Kentucky Tea

Updated: Mar 5, 2021

Kentucky Tea blends two of the most quintessential southern libations, bourbon and iced tea, to make a cocktail that is sinfully delicious. It tastes like Sunday afternoon, but will make you feel like Saturday night! By the glass or pitcher, it's the perfect summertime cocktail.


  • 2 oz Kentucky Bourbon

  • 4 oz Peach Tea

  • 1 oz Simple Syrup

  • Lemonade ice cubes (or 2 oz lemonade)

  • Regular ice cubes (optional)

  • Lemon slices (optional)

* To make a pitcher, use 4 cups peach tea, 2 cups bourbon and 1/2 cup of sugar. Stir the sugar into the tea while it's still warm, then add bourbon. Refrigerate at least 2 hours. Add lemonade cubes when serving.


  1. Prepare lemonade ice cubes and keep separate until ready to serve the tea.

  2. Combine bourbon, tea, and simple syrup in a glass and stir to combine.

  3. Add lemonade cubes and stir a few times to get the lemonade flavor mixed in.

  4. Garnish with lemon slices or mint leaves.

  5. Add regular ice cubes as needed to keep the drink cold.

* Turn this into a slush! Just add the ingredients to a blender or Ninja and blend 'til it reaches slushy consistency.


Serve in:

Mason jar or tall glass
