Bourbon Sweet Tea

TM_BK_SMKPICK_AP_004-3

 

INGREDIENTS
3 cups water
½ cup sugar
2 or 3 black tea bags
1 lemon, sliced into wedges
1 lime, sliced into wedges
1 orange, sliced into wedges
1 cup bourbon
Lemon wheels for garnish

INSTRUCTIONS
To make the tea: Combine the water and sugar in a small saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Pour the sugar water into a jar, add the tea bags, and let steep for 5 to 10 minutes, depending on how strong you want your tea. (If you like your tea very strong, leave the bags in the tea for longer.)

Remove the tea bags and add the lemon, lime, and orange wedges. Pour in the bourbon. Cover the jar and chill.

Serve in small glasses and garnish with thin lemon wheels.

Sweet Whiskey Lemonade

INGREDIENTS
2 oz triple sec (I like Cointreau when I can find it on sale)
2 oz whiskey (I used Bushmills Irish Whiskey)
1 and ½ oz lemon juice
⅔ oz lime juice
1 tsp. granulated sugar (super fine sugar is best, but regular baking sugar will do)
½ tsp. apricot preserves
3 oz. tonic water
INSTRUCTIONS
In a shaker, combine all ingredients except tonic water with ice and shake well. Fill two glasses with ice and strain half of the drink mixture into each glass.
Top each glass off with 1 and ½ ounces of tonic water. Serve immediately.
