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.
Prepare lemonade ice cubes and keep separate until ready to serve the tea.
Combine bourbon, tea, and simple syrup in a glass and stir to combine.
Add lemonade cubes and stir a few times to get the lemonade flavor mixed in.
Garnish with lemon slices or mint leaves.
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.
Mason jar or tall glass
