Everyone goes to the Olive Garden to enjoy eating Italian-family style. If you go there for a summer lunch, you will probably want something light and refreshing to drink, like iced tea.
Olive Garden offers you a choice of iced teas that go very well with summer lunches. One of my favorites is peach iced tea, although it doesn’t appear to be on the Olive Garden’s menu anymore. However, you can easily make this iced tea and enjoy it at home.
