Bourbon Cocktails

BOURBON SWEET TEA

Nothing could be more Delta than sweet tea and bourbon. And nothing could be easier than making a whole pitcher at once to serve and enjoy.

5 cups sweet tea
15 ounces bourbon
Ice
10 lemon wedges
10 fresh mint sprigs (optional)

Mix bourbon and sweet tea in a pitcher and stir to combine.

For each drink, fill a tall glass with ice and fill with the cocktail. Garnish with a wedge of lemon and sprig of fresh mint if using.

Editor’s note: Your favorite sweet tea can be made in advance—or you can cheat like we did and buy a gallon of Milo’s to make it super easy!

BOURBON MULE

Traditionally served in a copper mug and made with vodka, our twist on the classic Moscow Mule blends the richness of bourbon with the spiciness of ginger beer. We kept the copper mug, though, which keeps drinks especially frosty!

1/2 ounces bourbon
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1/2 cup light ginger beer
1 fresh mint sprig

In a copper mug, combine bourbon and lime juice. Fill cup with ice. Add ginger beer; stir gently to combine. Garnish with mint sprig and lime slice.
