- 6 cups water
- 1 cup sugar
- 6 black tea bags
- 2 oranges, sliced
- 2 lemons, sliced
- 2 limes, sliced
- 2 cups bourbon
- Combine water and sugar in a saucepan and bring it to boil, whisking to dissolve sugar. Slightly cool sugar water, add tea bags and let steep for 5 to 10 minutes, depending on how strong you want your tea. (If you like your tea very strong, leave tea bags in tea for longer.) Remove tea bags.
- Pour sweet tea into a pitcher or a jar; add orange, lemon and lime slices. Pour in bourbon. Cover and chill in a refrigerator.
- Serve in a glass with ice if you prefer and enjoy!
