Not a lot of things beat a sunny afternoon in San Francisco - okay, that might be a little biased - but what can make your weekend sunshine a lot more refreshing and happy is this sweet tea cocktail.
Being from the land of the "Cuba Libres" and "Mojitos," and loving tea, I couldn't help sharing.
Also, this is a perfect drink you can serve at any tea party once your guests finish with the petit fours, the night falls and the weekend fun begins to call!
