This spiked sweet tea couldn’t be easier: Mix two parts Citrus Sweet Tea with one part vodka, stir, and serve over ice. You can combine everything but the ice ahead of time in a large lidded container with a spigot on the bottom, so you won’t have to step away from grillmaster duties to shake up individual drinks for your guests. Grace recommends adding garnishes like lemon slices, cucumber slices, mint, or basil and letting them sit for a while to add even more fresh flavor to the antioxidant-rich mixer, which is made from organic English Breakfast tea, lemon peel, and lime juice. “The longer it sits, the more flavorful it gets,” Maria notes.
To keep your cocktails cool, fill an ice bucket with custom cubes made from more Citrus Sweet Tea mixer. Maria suggests adding a little water so it’ll freeze well, and, if you really want to show off, small berries like blueberries and raspberries. As the ice melts, it’ll infuse the spiked tea instead of diluting it.
Dinner? Check. Drinks? Done. Now all that’s left to do is kick back and tease your buddy about that double-bogey on the sixth hole.
