McDonald’s Sweet Tea Recipe

What is better than an icy cold, refreshing drink on a scorching hot summers’ day? And Mcdonalds Sweet Tea is by far my favorite of them all.

Recipe Summary

  • 2 cups sugar
  • ½ gallon water
  • 1 tray ice cubes
  • 3 family sized teabags of orange pekoe tea
  • 3 cups cold water, or as needed

Pour the sugar into a large pitcher. Bring water to a boil in a large pan. When the water begins to boil, remove from the heat, and place the teabags in. Let steep for 5 to 6 minutes.

Remove tea bags, and return tea to the heat. Bring just to a boil, then pour into the pitcher, and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Fill the pitcher half way with ice, and stir until most of it melts. Then fill the pitcher the rest of the way with cold water, and stir until blended.

Sweet Tea Moonshine

Combine sugar, water, and lemon juice in a saucepan. Bring to a boil.

Reduce heat to a simmer and steep tea bags for prescribed amount of time on package.

Sweet Tea Moonshine

Combine Sweet Tea Simple Syrup, moonshine, and honey into a large bowl. Stir to combine.

Separate into 8-ounce mason jars. Seal and store in a dark place, preferably your pantry or out of direct sunlight.

Combine Sweet Tea Moonshine, lemon lime soda, sparkling water, and honey in a glass. Stir to combine.

Sweet Tea Moonshine Cocktail

Add crushed ice. Garnish with lemon slices if necessary.

If you want to go bold, feel free to use our Lemon Moonshine recipe in place of lemon lime soda, but be warned that this drink is potent.


Moonshine infusions will keep for up to a year and the longer you let it be, the better it tastes. Consider adding a dash of this moonshine to your cup of tea when you're under the weather.

Can I double this Sweet Tea Recipe?

Yes! We almost always double this recipe. It gets drank up faster than ever, especially when it&rsquos warm outside. There is nothing like a good old fashioned glass of iced tea on a hot day!

Can I flavor this sweet tea recipe?

This is a pretty standard tea recipe. I&rsquom sure there are readers in the South who will say that flavoring iced tea is basically murder BUT yes, you can. If you want to infuse some fruit flavor into your tea you can certainly add some fresh fruit!

Some flavors that I think would be delicious are lemon (easy and obvious) but also other citrus fruits, some raspberries, and even blueberries or strawberries would add a nice flavor.

What Ingredients Do I Need for this Recipe?

  • 3 C of water in a large pot
  • 2 Luzianne Family size Tea Bags
  • 1 C sugar
  • 7 C of water in a pitcher
  • Ice
  • Lemons, if you prefer, but it isn&rsquot real Southern sweet tea if you add lemons!

Easy Sweet Tea Recipe Directions:

  1. Bring the 3 C of water to a boil.
  2. Add the tea bags.
  3. Simmer for 20 minutes.
  4. Remove tea bags
  5. While tea is still hot add the 1 C of sugar, stirring well.
  6. Grab the pitcher with water pour in the hot tea and sugar mixture.
  7. Stir well.
  8. Add sliced lemons if you prefer.
  9. Add ice
  10. Keep chilled and serve cold.

How much does this recipe make?

This is more than a half gallon but less than a gallon if that makes sense. Depending on how much ice you add you&rsquoll need a gallon sized container to serve it up. If you prefer a more weak tea flavor you might add more water and then you would be at almost a gallon for each batch.

I don&rsquot like my tea too sweet, will I still like this?

You can definitely adjust the sugar to taste. I&rsquom not crazy about overly sweet tea either and since each batch is a little different I usually add about half and let it sit a bit and then see how I like the flavor.

Once you add the sugar you can&rsquot take it back so add it slowly if you prefer a less sweet recipe! You can always add more&hellipit&rsquos hard to take it back 🙂

Can I add some mint to this tea recipe?

You can try it! I&rsquove never done that. Usually when I&rsquom in the mood for mint tea I go out and grab some of the fresh mint that grows wild around the house and make a batch of mint tea! I would think the mint and the sweet tea flavors might clash but if you try it definitely let us know how it comes out.

Does this recipe taste like store bought tea?

No! This is a brewed tea tasting sweet tea recipe. I think the store bought stuff is kind of gross to be honest with you. If that&rsquos the flavor you are looking for you are probably going to be disappointed with this recipe. This easy sweet tea definitely has a brewed tea taste.

Julep Tea Spin using Jeremiah Weed Sweet Tea Vodka is a little like a tea version of a Mint Julep. Add more mint if you like. – recipe by Cobey Flynn, photo by Mixologist Cheri Loughlin, The Intoxicologist

1 ounce Jeremiah Weed Sweet Tea Vodka

Place a few mint leaves in bottom of glass. Muddle lightly. Add ice. Add Jeremiah Weed Sweet Tea and club soda. Squeeze in lime wedge. Stir lightly.

This Jeremiah Weed Sweet Tea recipe offers just a little more flavor to the traditional Southern sweet tea. It’s not quite a Mint Julep, but not quite sweet tea. Take this one out for a spin and see how you like it! Add more mint if you like, too.

