apparently it’s just the colour of iced tea. It’s made with vodka, tequila, light rum, triple sec, gin, and a splash of cola. perhaps some lemon or lime juice.

I used to like the Long Beach variant, where the coke is replaced with a splash of cranberry

so cold brew peach + chai iced tea with a splash of rum and ginger/lemon balm syrup doesn’t have a name, but I can say it was quite refreshing after an after-dinner walk.

It’s actually alchemy that turns the alcohol and stuff into iced tea. It truly has an iced tea flavour. Maybe it’s my 2021 drink

Today I learned that ‘draught’ is pronounced the same as ‘draft’

I guess I had always thought it was a different word pronounced similarly to drought?

Most places provide breaks, but this lesson brought to you by my annoyance that my workplace is returning to 10 minute breaks instead of 15 minute breaks because the longer ones were a COVID consideration and that’s “over.” We also get a paid lunch so it’s ~fine~ but LOL to my idea that the state might have rules…

I wonder when that changesd, because that didn’t used to be the law here (the breaks used to be mandatory for everyone).
