Welcome to week 5 of the summer cocktail series. These last few weeks have been packed full of delicious drinks perfect for any summer occasion. Be sure to look back at the last 4 weeks for all kinds of cocktail inspiration.
Today I am sharing a honey whiskey iced tea, this drink is perfect for sipping on the porch after a long day. Whether your days are full of fun and sun or work and AC, this citrus and sweet drink will help you unwind and enjoy those long summer nights.
Honey whiskey is a staple on our bar cart. A good blend tastes amazing over ice or mixed with soda lemonade or tea. Since honey whiskey is already sweet, this cocktail uses unsweetened tea and lemonade for the perfect blend of honey and citrus.
Types of honey whiskey
There are a few different ways distilleries make honey whiskey. The first is by combining a traditional whiskey with a honey liquor. This is the method used by Jack Daniels.
Another method is blending real honey with whiskey or bourbon like the Wild Turkey blend used in this recipe. Both taste great but have subtle differences. Taste test and find the variety that suits you best.
- 2 oz honey whiskey
- 3 oz lemonade
- 3 oz unsweetened iced tea
- Lemon slice, for garnish
- Pour the whiskey into a glass full of ice. Mix in equal parts lemonade and iced tea. Add a lemon slice for garnish.
This drink can be made in any size, just mix equal parts lemonade and iced tea and add honey whiskey to your taste. Drinks with honey whiskey are best served iced cold.

Start with a glass full of ice and add 1-2 shots of honey whiskey. This is a sipping drink so make it strong and enjoy every slow sip. Top with equal parts unsweetened iced tea and lemonade then garnish with a slice of lemon.
The combination of whiskey and iced tea with a hint of lemon is soothing and refreshing.
You can make your own iced tea using your favorite tea bags, you can also mix fresh lemon juice with sugar and water for a delicious lemonade.
But if you are like me you are probably reaching for this honey whiskey drink after a long day, so feel free to cut a few corners and use premade mixers. In fact, I’m a fan of this organic half tea half lemonade drink. Just add this to your honey whiskey and your drink is complete.