Orange Swell uses Jeremiah Weed Sweet Tea Vodka. It is fabulously rich and warming with the addition of orange liqueur. – recipe by Aaron Yeats, photo by Mixologist Cheri Loughlin, The Intoxicologist

Orange Swell – recipe by Aaron Yeats

1 ounce Jeremiah Weed Sweet Tea Vodka

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 is made with Jeremiah Weed & Bourbon and Holiday Eggnog. It is simply fabulous. Rich and decadent. recipe by Katy Vaninger, photo by Mixologist Cheri Loughlin, The Intoxicologist

Holiday Tea Nog – recipe by Katy Vaninger

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.

Cobey’s Cran Tea is made with Jeremiah Weed Sweet Tea Vodka. It is also simple to make with easy to find ingredients. This drink is perfect for holiday parties, family gatherings or to kick back and relax with after all the celebrations have ended. – recipe suggestion by Cobey Flynn, recipe adapted by Mixologist Cheri Loughlin, The Intoxicologist

Bite of cranberry plays well with the sharpness of sweetened tea. I love the color and garnish for holiday serve. It is also simple to make with easy to find ingredients. This drink is perfect for holiday parties, family gatherings or to kick back and relax with after all the celebrations have ended.

Sweet Lemon with Jeremiah Weed Sweet Tea Vodka – photo by and recipe adapted by Cheri Loughlin from partial recipe version submitted by Shana Berry of Jeremiah Weed and Limoncello

1 ounce Jeremiah Weed Sweet Tea Vodka

1 ounce Limoncello Liqueur

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.

Southern Sweet Iced Tea

Like most southerners sweet iced tea has a special place in my heart. If you drop by my home I can pretty much guarantee you’ll find a cold pitcher of sweet iced tea on the top shelf of the fridge. No other beverage quenches the thirst AND comforts the soul like a cold glass of sweet tea. Nope. None.

For the sake of health I’ve been replacing half of the sugar with raw honey. It’s not as addicting, but I’m starting to get use to it.

This southern sweet iced tea recipe is sweet, refreshing, satisfying and makes you say “ahhhhhhh” when you’re done drinking it. It’s so easy to knock back several glasses full on a hot day without even realizing it.

Yes, you can make tea just like Mary Mac's. But unless you're sitting elbow-to-elbow at a cloth-covered table in the fabled dining room with a plate of fried chicken or fried green tomatoes in front of you, it probably won't taste the same, admits general manager Michael Fuhrman.
Although their preparation is pretty standard, there is one distinguishing feature, Fuhrman said. "Ours is the sweetest sweet tea that I've tasted," he said. "We actually tried to cut back a little, but people complained."

This Mary Mac's formula appears in "Mary Mac's Tea Room: Stories and Recipes from Atlanta's Classic Southern Kitchen" (Looking Glass Books, 2005) by Rebecca Lang, with recipes by original owner Margaret Lupo and current owner John Ferrell.

If the tea gets cloudy in the refrigerator, add a little boiling water and stir.

Southern Sweet Iced Tea

Few things are more refreshing at a mid-day meal than a tall glass of sweet tea. But too often, what arrives at lunch is an overly bitter glass of brown brew or a pale and watery pour. We like to make our own so we can control the strength and the sweetness. When brewed strong and sweetened, tea can get cloudy, but our friends in Birmingham tipped us off to a secret ingredient that not only cuts the bitterness but also makes clear tea. And it&rsquos already in your pantry (or maybe your fridge): baking soda. Just an eighth of a teaspoon is enough to clarify 8 cups of tea.

In the Southeast, when you ask for tea, people assume you mean iced and sweet, and that’s the way they serve it. The sweetener is always refined white sugar. Not honey. Not artificial. Sweet tea in Georgia seems to be sweeter than most other places. Georgians are so serious about their sweet tea that on April Fools’ Day 2003 several Georgia state legislators introduced a bill that said (a) As used in this Code section, the term ‘sweet tea’ means iced tea which is sweetened with sugar at the time that it is brewed. “Any food service establishment which serves iced tea must serve sweet tea. Such an establishment may serve unsweetened tea but in such case must also serve sweet tea. Any person who violates this Code section shall be guilty of a misdemeanor of a high and aggravated nature.”

The amount of sugar is personal, and Southern restaurants make sure the the sugar dispenser is full. Trey Murrell, Rogersville, TN, wrote to tell me “Most folks in the deep South like more than 1 cup of sugar. I put 2 cups myself. My grandmother, who grew up in South Carolina, puts 2 cups in hers. I heard one older man say that he likes his tea so sweet, if he runs out of pancake syrup, he’ll use his tea.”

Beware of sun tea

Sun tea is a method of making tea by pouring tea leaves into water in a clear class jar and sitting it in the sun to steep. People like it because the results are less tannic and bitter than boiled tea. It is also a lovely way to grow pathogens.

Tea leaves are grown in fields where birds and other animals can easily contaminate them with droppings. They are harvested by dirty hands. Many tea leaves are also dried in the open. They are not washed or pasteurized.

Steeping the leaves warm and wet in ambient air temp is a pathogen incubator. UV from the sun and tannin from the leaves may inhibit growth a bit, like a speed bump, but they cannot stop it. Boiling tea leaves kills all microbes. Boil your tea, please.

If you want to brew tea without boiling water, mix 2 to 3 tablespoons of tea leaves in 1/2 gallon of water and leave it in the fridge over night. Strain and serve.
