A cocktail recipe this delicious just calls out for a long afternoon, a shady porch and a rocking chair.

Paula Jones Recipe by Paula Jones
September 13, 2012

Ingredients

2
cups chilled sweet iced tea
6
tablespoons bourbon (3 oz)
4
to 8 slices Meyer lemon
6
to 12 small sprigs fresh mint
Ice

Directions

  • 1 In pitcher, mix tea, bourbon, lemon slices and mint sprigs.
  • 2 Fill 2 lowball glasses with ice. Pour tea mixture over ice.

Expert Tips

Add the desired amount of lemon and mint to taste. For a stronger lemon-mint flavor, muddle the fruit and mint sprigs in the pitcher before adding the tea and bourbon. You can strain out the fruit and mint before serving, and garnish with additional lemon slices and mint sprigs, if you like.

Straight bourbon, rather than blended, is recommended for this drink. Increase the amount of bourbon, if desired, for a stronger drink.

If you can’t find a Meyer lemon, substitute orange slices or regular lemon.
