Sweet Tea Bourbon Cocktail

This delicious bourbon-based cocktail is easy to make, refreshing to drink, and a lovely way to welcome June, which is National Iced Tea Month.


6 cups of water
4 or 5 black tea bags
1/4 cup agave syrup or honey
1/4 cup of bourbon
4 to 6 sliced orange rounds
6 springs fresh mint


Bring water to a boil. Turn off the heat and add the tea bags. Steep the tea for 3 to 5 minutes. Remove the tea bags, place the tea in a large pitcher, and let it rest in the refrigerator until it’s cold. Place agave, bourbon, orange slices, and fresh mint in a medium bowl and muddle the ingredients using the back of a spoon or a wooden muddler. Add the mixture to the pitcher of tea and stir well. If you like, you can strain the orange wedges and the mint leaves from the mixture before pouring. Fill the glasses with ice. Garnish with mint leaves and an orange wedge and enjoy.
