Now, I know that a lot of people are going to find it interesting that you can add different taste and twist for your ice tea, but it is not that new of a notion. Here, you are getting a great recipe that is going to teach you how to add in and make your own Bourbon and Brandy Ice Tea.
Why Make Sweet Bourbon And Brandy Ice Tea
Outside of the obvious fact that hate team is awesome, it is important to know more about why you would even want to make Sweet Bourbon and Brandy ice tea.
Well, one of the primary reasons to make the ice team like this is it provides a different taste profile or the tea. Yes, you may be used to the Lipton tea or other tea you pick up at the store. However, if you are like me you can get tired of drinking the same type of tea all the time. Just simply following the recipe above it is easy to get the transition to a new flavor profile for the tea and know it will make it easier for you to drink quite a bit of tea again.
Something else to consider is tea is naturally high in anti-oxidants. When you add in the Brandy and Bourbon to the tea, you are going to want to get more of the anti-oxidants. Now, one thing that you do have to make sure if you drink this in moderation as it will have alcohol in the team now compared to what you are used to having.
Finally, this is from my own personal experience, but the tea with the brandy and bourbon in it tends to burn when it goes down. Now, this is a drink that I really like when I have a sore throat or my sinuses have been draining all night. The burning sensation helps soothe my throat and while I know it is not the purpose of the video or even the tea, but I feel like it is getting rid of germs in my own mind.
