Get Tipsy With 15 Summery Ice Tea Cocktails

While we’re all for sipping regular iced tea, there’s nothing like mixing it up into a cocktail (or three). Ice tea is the perfect mixer for a summer sipper, especially when enjoyed outdoors with a good book and your feet up. From fruity to floral to downright spicy, it’s time to brew up one of these 15 delicious tea cocktails to turn even the most basic beverage into a serious summer treat.  

1. Peach Julep Tea: This cocktail uses toasty cognac and rooibos tea to warm up the flavor of peaches. (via Serious Eats)
