We picked up a bottle of bourbon the other day and I wanted to try something from our usual mix and went in search of bourbon cocktails. When I saw the Palmer Park Swizzle cocktail, I was intrigued. Super easy to make and low-carb customizable, it seemed like a great refreshing summer drink.
And it was, it is like a bourbon sour, but I think the small step of steeping the teabag in the bourbon adds a wonderful touch.
- 1 cup bourbon
- 1 black tea bag
- 1 ounce fresh lime juice
- Stevia liquid
- 8 mint leaves
- 1 mint sprig, for garnish
- Steep the teabag in the cup of bourbon for an hour.
- Fill a shaker with ice and add the lime juice, a squirt of the liquid Stevia, mint leaves and 2 ounces of the tea-infused bourbon; shake well.
- Strain into an ice-filled collins glass and garnish with the mint sprig; serve immediately.
