Last week I posted my recipe for sweet tea (or was it earlier this week? – these summer days and weeks are melting into one another) and promised you a few sweet tea cocktails recipes from it.

I’d planned on spacing them out a bit – maybe a week apart, at least for the first one – but apparently I’ve got some boozy readers who really want them now! And, as luck would have it, I too can be a bit boozy and really enjoy making cocktails at home.

This one may be too easy to claim that I’ve actually “created” a cocktail (somehow adding vodka to “insert-any-other-liquid-beverage-here” doesn’t quite seem like cocktail creation) but since I’ve never made nor heard of sweet tea with vodka in combination, I’m going to claim it.

Don’t forget the fresh mint, too, it really does make all the difference both in taste and presentation. And since I was recently picked up a massive amount of vodka, have a mint plant that is growing as if it was a weed and can’t seem to make enough sweet tea to keep up with demand around here, let’s just say that I’ve been enjoying quite a many of these sweet tea with vodka & fresh mint cocktails.
