Definitely not a teetotaler’s tea – this cocktail is a unique mix of a margarita and good old iced tea. The margarita part you know – tequila, triple sec and lime juice. The twist comes by adding a sweetened tea concentrate of Red Diamond Tea® and agave nectar. Margarita plus tea: shaken and served over ice.
