Friday’s Cocktail for Mother’s Day Weekend


Tea Tini:

Mother’s Day weekend is here and I need a refreshing cocktail to help celebrate the hardest job in the world. I used to think I could do any and everything, but being a Mom has humbled and taught me that I need a little help sometimes. So in honor of all the beautiful woman who have taken on this job either willingly or unknowingly this Tea Tini cocktail is for you. I love sweet tea and spiking it with vodka…you just can’t go wrong. It’s the perfect cool down cocktail to drink all summer long. I especially love this Tea Tini on spring and summer afternoons when a light, short drink is called for. I use a light iced tea in this refreshing vodka martini and, of course, fresh squeezed lemon juice. You could also add a splash of flavor by adding a small amount of berries, lavender, rosemary or chamomile to the steeping tea or by using your favorite tea blend.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Recipe for Tea Tini:

Ingredients:

  1. 1 3/4 ounce vodka

  2. 1 ounce sweet iced tea

  3. 1/4 ounce fresh lemon juice

  4. Lemon wedge for garnish

  5. Sugar for rimming

Directions:

Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice cubes. Shake well. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass rimmed with sugar. Garnish with the lemon wedge.

To rim the glass with sugar: moisten the rim of the glass with a lemon wedge, then fill a bowl with sugar and while holding the glass parallel to the table dab the rim of the glass into the sugar while turning slowly so that only the outer edge is covered.
