Very refreshing drink on a hot day. I used just a part of the sugar, and added a little rum to my serving - yup, refreshing!
This was absolutely delightful. I made this exactly as posted, except I did not add sugar. I prefer unsweetened iced tea and the juices made it plenty sweet enough for me. Late on a hot summer's eve, I decided to add some sweet tea vodka to my iced tea. Even yummier! Thanks for sharing this summertime treat!
I needed this. It's a rotisserie out there. Made for PRMR.
