Lord Honey, whatta y'all get when you mix the official drink of the South with the official drink of Kentucky? Well a cocktail with the perfect combination of sweet tea and bourbon--of course! Just sit back and enjoy my "Kentucky Sweet Tea" all summer long. On second thought--we enjoy our sweet tea and bourbon all year long--so don't limit yourself.
