Iced Tea Recipes Require Ice
It wasn’t until the 1930’s that consumers were able to freeze their own ice cubes and expect to have ice readily and affordably available. Prior to that, ice was actually imported by ship from northern frozen lakes in large slabs and insulated to be kept cold during the voyage. Beverages served with ice were not daily fare which is one reason that tea served with alcohol as a cocktail or a party punch were the more common iced tea recipes.
Now that we’re coming to the end of this year’s Iced Tea Month, we wanted to share some of the regular iced tea recipes that we’ve published over the years as well as some of the “adult” iced tea recipes.
Happy Iced Tea Month!
