Iced Teaquila

Spike your next batch of iced tea with tequila to create the forever-fun iced teaquila.

This cocktail is what we are currently shaking (or stirring) up after working in the yard or as the perfect patio sipper. It’s refreshing it’s herbal, thanks to the tea, and a touch earthy from the bell pepper juice. Make one, make a pitcher! We used Blue Nectar Tequila, their Silver variety, for this cocktail. It’s a perfectly clear and refreshing with a vibrant flavor that is perfect for this tea with a cooling, crisp finish.
