I could drink these all day. Which would obviously be bad, so I’ll refrain from that (and I recommend you do too 🙂 ). But, these are such a perfect cocktail for this time of the year! We are big drinkers of sweet tea in this house, so it’s really not many more steps to concoct these tasty boozy treats when it’s 5 o’clock. Orrr…. 1 o’clock. At the cottage. On the beach. Sounds ahhh-mazing, right?
I love slushy drinks in the summer because all that ice is just so refreshing! The tart lemony-ness in these vodka slushies also helps to cut the sharpness of the vodka.

- 2 family-sized iced tea bags
- ½ cup white sugar
- 1 lemon, juiced
- 2 ½ cups crushed ice
- 1 ½ cups iced tea
- 3 oz. vodka
- ½ lemon, juiced
- In a medium-sized saucepan, bring half the water to a boil. Remove from heat and add the tea bags. Cover and allow to steep for 10 minutes. Remove the tea bags and transfer iced tea to a pitcher. Add 2 cups of cold water, sugar, and lemon juice and stir to combine. Refrigerate until completely chilled.
- Combine ice, iced tea, vodka and lemon juice in a blender. Blend until a slushy consistency. Pour into glasses and serve with lemon slices. Enjoy! (This makes about 2 drinks.)
