Drink of the Week: Texas Sweet Tea

SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Classes have begun, but summer is still upon us; thus, sweet tea is still firmly on the menu.

This country-style beverage comes from Cheddar’s, a hidden gem of a restaurant near Costco in Coralville, offering an array of delicious and affordable (and sizable) drinks to match its healthy food portions.

Taste: The Texas Sweet Tea is served in a margarita-like glass but is as soft on the senses as fresh-brewed iced tea.

The primary alcohols are Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka and Amaretto, which are hardly detectable around the perfectly balanced lemonade and tea flavoring.

Cheddar’s could rename this drink the adult Arnold Palmer.

Advice: This sugary beverage may be a bit too sweet for Guinness or whiskey lovers, but is perfect for the Southern lady in all of us.

With a $4.25 price and palatable taste, you may ask your waiter to keep the Texas Sweet Tea flowing all night long, but beware: These babies can catch up with you — which is probably why there is a limit of two per guest.
