Belvedere’s Lemon Tea vodka makes Tea Time a perfect summer drink

Image
Belvedere suggests you mix its latest vodka with either iced tea or lemonade.

If there’s a perfect spirit to sip and savor poolside, it just might be Belvedere’s Lemon Tea. The vodka’s flavor lends itself to summery libations—even Arnold Palmer would take his kid-friendly combo up a notch with this stuff.

And a number of partygoers did just that Saturday afternoon as the Polish vodka company celebrated the flavor’s launch at Cosmopolitan’s Boulevard Pool.

“Can I get another shot of Belvedere? All I can taste is the lemon,” said one attendee. The bartender’s apt reply: “That’s good.”

And it was. As was Tea Time, one of the featured cocktails. The Lemon Tea vodka paired beautifully with coconut ginger rooibos zingiber tea and married with the drink’s citrus flavors for a refreshing libation with a nice, crisp ginger beer finish. Las Vegas’ summer season is still in its prime for quite some time, and that means many more days by the pool to come.

What will you be drinking?
