Mint Julep Sweet Tea
It's two southern favorites packed into one tasty cocktail! This Mint Julep Sweet Tea is the perfect beverage to sip on the porch.

Muddling the mint is a must if you want your drink to taste minty. We love that this recipe is served in a pitcher but if you want to make one drink use these measurements: 2 Tablespoons mint, 2 lemon slices, 1 tsp sugar, 3/4 cup sweet tea, 1/4 cup bourbon.
