The best "Iced Tea"
Disclaimer: these are Long Island Ice Teas... so do not serve to anyone under 21!
We were part of the "test" group for a recipe that our friend Dave was trying to perfect. The above picture is the final product. Another try was made about a month earlier....
Here is Dave's original recipe:
Simple Syrup (yields 10 oz):
- Heat 1 cup water to boil.
- Add 1 cup sugar and return to boil.
- 1 part simple syrup
- 1 part fresh lemon juice (I also use some fresh lime juice)
Long Island Ice Tea mix (all clear liquors):
- 1 part vodka
- 1 part tequila
- 1 part rum
- 1 part gin
- 1/2 part triple sec
- 1-1/2 parts sour mix
If each part is 1 oz., then this would be 6 oz. total mix (will yield 2 servings).
If each part is 6 oz., then this would be 36 oz. total mix (will yield 12 servings).
Mix with coke at ratio of 3:2 (3 oz. mix and 2 oz coke).
Put in glass with lots of ice!
Add lemon garnish.
