Classics never go out of style–and that is definitely true when it comes to summer cocktails. Nothing is better on a hot summer night than a gin-and-tonic, a mojito, or even a frozen fruit concoction that is topped with a mini umbrella. My go-to classic is an alcoholic twist on the traditional Arnold Palmer… the John Daly. This cocktail is a refreshing combination of lemonade, iced tea, and sweet tea vodka, creating a perfectly sweet drink that showcases the flavors of summer!
It starts with a mason jar. Fill the jar three-quarters full of ice.
Then add in some sweet tea vodka. It may sound like an interesting alcohol choice, but this type of vodka adds a sweet smokiness to the final drink.
Pour in a bit of lemonade.
Add in a bit of iced tea. I always have a pitcher of diet iced tea in my fridge, waiting to be added to John Daly cocktails!
Finally, add in a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. The addition of the lemon brightens the whole drink up and adds a nice fresh element.
