National Iced Tea Day is June 10. To celebrate the start of a sunny weekend (and all your summer party needs), we made ourselves a batch of ice tea with teapigs’ Darjeeling Earl Grey tea and Lot 40 Canadian Rye. This spiked iced tea is super easy to make and is refreshingly tasty.
Darjeeling Earl Grey North Course is developed by Canadian Whisky Ambassador, Colin MacDougall. Inspired by Canada’s 150th birthday and the upcoming summer golf season, it’s a delicious yet unique take on the classic Arnold Palmer.
