Summertime calls for outdoor activities and plenty of cold cocktails — and iced tea cocktails are no exception. Plus, there are some recipes that are so good, you’ll want to make batches upon batches of them and invite a few friends over to help you get through ’em. Because, hey, cocktails should be sipped among friends, right?
The best part? All the following recipes are incredibly easy to make and are sure to be your new summertime faves.
1. Bourbon iced tea
What we love about this particular take on bourbon iced tea is the addition of honey mint.
2. Spiked raspberry iced tea
This recipe uses fresh raspberry and is the perfect mix of sweet and tangy — perfect for when the temperatures start to heat up.
3. Sweet tea sangria
Because this is a sangria, you’ll be using wine instead of liquor to make this cocktail boozy — perfect for a garden party or after-dinner treat.
4. Lemon-mint iced tea
We love the combination of lemon and mint. It’s a pairing that can really only be improved by rum, don’t you think?
