Quench Your Thirst – 10 Best Summer Ice Tea Recipes
Can you believe half the year is gone?! Spring has moved on and been replaced by the hot days of summer – ugh! And since I live in the California high desert, there are days when the temperatures easily reach the triple digits. Sometimes the heat is so unbearable that all I want to do is walk around naked and sit in a tube of ice to cool off. But because I know being naked would scar my kids and that sitting in a tub of ice isn’t practical, I have another way to keep cool – drink lots of ice tea!
