Whiskey Sour

Yield Makes about 15 cups
We use brewed tea in this favorite Collins drink, also known as Tennessee Tea when paired with Jack Daniel's whiskey.

Ingredients

  • 4 regular-size tea bags
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 7 cups water
  • 1 (12-ounce) can frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
  • 1 (12-ounce) can frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
  • 2 cups whiskey
  • Lemon-lime soft drink

How to Make It

  1. Combine tea bags and 2 cups boiling water; steep 10 minutes.

  2. Bring sugar, 7 cups water, orange juice concentrate, and lemonade concentrate to a boil in a Dutch oven over medium heat, stirring until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat, and stir in whiskey and tea; cool.

  3. Chill at least 2 hours.

  4. Pour 1/2 cup mixture into a cocktail glass with ice. Fill glass with lemon-lime soft drink. Serve immediately.

  5. Note: For testing purposes only, we used Jack Daniel's whiskey.
