This is a great party drink but I messed it up a little by trying to multiply the recipe. Next time I'll make it in small batches and pay closer attention to how long the tea steeps. I let it go longer than 10 minutes and the tea flavor overpowered the lemonade, mint, and bourbon.
Bourbon-Lemonade Iced Tea
Enjoy a spiked version of your favorite summer thirst quencher. Lemonade and Iced Tea always pair together perfectly and in this recipe they get a kick from the bourbon.
