Basic Iced Tea Fizzy Mocktail

When I was sick and under heavy medication, I could not consume any alcoholic beverages. I would want a cocktail every now and then. I only wanted one because I could not have one. Seriously, I didn't consume one alcoholic beverage in 2013, so I don't drink that often. I drank a lot of tea and wanted that fizz of my favorite cocktails. One day I decided to put ginger ale in my tea and the rest is history. I got the fizz I wanted without the alcohol.

There is no step-by-step recipe for this. Here is the overview for one of my favorites:

1/2 pitcher raspberry iced tea - Or make regular iced tea and add a scoop of Crystal Light Raspberry Ice
2 cans Canada Dry Ginger Ale

Just add the Canada Dry Ginger Ale to the tea and you're done! If you throw a party or have a few friends over this is a nice alternative for those who don't/can't/ drink. I specify Canada Dry because it has the most fizz of any ginger ale I've drank. The fizz lasts longer, too.
