At least this summer, we will be able to drink with our vaxxed friends in the pool.
And unlike last year when we had to toast to imaginary buddies a la Wilson in Castaway, we finally have several genuine reasons to celebrate, too.
So while you’re in the everything-but-beer canned booze aisle in the grocery store this week, keep an eye out for Owl’s Brew Boozy Tea, a special spiked beverage that’s finally available in Texas.
Unlike other hard teas and seltzers, Owl’s Brew features only 100% real fruit and botanicals. If you need a reminder of why this is such a rare thing, click here for the terrifying truth about what “natural flavors” really contain. Beaver anal glands in your cocktail, anyone?
They sent us a PARTEA Pack last week to sample and not only did we love the taste, but we were also surprised at how much you can really taste the brewed tea. The flavors have all been carefully selected and blended by founder and tea sommelier, Jennie Ripps, so that’s why they’re so great.
Among the flavors in the multi-pack, we gravitated toward their newest flavor, Jasmine, Blueberry & Lemon, which made us yearn for summer patio sipping all over again.
Poured over ice, it’s a perfect hot-weather refresher.
And as much as we love spilling the tea metaphorically, we were very careful to not lose a single drop of Owl’s Brew.
Because that would be quite unwise, indeed.
