Drinks To Love this February

A nameless razor fusses.

SOUR MASH and LIME TEA

This is a delectable variation on a Southern Sour with a twist mix of taste.

INGREDIENTS:
  • 6 regular-size tea bags (about 1/2 oz. total)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 can(6oz) frozen limeade concentrate, thawed
  • 12 oz. sour-mash whisky(such as Jack Daniel's), or any good bourbon(about 1 1/2 cups)
  • Lime wedges for garnish(optional)
Easy to make:
  1. IN A MEDIUM SAUCEPAN:  Bring 4 cups water to boil.  Add the tea bags, remove from the heat, cover, and steep for 15 minutes.
  2. MEANWHILE:  Put the sugar and limeade concentrate in a 2-quart heatproof container (like a large PYREX liquid measure).
  3. When the tea is ready, remove the tea bags(don't squeeze them) and add the tea to the limeade mixture, stirring to combine.
  4. Stir in 3 cups cold water, let cool to room temperature, and then refrigerate until ready to serve.
  5. TO SERVE:  Pour 1 1/2 oz of the whiskey into each 12-oz. glass.  Add 1 cup of the limeade-tea mixture to each glass.   Stir to combine.  Add the garnish with the lime wedges, if you like.
