For a little beverage action on Derby Day. Mint Julep Iced Tea is quite good.
Sweet and refreshing, with a bourbon kick!
- 1 quart-sized tea bag
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp mint flavoring
- Kentucky-brand bourbon
- Fresh mint to garnish (optional)
Brew tea in 3 cups (or so) of water; allow to steep until very strong. Remove tea bag, squeezing out all the goodness, and stir in sugar and flavoring. When ready to serve, fill glass with ice, pour in tea, and top with desired amount of bourbon (I used about 3/8 cup). Stir and top with sprig of mint if desired.
