Ice Tea... Fresh Brewed Ice Tea...not sun tea. Brewed at least twice a day at our house to get thru the 100+ temps and no air conditioning. .

Shari said...

Love your redwork...just so pretty and inspiring. Iced tea and iced coffees are our favourites around here. Also, love to cut up a lemon and float it in a pitcher of water...so very tasty!

Deb A said...

Good old H2O is my favorite beverage... although I do indulge in an iced coffee when it is really hot and humid out. All this stitch work is making me want to pull out my book on rework and try some.

Sorcha girl said...

I love to sit on my porch and listen to the birds in the afternoon with a glass of ice tea. The flowers in my garden are in full bloom. Hummingbirds fly in if I sit quietly. Thanks for a chance in the giveaway. Your blog is new to me and I took a moment to browse. Love your projects!

I love tea and lemonade in the summer, also after I am done sewing a nice glass of chilled White Zin to enjoy!

bookworm said...

When it's hot, humid and sticky in Illinois,mi love a big glass of sweet tea, brewed the way my aunts taught me. You put tea bags in boiling water in a pot, take it off the heat and let it sit. Take out the teabags after 5 minutes and put in half a cup of sugar. Pour over ice in a pitcher, adding a little water if it's too dark. Pour over ice in a glass and enjoy!
