 I have to say, drinks are definitely one of my favorite parts of summer! There is nothing like sitting out on a hot day with a cold drink in hand! mmm. During Christmas I love drinking apple cider, and this Maple Spiced Iced Tea is totally the Summer equivalent. And besides, we all love tea right? :) Give it a try!
