This variationI found years ago in Bon Appetite. If you servr in a tall glass with lots of ice, the wallop it packs will take a little longer ! It is such a smooth, hot weather drink, that you may not realize how muc you have had. I usually make by the pitcher. I was checking before I added the recipe. Thanks for posting.
