Warm weather and summertime aren’t the only times to enjoy iced tea, especially when citrus, like limes, is in full season. That’s why today I’m bringing you my Honey Bourbon Lime Sweet Tea recipe.
The name reveals its only three ingredients: honey bourbon, lime juice, and bottled sweet tea.
I used Jack Daniels label Honey Bourbon (one ounce for a serving)….
…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…
…then add freshly squeezed lime juice (one ounce for a serving). That’s it! The citrus and sharpness of the lime offsets the sweet of the honey and tea beautifully. Here’s the recipe:
- One ounce honey-flavored bourbon, such as Jack Daniels' label
- One ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
- Four to five ounces bottled sweet tea (or unsweet tea with one to two ounces simple syrup added)
- Mix all ingredients and serve over ice.
Honey Bourbon Lime Sweet Tea…enjoy!
