Foodie Swellness: Berry bourbon iced tea

Iced tea cocktail

In the summer, at home I’ll typically enjoy a Moscow mule, Pimm’s cup or sangria. But I’m adding a new one to my cocktail rotation. It’s made with the new Pure Leaf Real Brewed Tea, which is a new fave when it comes to iced tea. I often find iced teas can taste rather artificial or have a tinny taste to them, but this one tastes as though you’ve made the tea yourself, as it should as it is indeed tea that’s been brewed.

I discovered the cocktail at a Pure Leaf lunch, and the recipe was developed be Vancouver blogger Rebecca Coleman of Cooking by Laptop. I tweaked mine slightly (using less bourbon, as i didnt want anything too strong on a Sunday afternoon, plus I used a cherry-flavoured one. I also used angostura bitters as I did not have peach ones handy.

  • 1.5 oz bourbon
  • 2 raspberries
  • 2 blackberries
  • 4-6 dashes of peach bitters
  • Pure Leaf Lemon Iced Tea
  • ice

Muddle the berries at the bottom of a wide-mouth mason jar. Fill the jar with ice cubes. Pour the bourbon over the ice and add the bitters. Mix well and top with the iced tea. Stir well and garnish with a mint sprig.
