Food For Thought Thursday: All American Tea

What could be more patriotic than tea? Remember the Boston Tea Party, ok that's a bit of a stretch but it's just before July 4th and I'm feeling a bit festive. If you know me by now, you know I'm a sucker for a great cocktail. As always, remember to enjoy responsibly.

America Patriot Tea
- 4 cups water
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 8 black tea bags
- 1 lemon, cut into 8 wedges
- 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves
- 2 cups American Honey liqueur

In a large saucepan, boil 4 cups water. Add 1/2 cup sugar; stir to dissolve. Remove from heat; add 8 teabags of black tea. Steep 10 minutes; discard teabags. Add 4 cups cold water; transfer to pitcher and chill. Mash or muddle lemon wedges and add to pitcher. Add 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves. Using a wooden spoon, crush mint until fragrant. Stir in 2 cups of American Honey liqueur. Serve over ice.
