A spiced rum tea brewed to perfection. Picture supplied

When one thinks of the word ‘brew’, tea is normally the first drink to come to mind.

While a tea-drinker is often thought of as a particular kind of person, not all palettes are the same. 

Some like Ceylon, others like Chamomile, and then there are those who prefer Earl Grey. 

If tea is not necessarily your thing, Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum suggests stirring up the Backyard Tea cocktail – our take on a lovely afternoon tipple. 
The Backyard Tea cocktail isn’t your old dorm room concoction. Instead, take pride, be inventive, and make sure it’s properly brewed and mixed. 

This drink is made up of Sailor Jerry’s spiced rum, iced tea and lemonade, definitely not just some thrown-together mess, but a well-melded cocktail that’s worth an extra bit of effort – especially if you are making homemade iced tea and lemonade. Winning!
