Tuesday’s Treats: Southern Recipe: Smooth Sweet Tea with a kick….

Ingredients Needed:

2 Cups Boiling Water

6-10 Tea Bags (Depends on the strength)

6 Cups of Cool Water

3/4 of White Sugar or you can substitute with honey ( I prefer Honey)

1 Lemon

2-3  Mint Leaves

1/2 Cup of  Kentucky Bourbon

Prep time 5 |Mins Cook Time 15 mins| Ready in 3 Hours

Grab your favorite tea pitcher and get ready for some sweet tea but with a nice kick!

Boil your two cups of water make sure whichever pitcher you use won’t melt!  Pour your water into the pitcher, and then add your tea bags. You need to let the tea steep for 15 mins. If you’re a tea connoisseur and you prefer loose leaf, be sure to have a strainer that can hold your tea while you let it steep. (Cover while steeping)

Once its steep you should have a nice rich color for your tea. Pour in the cold water, squeeze in your one lemon. (Unless you prefer to use as garnish) Then add your sugar/and or honey, along with your half of cup of bourbon.

I like to add my mint leaves after I’ve let it sit in the fridge for 3 hours. But its totally up to you!
