RECIPE: Sweet Tea Cocktail

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.



  • 1 quart vodka
  • 1-1/2 cups simple syrup (recipe)
  • 1/4 cup English Breakfast or Irish Breakfast Tea,



    1. Combine all ingredients in a quart container (or larger container) with a tight seal.
    2. Shake well to thoroughly mix. Allow to “steep” for 45 minutes, shaking occasionally. Strain.
    3. Serve chilled.
