Record Temps Maybe?

74 degrees today in Washington, DC. Someone get me a drink with an umbrella in it and some good music.

High Tea.

It’s time to celebrate the start of summer this weekend with smokey BBQ’s, garden parties, sunset weddings and lots of pool time. I’ve got a busy weekend that includes a wee bit of celebrating outdoors (c’mon Mother Nature….bring us some sun!). I found this Sweet Tea with Vodka and Lemonade recipe in Bon Appetit. It looks delish and might be the perfect southern cocktail to offer alongside that Prosecco and Corona Light (with lime of course)! Who’s ready for another round?


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


  1. Place tea bags in medium bowl. Add 1/2 cup boiling water. Let steep 4 minutes. Discard tea bags.
  2. Place mint sprigs in large pitcher; mash with muddler or handle of wooden spoon until slightly bruised. Pour in tea, lemonade, and vodka. Can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and chill.
  3. Fill 8 highball glasses with ice. Divide sweet tea among glasses. Garnish with lemon slices.

Just a Thought.
