Drink of the Week: Bourbon Sweet Tea Cocktail (GAPS)

Bourbon Sweet Tea Cocktail (GAPS-friendly) | OUR NOURISHING ROOTS

This cocktail is a lot of fun to make, because you can use your favorite green, black, or white tea and the flavors are excellent and clean.  But you can also make funky teas like rooibos, herbals, and even chai for an interesting and ever-changing twist on a simple cocktail.

Plus, since you use bourbon as the base liquor, those on the GAPS diet can indulge in this cocktail once in a while without much trouble.  Bourbon or whiskey is allowed on the GAPS diet, although whiskey is only recommended on occasion.
