Looking for the newest craze in signature cocktails?  Think  Iced Tea Cocktails!  Tea cocktails are innovative, refreshing, and healthier than other high-caloric options.  Best yet, tea cocktails, one of life’s simplest pleasures, are  not only easy to prepare, they are sure to delight family and friends.  They work equally well served at a barbeque, poolside, ladies night in, dinner party, or even fundraising gala.
