Iced Tea Mixology

Last year, we celebrated National Iced Tea Day with a Freshly Brewed Iced Tea Mixology party and it was such a hit that we had to include it among our favorite Iced Tea recipes.  You can even make the party interactive by having your family and friends create their favorite Iced Tea mixes and swap recipes! The best part is that it only takes a fun setup of juices, fruits, herbs and freshly brewed Dunkin’ Donuts Iced Tea. Add in a set of mason jars and fun straws, and before you know it, you’ll be in the summer spirit.  For inspiration, check out last year’s blog for some of our favorite Iced Tea Mixology combinations.


Panzanella Salad and Iced Tea Vinaigrette

This refreshing salad is a colorful mix of vegetables, grilled chicken, fruit and our very own blueberry muffins. Topped with our Iced Tea Vinaigrette, this Dunkin’ spin on this classic Florentine dish will leave you smiling. Don’t believe us? Try this easy recipefor yourself and let us know how it goes!

Sweet Tea Glazed Chicken

Last but certainly not least, we have our flavorful Sweet Tea Glazed Chicken. We love this dish so much, we featured it in ourMemorial Day grilling favorites blog last month. This chicken dish is coated with our freshly brewed authentic Southern style Sweet Tea, giving it a perfect savory and sweet balance. Add some fresh grilled veggies on the side and you have a complete meal perfect for the warm weather. Try this recipe out on Father’s Day and we promise that you won’t disappoint.
