Strawberry Grapefruit Whiskey Iced Tea

Strawberry Grapefruit Whiskey Iced Tea
Strawberry Grapefruit Whiskey Iced Tea came about as a collaborative process between Colt and I. I had suggested to him we should do another iced tea like the Peach Whiskey Iced Tea I shared last summer. As we wandered around the grocery store checking out the produce we settled on Strawberry Grapefruit, two of my favorite combinations when in season.

I usually add the whiskey as I'm serving the cocktails to have a nonalcoholic option available so everyone can enjoy the Strawberry Grapefruit Iced Tea.

It's perfect for gatherings like Mother's Day brunch, Memorial Day, or a Father's Day BBQ!

I also like to keep a pitcher of the Strawberry Grapefruit Iced Tea on hand just to enjoy at the end of a warm day on the patio.
