Drink of The Weekend – July 19th

- Bourbon & Tea -

Welcome to the next edition of  the FANFOOD Drink of the Weekend. Every weekend we will provide you with recipes for great drinks that are perfect for your backyard BBQ, or at your next tailgate party.

 

This week it’s a B and Tea

 

This recipe comes from Bobby Flay and is a great mix of Bourbon, Black Tea, fresh fruit juices and mint syrup.  I have my own go-to B&T that is mush less complicated and will post it soon after I teach you how to make the secret ingredient (which is much more complicated) Confused? Just make this one and compare it to mine in a couple of weeks.

1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
