Total time
Sorghum is a naturally gluten-free ancient cereal grain, and it has been used to produce popular sorghum syrup in the Southern United States for many years. It is often used like maple syrup, and can add a deeper, molasses-like influence to recipes like this citrus-kissed sorghum iced tea.

  • 6 cups water
  • 4 black tea bags
  • ¾ cup sorghum syrup
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup bourbon (optional)
  • Juice of 1 orange

  3. Stir in the bourbon, if using, and orange juice. Add sliced oranges to pitcher.
