Whiskey Sour

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


Makes about 15 cups

Recipe from

Southern Living


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


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

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.

Chill at least 2 hours.

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

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