  Variations
    1. For thirst-quenching Early Mint Sun Tea, use 2 rounded
  tablespoons
       Earl Grey tea, and a sprig of mint, and omit the orange and lemon
       juice. Chill after straining the loose tea and mint.
  
    2. To make a Raspberry Fizz, fill a glass 1/3 to 1/2 full of
  Catalina
       Citrus Sun Tea, and top with your favorite sparkling water,
       flavored with either raspberry essence or raspberry juice.
  Garnish
       with skewers of fresh raspberry and mint.
    3. To make a Hollywood Spritzer, place 1 tablespoon of Cointreau in
       the bottom of a chilled glass. Fill the glass half-full of
  chilled
       Catalina Citrus Sun Tea, and top with an inexpensive champagne.
       Garnish with a strawberry.
