Drink: Jolene

The Jolene is somewhat of a slippery slope. It tastes like tea — not a cocktail — so if you don’t keep it in check things can get carried away pretty quickly. Kind of like an ego. But boy is this cocktail tasty. You may have to hunt down the sweet tea vodka, but it’s worth it. With the fresh peach slice for garnish — and depending on how many Jolenes you enjoy — you can say you’ve had your daily serving of fruit, too.
