Iced Tea is a form of cold tea that is usually served with ice in different flavours. Marguerite Countess of Blessington wrote about having iced tea in Naples as early as 1823. The earliest printed iced tea recipes originate from the 1870s. In her 1871 cookbook, Mary Ann Bryan Mason wrote of iced tea: " should be well iced". In the 1860s, iced tea became popular in the United States. Initially considered a novelty, it became fairly popular in the 1870s.  Iced tea was featured on hotel menus and sold at railroad stations, and recipes were published. After Richard Blechynden introduced it at the 1904 World's Fair in St. Louis, its popularity increased. Because of the popularity of iced tea in the United States, a teaspoon with a long handle has been included in regular cutlery sets. The iced teaspoon is a teaspoon with a long handle that is used to swirl sugar into the tall cups in which iced tea is typically served. Summer is when iced tea is most popular.


Here are some cocktails you can prepare with iced tea-

Arnold Palmer

This recipe is very easy to make. Squeeze some lemon in a glass of iced tea. Add some vodka to it and stir well. You may also use white rum or tequila depending upon your mood. The cocktail is refreshing and delicious.

Peachy Iced Cocktail

Having a glass of peach iced tea during summer feels like heaven. Peach iced teas are refreshing and the sweet peachy flavour makes everything perfect. All you have to do is pour a shot of white rum to the iced tea and stir well. Garnish the glass with a sliced peach and enjoy your drink.

Thai Iced Tea

Thai iced tea is a spicy milky black tea blend that is a delight to drink. Add rum and Irish cream when you want to give it a kick. The spice-infused combination of Irish cream, coconut milk, and sweetened condensed milk in the spiked Thai iced tea is remarkably close to the original. This is combined with a shot of aged rum and strong black tea in an ice-filled glass to make an equally unforgettable drink.

Gin Iced Tea

Add a dash of gin to your sweet tea. The botanicals in the spirit go beautifully with a British classic like Earl Grey and this royal-tea drink is sure to become your favourite. Choose a top-shelf London dry gin to keep it authentic. With a squeeze of lemon and a pinch of sugar, you'll have a tall glass of iced tea. It's also simple to make by the pitcher for a small gathering.

Raspberry Tea Cocktail

Raspberry Iced Tea is one such beverage that is loved by all. Its pinkish and orangish colour and tangy-sweet taste are all you need during summery evenings. For the cocktail, you may add some sparkling wine to it for a perfect buzzy evening.

Mango slushy cocktail

Have you tried mango iced tea? Well, mango is the king of fruits and it rules everyone's heart throughout summers. Add a punch of vodka/tequila to the mango iced tea and stir well. This cocktail tastes amazingly delicious and is pleasing to the eyes as well.
