Summer Tea Jam

  • 2 ounces Seagram’s Sweet Tea Vodka
  • 1 ounce lemon juice
  • ½ ounce simple syrup

Blackberry-Bourbon Iced Tea

  • 3 cups fresh blackberries
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint, plus mint sprigs for garnish
  • 6 good-quality black tea bags
  • Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon, to taste (Bobby likes Woodford Reserve)
  1. Combine the blackberries, sugar and chopped mint in a large bowl and mash with a potato masher or wooden spoon; let sit while making the tea.
  2. While the blackberries are macerating, bring 1 1/2 quarts cold water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Remove from the heat, add the tea bags and let steep for about 3 minutes. Remove the tea bags and pour the tea over the blackberry mixture. Let the mixture sit at room temperature for at least 1 hour to let the flavors meld.
  3. Pour the mixture through a strainer into a pitcher, pressing on the solids. Cover and refrigerate until cold, at least 2 hours. (You can also pour the mixture into a bowl set over an ice bath to cool it faster.)
  4. Serve the blackberry tea over ice in tall glasses and float a shot of Woodford Reserve bourbon on top of each. Garnish with fresh mint sprigs (like a mint julep).
