Recipe: Blackberry and Black Tea Bourbon

Glass type: hurricane, old-fashioned, or pilsner

Makes 2 cocktails

  • 1 tea bag or 1 teaspoon loose leaf black tea
  • ¼ cup fresh blackberries
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped mint, plus a few whole mint leaves for garnish
  • 4 ounces bourbon
  • ½ cup crushed ice

 To make the tea, brew in 8 ounces (about 1 mug) of boiling water for about 3 minutes.

Remove tea bag or leaves and place brewed tea in the refrigerator to chill.

In a small bowl, muddle the blackberries, sugar, and chopped mint and then divide between 2 glasses. In a shaker, combine the chilled tea, bourbon, and ice. Shake for about 30 seconds and then pour into glasses. Stir each glass lightly and then garnish with mint leaves.
