A cold drink is so refreshing any time of year, which is why we partnered with Smirnoff Ice for this post.

I love sipping cold iced tea on a hot day — especially with lots of lemon. Mix together this drink that friends will love, thanks to the flavorful addition of ginger and a splash of bourbon, resulting in a winning cocktail.
