Citrus Arnold Palmer with Bourbon

3 cups

When brewing black teas to serve cold, steep them longer than usual, as their intensity will be mellowed by ice and the addition of other flavors.


  • 2 cups boiling water

  • 4 teaspoons loose English breakfast tea (or 4 tea bags)

  • ½ cup bourbon

  • Juice of 1 orange

  • Juice of 1 lemon

  • 2 tablespoons Simple Syrup for Iced Tea

  • Ice, for serving

  • Orange slices, for garnish


  1. Pour water over tea, and steep 5 to 7 minutes. Strain, and refrigerate. Stir in bourbon, juices, and syrup. Serve over ice with garnish.
