Summer Tea Cocktail

Summer Tea Cocktail

This summer tea drink  is very easy to make and the result is amazing. It can be served without gin if you just want a cooling drink or serve it with gin to turn it into an exciting summertime tea cocktail. Cold Peppermint tea with gin turns out to be very refreshing and is perfect for hot summer evenings.

Lemon is always refreshing and mint can always boast of its soothing effects. That is a powerful combination. A must try!

Any cool, refreshing summer drink plus gin is a win for me! I've got a cucumber gin mojito going up on my blog later today. Thanks for the recipe!

Your photos of drinks are beautiful! I had my first photo shoot of cold drinks other day and it was so difficult! This one looks really refreshing and you captured it so well. Now I'm thirsty and ready for this drink!
Re:

Thank you. You are right.. drink photos are quite difficult. I said the same thing to my husband that I work more for drink photos than for the others.
