About this Cocktail

This is a cocktail I created for use at Blackberry Farm, a Relais & Chateaux resort located in Walland, TN. This cocktail was made for a large event. Not only is it a great way to beat the heat but if you are serving multiple guests you can pre-make a lot of this cocktail for fast easy service.

  • 1.5 oz. Buffalo Trace Bourbon Whiskey
  • .5 oz. Simple Syrup (2:1 ratio)
  • 3 oz. Unsweetened Tea
  • Handful of fresh garden mint
  • 1 lemon wheel
  • 1 fresh garden mint sprig topper

In an empty mason jar add a handful of fresh garden mint and simple syrup. Muddle gently and then fill the jar with crushed ice. Add the bourbon and tea. Stir to mix. Garnish with the mint topper and lemon wheel.
