Summertime Iced Tea My Way!

OK, this is my new summer drink, folks!!!
First, ya gotta have simple syrup, because sugar doesn't dissolve in cold iced tea. (And it's easier to use)
Simple syrup:
2 c sugar (again, I use Splenda)
1 c water
Mix sugar and water together in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Cook for about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and cool to room temp.
I usually keep this in an old pint liquor bottle (Ran through dishwasher after each use, of course) and with a 1 ounce bar pourer closing up neck of bottle.
  • In an Iced Tea glass:
  • Fill with ice.
  • 2 oz of flavored vodka (This week it's Peach)
  • 4 oz Iced Tea
  • 1 oz Simple Syrup
Stir well, and serve!!!
