…and Arizona brand bottled sweet tea (four to five ounces for a serving), but any brand will do.  You can also use an unsweet tea, bottled or not, and add an ounce or two of simple syrup, or artificial sweetener if you’re watching carbs and/or calories…

      Hi Shellie, I am too! Not sure I’d drink it with the bourbon every single day, just because there are so many other great cocktails to try too! Thanks so very much for commenting!

        Just a side note…it’s glaring and bothersome to read a recipe for a BOURBON drink made with Tennessee’s Jack Daniels WHISKEY!!!
        This drink should correctly be called, Honey Whiskey Lime Tea. Or better yet, add a BOURBON honey like Evan Williams Honey or Jim Beam Honey or Wild Turkey Honey. (There are many more from which to choose)
        THEN you can enjoy your Honey BOURBON Lime Tea.
