The kids are out of school and the days are getting warmer which means the official beginning of summer is right about the corner. And when it comes to hot and humid days, nothing beats the heat like a refreshing glass of ice cold drink.
If you’re feeling a little parched right about now and need a refreshing beverage to whet your whistle, go grab your biggest glass. June 10 is National Iced Tea Day in the U.S.A! After all, nothing quite beats the heat like an ice-cold beverage on a hot summer day, eh.
Tea not only tastes good, it’s good for you, too. Some believe that certain types of tea can help reduce your risk of stroke and heart disease, protect against cancer, lower cholesterol, delay aging and stimulate the immune system. And nothing beats a piping hot glass of calorie-free tea, honey and a splash of something a bit stronger to fight that nagging sore throat.
Whether you prefer your iced tea alcohol-free or with a little extra “spirit,” celebrate National Iced Tea with one or two of the refreshing mocktails or cocktail recipes listed below! Gather up the kiddies, best friends or "sweet-tea," - it's tea party time!
