June is National Iced Tea Month!

According to our Food Celebration Calendars, it's June, aka National Iced Tea Month! While we sometimes wilt under extreme heat & humidity, a tall frosty glass of Iced Tea always refreshes and revitalizes us.

Back in the day, we only knew about the classic iced tea- chilled and sweetened Black Tea like Lipton's. Today we reach for any number of iced tea concoctions including ones with teas ranging from Green to Hibiscus. We've also seen some inventive tea cocktails like a Green Tea Margarita and a Cucumber & Green Tea Martini.

To help you find the most refreshing Iced Tea drinks, we fired up the FoodPair search engine and found a handful of great recipes from across the Web.

Apple Ginger Mint Iced Tea
This one sounds and looks delicious!
Ingredients: honey, mint, apple, ginger, water, apple cider, ice, green tea

Green Tea Margarita
For the adults, here's an iced tea cocktail.

Sun Tea
Extremely simple, yet incredibly refreshing.

Lemon Verbena Mint Herb Tea
We love pairing mint with lemon.

Homemade Chai Tea
Make your own chai, shake with ice and strain.

Let's get cooking and chilling!
