Mint Julep Iced Tea

Since we’re still in the month of June and this is iced tea month, try this one when you’re sitting outside on a hot summer’s night gazing up at the stars. Just don’t drink too many as you might see stars when you wake up in the morning!


3 cups boiling water
6 tea bags
1 tbsp mint jelly
Lime juice
2 cans (12 oz each) ginger ale, chilled
6 oz bourbon (or more if you’re like me!), chilled
Fresh mint leaves


Pour boiling water over tea bags and let steep for 5 minutes. Remove bags and pour hot tea over the mint jelly, stirring to dissolve.

Cover and refrigerate.

When ready to serve, dip rim of glass into the lime juice and then into sugar to frost.

Fill glasses half full of tea; add one ounce of bourbon and crushed ice. Fill with ginger ale to the frost line and garnish with fresh mint!

Also a nice way to top off the Fourth of July BBQ if you haven’t been partying all day, that is!
