Back Porch Summer Nights

As the sun sets on the last few weeks of summer, I enjoy the quiet moments of sippin’ sweet tea on our back porch that overlooks the barn. I hope you are taking time to take in the cooler nights and enjoy this recipe:

Back Porch Sippin’ TeaIMG_7966

  • 1-2 oz. First Harvest Moonshine
  • 2 ¬†Tbsp. of Lemon (1/2 lemon)
  • 16 oz. of Sweet Tea of your choice (Arizona Sweet Tea is recommended)

This recipe works with blackberries too!

Shine On!
