Looking for a boozy iced tea to sip on this summer? Check out my Jack Daniels Ice Tea Recipe below. It gives you that adult beverage you desire but with a twist, as it is mixed with tea and some lemon for that citrus tang at the end. Whiskey and Tea is refreshing and light for summer.
This spiked iced tea recipe is great for whipping up for summer BBQs and pool parties. While it is very affordable but tasty to sip on. Best of all, just a couple ingredients and a spoon to stir is all this jack tea requires. Grab your favorite tea bags and get brewing.
What I love about this jack tea is that you can make it up in a pitcher or create single-serve mason jar cups, and then twist on a lid and toss in a cooler of ice. Then when the guests arrive they can grab a mason jar of jack tea and twist the lid off and get an instant drink right at their fingertips.
Whiskey and Tea
I find that to be a very helpful hack for summer parties, I make a bunch of drinks ahead of time and put in mason jars with lids. Add a label that says what it is, and to give a shake, and then drink, is all your guest have to do. Prep ahead so they are ready to serve drinks.

Refreshing Jack Daniels Iced Tea Recipe
Simply slice up your lemon into really thin slices and set aside. Then add in half the lemons into your glasses, I aim to do 1/2 a lemon per cocktail, but tweak to your liking. Then toss in a shot of Jack Daniels, and top it off with your favorite lemon flavored iced tea or just regular unsweetened iced tea. Toss in some ice and shake or stir and sip and enjoy.
Now if you are having a really hard day, feel free to toss in another shot of Jack, but be warned these drinks pack some punch, and they go down nice and smooth! Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
