Tipsy Tea

Sweet tea never tasted so good—especially for picnickers bent on unwinding after a long workweek. Try it with a lunch of fried chicken and deviled eggs and see if you don’t agree.

2 ounces orange-flavored vodka, chilled
6 ounces Sweet Tea (recipe follows), chilled
Garnish: 1/2 orange wheel (optional)

Add vodka and tea to an iced tea glass filled with ice; stir well. Garnish, if desired.

Sweet Tea
10 cups cold water
2 family-size or 8 regular tea bags
3/4 cup sugar

Boil 3 cups water, then add tea bags; continue boiling for 1 minute. Cover and set aside to steep for about 15 minutes.

Remove and discard tea bags. Add the sugar, stirring to dissolve.

Pour tea mixture into a 1-gallon container, then add the remaining 7 cups cold water. Stir to combine.

Makes 2 1/2 quarts
