Featured Pinch Tips Video
- 3 oz. bourbon
- 1 ½ oz. brown sugar syrup (recipe below)
- 10 oz. boiling water
- 2 peppermint tea bags
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- ¼ cup water
BROWN SUGAR SYRUP:
1Prepare syrup by bringing both ingredients to a boil in a heavy sauce pan over high heat. Stir to dissolve and when mixture just begins to boil, reduce to simmer and allow to cook for five – six minutes. Remove from heat and cool.
2Constructing the rest of the drink is easy. For the two drinks, bring 10 ounces of water to a boil. Pour directly into heat proof glasses or mugs and place a peppermint tea bag in each; allow to steep for about four minutes.
3Remove teabag; add 1½ oz. bourbon to each glass/mug and stir. Garnish with a sprig of mint and a lemon twist.
