TUESDAY, APRIL 21 NATIONAL TEA DAY Tweak your iced tea! What’s more refreshing than a glass of iced tea? Iced tea with lemonade ice cubes, which add a touch of Arnold Palmer–like flavor.

Pour into an ice cube tray and freeze. When you’re ready to enjoy, fill a glass with iced tea, then add a few of the ice cubes and a mint garnish.
