The Classic // Owl’s Brew // New York, NY
On the field, Bama’s crimson tide is a crushing tsunami; in the glass those waters run sweeter.
We’re talking summertime sweet tea. The weather outside might be frightful, but click-clacking ice cubes and spinning suns of sliced lemon will soothe even the bitterest chill — or defeat. And it couldn’t be easier to whip up a pitcher: icy vodka, a bottle of lemonade, and a healthy pour of Owl’s Brew. New York–mixed but classically southern, Owl’s is the first tea made specifically for cocktails. Their Classic is a traditional English black with a hint of citrus, sweetened with all-natural agave. Add sliced lemons and tons of ice, then drain — just not on the coach.
