It is getting hot here- like Summer has finally arrived- with that hot weather comes the urge to hang out on our deck- enjoying the ocean air and sip on some tasty, Summery libations. One of my favourites for warm weather sipping is Whiskey Iced Tea- spiked with a bit of lemon balm or mint.
At the start of the day I like to brew up a jug of Sun Tea- harvest solar energy and use it to your advantage. Sun Tea is simple- get a jug or a jar and fill it with water- throw in a tea bag or two and mint or lemon balm- place it in a sunny spot and leave it to brew. When you come back a few hours later you have an infusion that just tastes like sunshine- pour over ice and enjoy.
Whiskey Iced Tea
1 once whiskey
1 teaspoon sugar (optional)
garnish with mint or lemon
Kick back in a lawn chair on the porch and enjoy- just sit and watch the ice melt- sip- watch the world go by! I think the art of doing nothing has fallen by the wayside- I am most guilty of this as I always have a project on the go- my goal this summer is to redefine relaxing- patio chilling- with this fine bevy in hand!
* this is most definitely enjoyed even more when with a friend or five!
