RECIPE: Col. Taylor’s Medicinal Sweet Tea

Combine everything but the sweet tea in a shaker and muddle with ice. Dump into a highball and top with sweet tea (below).   We only used about 2 oz, but feel free to upgrade to a bigger glass and add more “tea”.

This sweet tea is between a sweet tea and a syrup.  To make the tea, we brewed 2 bags of black tea in a 12oz mug of hot water.  After the bags have steeped for a few minutes, but before the water cools, add 1/4 cup of sugar and stir until fully dissolved. Allow to cool before making your boozy treat.

Ep. 24 – The Spirits and Booze Podcast

Show Notes

In this Chaotic Neutral episode, we go looking for alcohol spirits, and spend quite a bit of time in distilleries as a result. First, Nick goes on a brief tour of Scotch distilleries. Then Cait heads back stateside for a look at the ghosts haunting Buffalo Trace Distillery. Finally, “Mel!” returns to give us look at Japanese Shojo spirits WITHOUT looking at them through the lens of The CW’s Supernatural.

RECIPE: The Stone Fence

  • 2 oz white rum
  • 12 oz hard cider
  • Dash of cardamom bitters
  • Squeeze of lemon juice

Combine all ingredients in a 16-20 oz glass with ice.  Garnish with fresh mint. Drink like the Founding Fathers.

You can substitute brandy or whiskey for this drink.  Cait likes it with rye, but the rum is super refreshing.  You can also use angostura bitters.
