You guys. I’ve been so wrapped up in this cookie making business over here that I’ve totally slacked on the fun food holidays.
June is almost over and almost the myriad of foods that claim to be celebrated throughout the month (national Turkey month in June, really?), it’s National Ice Tea Month!
Have you been getting your daily dose? I’m sure my Southerners are nodding their heads yes as they sip on their sweet teas – I lived down there for 4 years, I know you love that stuff! As a yankee though, I prefer my tea unsweetened or even better spiked with a little extra something to enjoy at the end of the day.
Since I was recently asked to become a member of the Blogtender Nation by Blue Chair Bay Rum, we thought there is no better way to celebrate National Ice Tea Month than with a cool glass of ice tea and a little splash of rum.
Blue Chair Bay Rum is a new-ish premium rum created by Kenny Chesney – yes that Kenny Chesney of country, signer-songwriter fame. There are three flavors to choose from that will instantly send you to the beach once one of those bottles hits your table, White, Coconut and Coconut Spiced. The bottle is probably one of the prettiest I’ve seen, frosted glass that looks like the ocean. Any cocktail made with Blue Chair Bay can really take you away to a tropical place. Just take your drink outside on your porch, close your eyes and dream away.
Thanks to Blue Chair Bay Rum you can win a bottle and dream away with a rummy cocktail of your own at home, just keep reading below on how to enter to win.
Since ice tea always equals summer to me, I wanted to add a complimentary fruit to it that also relates to summer.
As peaches start to come into season, I start to remember the peach farm that was 15 minutes down the road from us growing up. We would buy bags of these juicy delicious peaches every summer. Biting into a perfectly ripe one would cause juice to drip down your chin, hands, neck and shirt. Can you get any more summery than that? I don’t think you can. Summer is cause to get dirty, eat with your hands and have a tall glass of ice tea to drink it all down.
