Fun & Fancy Drinks

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!

Iced Tea

Always a crowd pleaser & so refreshing

Regular tea bags
Baking soda
Boiling water
Sugar
Cold water

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.

Sangria
