This Tropical Tea is an easy cocktail that is refreshing and perfect for summer!

So, lately . . . as I contemplate all the things there are to terrify me about summer (being trapped at home with three small children . . . the scorching hot midwestern weather . . . being trapped at home with three small children . . . ), I’ve been trying to focus more on all the things I love about summer. I mean, to be fair, I really have been anticipating this time of year since last September.

Lipton Tea K-Cups make it easy to have iced tea in minutes!

One of my favorite things about summer is sitting on my back deck with a cool drink and listening to the sounds of my kids playing in the back yard. Iced tea is such the perfect summer drink, and so perfect for sipping on the back deck, but every time I think about how much I want a big glass of iced tea, the thought of figuring out how to make it from scratch seems super daunting, and I just end up having a stupid can of diet soda.

That is, until I learned about Lipton’s Iced Tea K-cups! Seriously, this is the coolest thing ever. When my husband saw the Lipton Tea k-cups he said, “They should really come up with a way to make iced tea with the Keurig.”

Ummm . . . that’s exactly what they did! You just fill up a 16 oz (non glass) tumbler with ice, put it under the Keurig, pop in one of three flavors of Lipton Iced Tea (can I recommend the Iced Tea Lemonade?? SO good!), and brew in the 6 oz or 8 oz setting. You can see in the animated image above how quickly you go from a cup of ice to a nice big glass of cool iced tea.

And if you, like me, are stuck at home with three small children all summer . . . three small children who like to do crazy things like dump sand over each others heads and see how many times they can say “Why” before their mother goes insane . . . then maybe you want to use your deliciously easy Lipton Iced Tea k-cups to make yourself a sweet little cocktail.

This is like a twist on a hard Arnold Palmer, and I love love love how it turned out! Plus, with the Lipton K-cups, you can go from “WHY MOM WHY????” to sipping your Tropical Tea in about three minutes.

Heck yes!

    Great way to change up iced tea to make a refreshing cocktail for warm summer parties. I just made some raspberry tea that I bet I could change up by adding some raspberry vodka. Thanks for the idea and thanks for sharing on Wonderfully Creative Wednesday.
