Raspberry Iced Tea Punch – Fresh berries, limeade and Raspberry Iced Tea come together to create this incredibly delicious and refreshing summer Punch drink!
Because yummy sweet Snapple® Raspberry Iced Tea makes for a perfectly awesome Punch!
First things first, HAPPY MONDAY! Cheers to a new week!
Second things second, HAPPY June 1! You know what that means? It’s SUMMER! (<- say it in Olaf’s voice – it sounds EVEN better!) And what do we do in Summer? We sip on refreshing, delicious cocktails!
Virgin and alcoholic, alike. Of course… ahem.
So I know it doesn’t feel like it, at least for those of us out here in Indiana, but hot, humid days are on their way. I promise. In thinking about getting a head start, I made you this Raspberry Iced Tea Punch, the one and ONLY cold drink that you will need for now and for always.
I don’t really know how to explain it, but this Punch is like a whoa!-yummy-combo! we have going on upinhere. There’s the tang of the lime, the sweetness of the iced tea, and the burst of flavor from the berries. Add some rum to it and go to town!
Can we talk about how to serve drinks?
Part of the appeal of serving drinks is the presentation, right?
Well, then, one word: GARNISHES. Yep. Garnishes make you look like you spent extra time and some TLC on creating the drinks, thus plan on having extra lemon slices, lime slices, fresh raspberries and strawberries. Tall, clean glasses are also a must, and don’t forget the ice! In addition, be sure you have ice cream… and fresh fruit for balance.
However, if you are going to enjoy this sipper all by yourself during your Me-Time, allow me to say just one more word – RUM. Yep… add a shot of rum to your glass, turn on some 80s on Pandora, and keep an extra bottle of Snapple® Straight Up™ Tea next to you in case you overdid it with the rum. The kiddos might question your midday nap. This happened to a friend of mine…
