Tear mint leaves by hand and place one into a ice tray. Pour lemonade over the mint leaves and freeze to make ice cubes.
Bring the water to a boil. Turn off water and steep the black tea bags, about 5 minutes. Mix in mint leaves, 1 orange, squeezed, 2 sliced lemons, squeezed, and honey to taste. Mix well.
Pour to taste Bourbon Whiskey over the ice cubes. Mix in the sweet tea and stir. Serve with fresh orange and lemon slices and mint. Cheers!
