A true gentleman appreciates a good cocktail. And has recipes at hand for at least a few.
Now that summer is here, it’s time to show off your ability to make a great, refreshing summer drink.
Cocktails aren’t just for you, of course, they’re for your guests, too.
One of my summer favorites is a concoction I’ve called “Kentucky Tea.”
Here’s how to make a single:
Place a slice of orange, a slice of lemon, and a slice of lime in the bottom of an Old Fashioned glass. Add just a bit of sugar. Muddle with a spoon to make a citrus paste.
Top with crushed ice.
Add 2 oz. of Bourbon.
Add 3-4 oz. of Iced Tea — I make my tea strong and sweet, so most of the time omit the sugar in the above step. If your tea is not sweetened, do use the sugar.
Garnish with a lime or lemon slice if you like.
Alternatively, you may wish to make Kentucky Tea for a few friends.
Start with 4-5 orange slices, 4-5 lime slices, and 4-5 lemon slices. Top lightly with crushed ice.
Add 8 oz. of your favorite Bourbon.
Add 16 oz. of Tea.
Serve in a tall glass over crushed ice.
Garnish with lime.
So, there you have it. One great recipe for a delicious summer cocktail.
