I started with a bottle of grenadine, a can of Diet Sierra Mist and already brewed unsweetened tea that has been cooled. There is plenty of sugar in the grenadine syrup. I used an Orange Blossom Oolong that I bought from Uncle Sam's Niece this past weekend. You could use any mild tea to your liking, though I would suggest an oolong, herbal, or white. Maybe even a fruit flavored green tea.
Pour a little grenadine in the bottom of glass. A little bit definitely goes a long way:
Top with cold brewed tea of your choice:
Fill the remainder of the class with lemon-lime soda:
And now you have a tea cocktail that tastes like cherries and tea. I plopped a maraschino cherry in the bottom for fun.
I think these would be cute to serve as guests arrive and you are waiting for the stragglers. Especially for a bridal tea--although I think I would skip the lemon lime soda and use sparkling wine instead :).
