Memphis Iced Tea

Memphis Iced Tea created by Parsley

From Neely's BBQ here in Memphis. Delicious! This recipe comes from their show Down Home with the Neely's! I suggest Gentleman Jack for the whiskey if you want an authentic Memphis, TN tea! :) NOTE: Please make sure you use real sweet tea, not tea with equal or sweet-n-low added to it! You must add sugar to the tea during the brewing process for authentic southern sweet tea!

    I made this for a party and used a large pitcher. Everyone who tried it liked it. To keep it cold, I froze some of the iced tea into ice cubes so it wouldn't get watered down by ice. I used ginger ale instead of club soda, just because I'm not a fan of club soda. It looked very nice with lemon slices floating on top. I'll be making this again. Thanx!

    You can really taste the whiskey in this drink. I made homemade sun tea and don't think I let it brew enough, either that or the club soda and ice made it on the light side. Overall a great drink that goes down real smooth. Thanks for posting. :)

    I used real "sweet" tea, and Jack Daniels. I'm not really a whiskey drinker, but love sweet tea, so thought I'd try it. This was a 4.3 to me, but since I don't really love whiskey, I decided to up the rating. I think someone that likes whiskey will love it.
