 cup bourbon
Garnish: fresh mint sprigs
How to Make It:
Combine first 3 ingredients in a 2-qt. pitcher. Press mint leaves against sides of pitcher with back of spoon to release flavors. Stir in tea and bourbon. Serve over crushed ice. Garnish, if desired.
I thought this would be a refreshing twist on tea for the afternoon.
