Fortified Friday—Not So Sweet Tea Cocktail

I’m a big fan of tea. I prefer hot in the morning instead of coffee and if you and I were to go out to lunch together, you can count on me ordering iced tea (unsweetened) with a lemon wedge. This past weekend Brian decided to brew our very own HUGE batch. Since we had a lot of iced tea on our hands we came up with an alcoholic beverage (of course)…because why not, really? Our drink concoction came out great. Refreshing, easy to drink, with citrus and just the slightest sweetness. It really makes the perfect end-of-summer cocktail!
