The Rose Sisters' Special Ice Tea Recipe
Spring time is here! The flowers are blooming on Main Street in Keeneston. The horses are romping in the pastures, and the Derby hats are flying off the shelf at Southern Charms. Picnics, family get-togethers, friends grilling out, and the Kentucky Derby all have one thing in common: they are perfect for the Rose Sister's Special Ice Tea! So, break out your favorite bourbon (Woodford Reserve & Marker's Mark are two of Kentucky's favorites) and make the Rose Sister's Special Ice Tea for your party! Here is the recipe:
In a one gallon pitcher mix 2 cups of unsweetened ice tea.
Add 1 cup sugar and stir.
Mix in 1 12 oz. can frozen orange juice and 1 12 oz can frozen limeade. Stir until blended.
Pour in 1 750 ml bottle of your choice of Kentucky Bourbon and 7 cups of water.
Mix well and refrigerate until time to serve.
