Earl Grey lemonade is a perfectly refreshing and easy drink to keep you cool all summer long. Earl grey tea with its bergamot orange infused flavor is mixed with fresh lemonade for a tart, tangy, delicious drink.

I’m getting in the mood for summer, can you tell? Our weather started to warm up and then reverted back to cooler, gloomy days. I’m OK with this because California has been getting over this drought we always seem to have and was declared officially over last month.

If you’re familiar with an Arnold Palmer iced tea (it’s regular black tea and lemonade), this is my British twist on an American classic drink. Earl Grey tea has been around since the 1830’s and it’s the first drink I crave when I’m back in England. Earl Grey has floral and orange flavors in the tea so it seems like the perfect flavor pairing with tart lemonade.

This lemonade is perfect for long summer days, but it can also be taken into the evening by spiking it with a little vodka to give you the option to spike, if you like.

I love making drinks using tea. I’ve previously made an Earl Grey ginger spritzer which is so refreshing with a fizzy finish from ginger beer. This drink is also non-alcoholic.

In the warm weather, I always have a pitcher of iced tea in the fridge, but this summer, I’ll be keeping a pitcher of this Earl Grey lemonade, my new favorite.
