Bourbon Lime Tea

If you're searching for a new way to enjoy your favorite summer beverage, give this one a try! Wait, sweet tea isn't your favorite summer beverage? Well, it is mine so give this one a try to humor me! You don't want the bourbon? That's fine. With this recipe, you can simply add a shot (or a little more) to each 12 oz. glass and stir to combine right as you're serving. Trust me, even without the bourbon this is an excellent summer time beverage.

6 cups water
3 family sized tea bags (or 9 regular sized)
3/4 cup sugar
6 cups water
1 can frozen limeade (thawed)
Your favorite bourbon

Bring the first six cups of water to a boil. Add tea bags, cover, and remove from heat. Let steep 15 minutes or so.

Remove tea bags and pour tea into large pitcher.

Add sugar and stir until well combined. Add thawed limeade and stir.

Add remaining six cups of water and stir.

Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Pour into ice filled glasses, and if desired, add a shot of bourbon and stir.  Depending on the size of your glasses, you may need to add a little more than a shot!
