Favorite Summer Time Drink

Crazy Hip Mamas blog has the Recipe Roundup up & the theme is Summer Drinks. Too be honest my favorite summer drink is Sweet tea. It just started coming up to Michigan recently. My dad has made it though for us. He boils water & uses 2 Lipton cold brew tea bags. The box calls for like 8 tea bags, but 2 is more then enough. Then he adds 1 cup of sugar to 2qts of tea. Then put in the fridge :) It is so good! I wanted to also share another non-alcoholic drink.
