It's Monday, and you deserve a cocktail just for getting out of bed this morning. Let's face it, sometimes Mondays are just the worst. Your weekend high turns into a weekend somber on Sunday night and then it's back to the grind the next morning. Or at least that is how it all plays out in our house. That's why you deserve to come home from work today and whip up this tasty tea spiked with a little somethin' somethin' to wind down. These ginger, lemon, and honey infused iced tea cocktails are mine and Canean's new favorite go to summer cocktail, perfect for front porch sittin' when it's nice and steamy outside.
Is there anything more southern than sweet tea really? There might be a couple of close contenders, but really sweet tea is just in so many of my memories of summer growing up. That's why I decided I wanted to make an iced tea cocktail with a few flavor enhancers that would be perfect for quenching your thirst all summer long!
Let's face it, in Louisiana we need all the help we can get staying cool. And if a cocktail can help achieve my optimum body temperature, then who am I to mess with that? It's basically a necessity...yes, definitely a necessity.
