Those of you that know me know that I don't like cocktails, I find them too sweet. It was not exceptionally hot last evening, but I spent the day with a chain saw so I was hot. My wife spent the day gardening so she also worked up a good sweat. We took some chocolate mint from her herb garden and put it in a food processor, then put the crushed mint into a tea ball. I poured a good sized glass of Very Old Barton and used that as a base for the tea. After it seeped well we poured it over two ice cubes and garnished it with a sprig of chocolate mint. Very cool and refreshing. It works just as well with any other good bourbon. We tried it once with spearmint and it wasn't nearly as good as chocolate mint, but it was still cool and refreshing. She also raises sun mint but we haven't tried it with that. Those of you who have an herb garden, give it a try and let me know your opinion. I call it Arkansas Tea, maybe I should call it Kentucky Tea?
