Here’s a summer refreshment for tea lovers over the age of 21: sweet tea vodka.
Created by Chris Cason, co-founder of Tavalon Tea, it combines two summer favorites: sweet iced tea and a vodka cocktail.
The tea-infused vodka is delicious straight up or on the rocks, but it’s also a good mixer.
For example, a 1:1 ratio of sweet tea vodka to fresh-squeezed lemonade makes a Spiked Arnold Palmer (fresh lemonade recipe).
You can serve it as an “iced tea cocktail.” Or for fun, serve it in a teacup with a wedge of lemon.
