And now for something refreshing

I’m serving drinks on the patio this afternoon. C’mon and join me.

There’s nothing I like better on a fine summer day than catching some rays while hanging by the pool and cooling off with a nice summer cocktail. Unfortunately, I don’t have a pool, nor is it a fine day, but I won’t let those little details get in the way. But I do have the mixings for my favorite new summertime drink, so one out of three ain’t bad, right?

I’m using one of the new sweet teas. You can find them in the vodka section of your favorite liquor store. I’ve never tried this one before but the words jeremiah and weed in the name sort of intrigued me.

There are suddenly many different brands of sweet tea available. Firefly is an excellent choice. And I rather like Carolina Tea which is a little less costly. When mixing your cocktail, it’s always better if the lemonade is as fresh as you can get it. Of course, in a pinch, the powder mix will do.

This is the simple recipe:

Sweet Tea Vodka with Lemonade

Fill glass with ice.

Fill to half with sweet tea vodka.

Top with lemonade.

You should probably write that down, in case you forget.

 

Today, I’m serving mine in my UVa cocktail tumbler, in honor of Lauren. Just so you know, they’re available at the university bookstore, one of the nicest college book stores I’ve ever seen. (There’s even a Clinique counter).

Enjoy!

Until tomorrow, my friends . . .

This certainly looks refreshing.. just had some lemonade this evening but without the added extras. It was yummy anyway! Today was the first time this year that I was craving lemonade.

Somehow I think that Sweet Tea vodka is going to be hard to find up north...but I'm going to try!

It's been cold here and I have a cold so I had my cold remedy tonight...Hot tea with honey, lemon, and some Johnny Walker...I'm not sure what part cures the cold but it works!

I suspect this would go down very smoothly on a hot, humid afternoon. Thanks!

All of these drinks sound good, and I can't have any of them. I'll just stick with regular lemonade. Or maybe add strawberries. :)

Oooo yummy. Looks refreshing.

I'm not much for vodka, but that brand of lemonade is really delicious. They make great orange juice, as well.

Donalyn said...

I would have to put down my glass of wine to give it a try, but - ok!

Daryl said...

I think we hit 105 degrees here today and that would be so good right about now. I will definitely try this tomorrow. I don't want to leave the AC now that I'm home to get the ingredients.

Mary said...

Well hell, that looks good! ;)
