Sweet Tea with Vodka and Lemonade

A perfect summertime cocktail. Because it’s a combination of iced tea, lemonade, and booze, I’ve dubbed it the Tipsy Arnold Palmer.

Sweet Tea with Vodka and Lemonade

Yield: 8 drinks

2 large tea bags for iced tea
1/2 cup boiling water
8 fresh mint springs
4 cups lemonade made from frozen concentrate
1/2 cup vodka
Ice cubes
8 lemon slices

Place tea bags in medium bowl. Add 1/2 cup boiling water. Let steep 4 minutes. Discard tea bags. Place mint sprigs in large pitcher; mash with muddler or handle of wooden spoon until slightly bruised. Pour in tea, lemonade, and vodka.

Fill 8 highball glasses with ice. Divide sweet tea among glasses. Garnish with lemon slices.

  1. We’ve been drinking this for years…oh, and if you order it at a restaurant or bar, they call it a “John Daley”.

    Pretty funny.
