Tea Infused Vodka Shines in this Summertime Cocktail
This alcoholic version of the Arnold Palmer is a refreshing and light summer cocktail. Easy to make and sure to please!
Three ingredients, a scoop of ice, a cute glass and you’ve got everything you need to stir up this tasty summertime cocktail. I was first introduced to tea infused vodka a few weeks ago. We traveled to Rhode Island for a softball tournament and at the end of a long day, the parents enjoyed some coverstaion and cocktails.
One of the moms was drinking a half and half: lemonade and half tea infused vodka. I had one sip (thank you Kelly) and knew this would be my next recipe. There’s no fuss with blenders or muddlers; just pour some lemonade over ice and add a little tea infused vodka (there are a few brands to choose from) and you have a delicious no-fuss alcoholic version of an Arnold Palmer (often referred to at the local watering hole as a John Daly). I used the Sweet Tea Vodka and found that once you mixed it with lemonade there wasn’t a strong alcohol taste. It’s more refreshing than potent.
A fun way to serve these drinks is in a Ball jar (those are the canning glasses). You can buy a dozen for about $10.00. I’ve noticed these jars popping up more and more at restaurants, especially when serving tea or lemonade and I find them adorably Southern. So, your next girls night,
book club, date night or end of year barbecue, throw this easy summer sipper on the menu. The adults will love it!
