Some might argue that flavored spirits such as Jeremiah Weed Sweet Tea Vodka need no more than water, ice and a tall glass to make it enjoyable. If that is how you enjoy your pre-mixed sweet tea drink, then that is exactly how it should be poured. However, some of us just can’t help ourselves when it comes to dabbling beyond what is already available.

Premixed cocktails, liqueurs, spirits and juices are the equivalent of a lab kit to a mad scientist. We love to pour, mix, stir, shake, taste and see if there is some new flavor we can whip up in a glass.

A few years ago I asked Intoxicologist Facebook readers to create a few Jeremiah Weed Sweet Tea recipes using a variety of Jeremiah Weed flavors. Flavors included Sweet Tea, Sweet Tea & Lemonade and Sweet Tea Vodka & Bourbon Whiskey. The recipe requirements were minimal. Recipes should be simple with fall and holiday themes in mind. The thought is premixed cocktails are purchased for ease of drinking. Turning a premixed bottled cocktail into a custom cocktail should be just as quick and easy when friends and family gather for a festive occasion. Readers came through with some great festive drinks.

Orange Swell – recipe by Aaron Yeats

1 ounce Jeremiah Weed Sweet Tea Vodka

1 ounce Orange Juice

Splash Paula’s Texas Orange Liqueur

Build in a rocks glass over fresh ice.

The sweet tea loses a fair amount of sharpness with this fabulously rich and warming drink. The orange notes are quite sweet depending upon how much orange liqueur you use. If Paula’s Texas Orange Liqueur is not available, use an orange liqueur available locally.

Holiday Tea Nog – recipe by Katy Vaninger

4 ounces Holiday Eggnog

2 ounces Jeremiah Weed & Bourbon

Place ice in large goblet. Add premade Holiday Eggnog. Float Jeremiah Weed & Bourbon on top.

I am enthusiastically and wonderfully surprised by this particular drink. I am not a huge eggnog fan, but this is terrific! The Holiday Tea Nog is thick and rich. The flavor comes across with a little bit of black tea sharpness with somewhat of a darker fullness to it. If six ounces is too much for you, cut the recipe in half.

Sweet Lemon – recipe adapted by Cheri Loughlin from partial recipe version submitted by Shana Berry using Jeremiah Weed and Limoncello

1 ounce Jeremiah Weed Sweet Tea Vodka

1 ounce Limoncello Liqueur

2 ounces Club Soda

Lemon Wedge Squeezed

Lemon Slice Garnish

Place ice in rocks glass. Add Jeremiah Weed Sweet Tea and Limoncello liqueur. Squeeze in juice of one lemon wedge and discard wedge. Top with club soda. Stir gently. Garnish with lemon slice.

Fresh lemon is just what the dentist ordered to give this drink just enough hint of tart and not too much over the top sweetness. Jeremiah Weed black tea flavor comes through with just enough flair in the finish.
