For me, iced tea reigns supreme in the summertime. It’s the drink du jour for every occasion in my hometown, and we all know it goes with anything and everything.

This drink should be celebrated, and, as luck would have it, June is National Iced Tea Month!

Perfect timing, right? There’s no better way to beat the heat than with a cold cup of it in your hand.

But making it can be tricky.

Brew it too long and it becomes bitter. Pour the sugar in too late and it doesn’t dissolve.

Luckily, we’ve got a foolproof iced tea recipe that you’ll use all season long.

Want something a little stronger for a backyard celebration? Try making this spiked sweet tea version.

What’s your favorite summertime drink?
