How I love tea. You, too? The only thing better than a nice, cold glass of sweet iced tea is a tea with a little something extra. Bourbon Mint Tea, for example. It’s the fresh mint leaves that stole my heart!

Back Porch Bourbon Tea

I dare you to look at these ingredients and not drool, at least a little. Blood oranges, lemons, limes, liqueur, mint, and Jim Beam … oh my. It’s too perfect. A little sweet, a little citrus, a nice little kick – and wow!

This is not a last-minute drink, though. It’s probably not the best recipe to make when friends pop by unannounced. You’ll need to add the fruit to the tea to allow it to infuse overnight.

You’ll need to give it a good shake with a cocktail shaker. But as I’ve said before, a Mason Jar with a lid will do just fine.
