Make this for a hot summer day--you won't regret it. I halved the bourbon so I can drink it all afternoon and still have my wits about me. Also delicious without any bourbon. So good!!!

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.

Excellent drink for a group get-together or just a summer day. Easy and so yummy! I also made a separate batch and reduced the bourbon a bit and made up the rest with peach schnapps - YUM!
