Did you know Long Island Iced Tea doesn’t actually have anything to do with tea? It simply tastes like tea when made correctly. Today, we are going to take a few fresh ingredients from our yards and gardens to make this refreshing summer time drink.
Ingredients for your Long Island Iced Tea:
- 1oz Vodka
- 1oz Gin
- 1oz Tequila
- 1oz Rum
- 1oz Triple Sec
- Sweet & Sour (I put a very easy to make sour recipe from scratch at the bottom of this blog)
- Splash of Coke
- Fresh garden-picked Raspberries
Pour all of the ingredients over ice. Shake and pour into a glass. Garnish with a lemon slice and mint to serve.
Sweet & Sour :
You can buy sour from any liquor or grocery store,
but it is so much better when you can make it yourself. Here is a simple recipe anyone can make:
- 1c Water
- 1c Sugar
- 1c Lime Juice
- 1c Lemon Juice
Mix the sugar and water together and stir until the sugar is dissolved. You may need to add a little heat. If you do heat the water, let it cool. Then mix in the lime and lemon juice and refrigerate.
