September is here, but that doesn’t mean we need to pack up the sweet tea lemonade and whiskey for good! One of my favorite cocktails this summer was one that we made for my friends’ afternoon tea themed engagement party. The sweet tea was in honor of the bride-to-be (a North Carolina gal) and the whiskey was the no-brainer complement. Although this was a refreshing summer concoction, leave out the lemon and garnish with a cinnamon stick for an autumnal twist. You could serve it hot or cold and you most likely already have most of the ingredients at home!
