Mint Sweet Tea
A traditional sweet tea enhanced with our Black Fox Boreal Mint Gin. A perfect patio drink.
Seasonal Gins – Each new season gives us new ingredients to work with! Our seasonal gins are limited in quantity, and are available only at the distillery.
If this seasonal gin is unavailable you can still enjoy this recipe by muddling the mint leaves in a glass before poring the cocktail. Or try making the sweet tea using a peppermint tea!
1 oz Black Fox Boreal Mint Gin (seasonal)
Mint leaves for garnish
10 tea bags
1 – 1 1/2 cups sugar to taste
1/4 tsp baking soda
Add 4 cups of water to a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Remove from heat. Add tea bags and allow to steep for 10 minutes. Remove tea bags and add sugar, stirring until it dissolves. Add baking soda and stir again. Transfer tea mixture to a large pitcher and add 12 cups ice-cold water. Chill until ready to serve.
In a tall glass filled with ice add gin, and top with sweet tea adding a squeeze of lime at the end. Garnish with a mint sprig and lime wedge.
