Skinnygirl Cocktails is making a toast to the dog days of summer by adding a new twist to the beloved warm weather classic ~ Iced Tea! Although some may dispute that there is only one particular way to drink tea...sweet and with ice, we found that tea can actually be enhanced and varied with a few key ingredients.
The Skinny Tea Twister gives an exhilarating taste to the traditional Iced Tea as this mix of two summer time favorites come together to create a fresh cocktail with a little zest! The Green Tea Cooler captures the flavor of summer and provides an invigorating and beneficial element to the mix. While Green Tea may be your tea of choice on a regular basis, this tea has a few surprising health benefits that you won't want to miss out on. In addition to providing valuable antioxidants, Green Tea is also good for weight loss, depression, high cholestoral, high blood pressure and diabetes, just to name a few. As they say, a cup a day, keeps the doctor away!
Iced Tea was definitely made for leisurely back-porch sippin' and to quench your thirst on a hot, humid summer afternoon. Whether you're sippin' pool side or under the big beach umbrella, there's always a reason to treat yourself and your company to some refreshing tea cocktails, after all, tea is a summer time staple!
Try out the recipes below as you sip your way through summer ~ both cocktails are reminders as to why this season is To-TEA-lly the best.
