8 ounces vodka 

6 cups Sweet Tea, recipe follows

Sweet Tea:

6 black tea bags, such as orange pekoe

1/2 cup sugar

Pour the lemonade into ice cube trays. Add 1 mint leaf to each cube. Freeze for at least 2 hours or overnight.

Sweet Tea:

In a medium pot over high heat, bring 2 cups water to a boil. Take off the heat and add the tea bags. Steep the tea for 5 minutes, then remove the tea bags. Stir in the sugar until dissolved. This will be the concentrated base of your tea.

Add the tea mixture to a pitcher filled with ice. Top off with 4 cups of water. Serve immediately or refrigerate, covered, for up to a week.
