As the weather warms up, we can finally head outside & enjoy the sunshine! What better way to do that than with a drink in hand. Here are a few of our favorites to share when entertaining!
Always a crowd pleaser & so refreshing
Regular tea bags
Add boiling water & baking soda to a heat-proof pitcher. The baking soda neutralizes the tannins in the tea, giving it a smoother taste. Add hot water & let it steep for 15 minutes. Remove the tea bags & add the sugar. Stir until the sugar has dissolved and then add your cold water. Serve over ice.
Sweet & fruity, perfect for drinking outdoors.
Fruit (any, apples, oranges, berries)
Brown sugar, honey or agave
Brandy or rum
Red wine (some people use white wine as an alternative)
Add your fruit & orange juice to a pitcher. Refrigerate for 3-4 hours. Serve as is for a virgin drink or add your liquor & wine before serving. Taste, and then add your sweetener as needed. Serve over ice.
