In a 1-quart jar, steep the bourbon with the tea bag for 2 hours; discard the tea bag. Fill a shaker with ice and add the lime juice, simple syrup, mint leaves and 2 ounces of the tea-infused bourbon; shake well. Strain into an ice-filled collins glass and garnish with the mint sprig; serve immediately.
Are the ratios here correct? Two cups bourbon seems like a lot for a single cocktail.
