Cook Time
45 min
about 8 glasses, enough for 4 people or 1 person having a hard day
7 cups water
5 black tea bags, like English Breakfast Tea or whatever you got
3 mint tea bags
2 inch piece of ginger, skinned and roughly sliced
½ cup lemon juice
½ cup maple syrup
1 ½ cups bourbon or dark rum, optional
to serve: ginger ale, mint, lemon slices

Bring 7 cups of water to a boil. Add the tea bags and ginger then throw the lid on and let that shit steep for 15 minutes. Now the water should well, look like a giant cup of fucking tea. Fish out the bags and the ginger chunks then stir in the lemon juice, maple syrup, and bourbon if you’re into it. Now stick this in the fridge to cool down.

Once the tea is cool and ready to serve, throw it in a pitcher with some ice. Fill everyone’s glass about ¾ full then top that shit off with some ginger ale and some mint or lemon slices. No ginger ale? Leave it out and this fucker is still delicious.
