Patriot Tea

dotw logoHappy Independence Day! To celebrate, we have an All American Bourbon cocktail that is perfect for your July 4th Barbecue. Patriot tea starts with a fresh brewed pitcher of iced tea, lemon and mint. American Honey, a 71-proof bourbon & honey-based liquor from Wild Turkey is then added to the tea giving it the sweetness of honey and, of course, Kentucky Bourbon.

Grab a tall glass, hit the lawn chair and get ready for some fireworks!
