Nothing quite quenches my thirst on a long hot summer day like a crisp, cold glass of iced tea. It's my go-to refreshment, and I like to have a pitcher at the ready should hot and parched guests appear at my front door (or should the mailman be in need of a cool-down and momentary reprieve from the sun and heat.) 

I prefer my traditional black iced tea unsweetened, but I switch it up every day--green tea, with agave syrup, with lemonade mixed in, spiked with a shot of vodka... you name it, I'll give it a go in the name of refreshment. 

Since today is National Iced Tea Day, and I know I'm not the only enthusiast (our own Nicole is hooked!), I thought I'd round up a few favorite ways to up the ante.
