Thirsty Thursday: Bourbon Tea Punch with Citrus Ice Cubes

Bourbon Tea Punch

It’s more than just alliteration; it’s a statement, a proclamation that Thursdays are when the weekend should really start. Kicking it off right is the key, and what better way than with a cocktail that not only takes the edge off, but tastes good too. A hard thing to disagree with, we know. Drink up, get down and go to sleep happy.

Toast to tea when you’re winding down this evening with a glass that takes the English breakfast variety and pairs it with fresh fruit, brandy and bourbon. Full to the brim with bright citrus, like orange, lemon and lime, it’s exactly the sort of drink you’ll want when in need of a little late in the day pick-me-up. Plus, the individually frozen citrus slices mean the ice cubes double as colorful garnishes.

That’s right, tea time just got serious.

Bottoms up, folks.
