Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Use your favorite tea for this cocktail. Look for locally made teas with stevia in the ingredient list for a unique, sweet flavor sensation.
  • tip 2
    Don't have time to steep your vodka? Try steeping your tea bag in the lemon juice 10 minutes before serving.
