Fight off that winter cold or just making a grey day a little brighter!
Meal Type:Alcoholic Beverage
- 2 tbsp Earl Grey Tea
- 2 cups water
- 1-2 oz of your favorite bourbon
- 4 tbsp lemon juice
- 2 tbsp honey (or more depending on taste)
Bring water to a boil in a saucepan or kettle. Place tea leaves in a large infuser inside a tea pot and poor water over leaves; or simply remove the saucepan from heat and add the leaves directly to the pan to steep. Allow tea to steep for 4 ½ minutes. After about 3 minutes add the lemon juice and honey. Add 1/2-1 oz. of bourbon to two coffee mugs and pour the tea mixture over each. (If steeping tea directly in the saucepan, be sure to strain the tea through a sieve or cheesecloth before adding to coffee mugs). Garnish with a slice of lemon.
