Sweet like Honey

 

Ever the Derby fans, we believe that mint juleps go with so much more than a day at the races. Our favorite? This summer twist on the traditional julep.

Still a decidedly southern drink,  this derby inspired cocktail will become your warm weather go-to – derby or no derby.

(Recipe inspired by True Food Kitchen)

Ingredients:

  • Bourbon of your choice
  • Black tea
  • Honey
  • Lemon (for garnish)

Directions:

Brew the black tea and mix in 1 tbs of honey into the tea. Let cool in the refrigerator for a few hours. Pour into a glass two parts bourbon and fill the rest of the cup with the black tea.  Add ice and garnish with a peel of lemon. Stir and enjoy!
