It's summer officially and we need a new template for refreshments! So Kess InHouse presents: The 5 O'Clock Hour blog series! We'll feature a new recipe each week. Something special and delicious!

Our first feature is The Summer Belle. A specialty at the beautiful J. Parker. Kolin Juckins, the beverage director for J. Parker, discusses their summer choices. “Our summer cocktail menu is inspired by warm weather countries around the world and as you can tell, the Southern Bell draws inspiration from the South. Serving iced tea to guests on a hot summer day continues to be an integral part of Southern culture and the Breckenridge bourbon adds a nice kick to an already refreshing drink. The first iced tea recipe called for a lemon garnish, so we’ve continued that tradition on with this drink as well.”

2 oz. Breckenridge Bourbon

.25 oz. Peach Liqueur

.75 oz. Black Tea syrup*

.5 oz. fresh Lemon Juice

Lemon wedge for Garnish

Combine all ingredients and pour over ice and Enjoy!

Recipe for the Black Tea syrup: Combine 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar on low heat until dissolved. Add 4 tea bags and steep for 5 minutes. Remove tea bags. Chill and refrigerate. Syrup will keep for up to 2 weeks.
