Sweet Tea Vodka: The Perfect Summer Drink

Brandy O'Neill | Nutmeg Nanny

Summer and sweet tea go hand in hand. Don’t worry if you are not a fan of bourbon. It can easily be left out or replaced with vodka. The choice is yours!

There is nothing more refreshing than sitting on the porch and sipping sweet tea.

It’s the iconic southern summer. I took this image and gave it a refreshing twist by combining fresh brewed iced tea, sweet muddled mint, lemon juice and a splash of vodka. You won’t want to put this one down!

This cocktail is refreshing, full of flavor and a breeze to make. If you’re not a fan of vodka, simply leave it out. It’s still full of flavor and perfect for summer. Trust me!

    I do trust all of the ideas you have offered for your post. They're really convincing and can certainly work. Still, the posts are very short for starters. May you please prolong them a bit from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.
