... and I always thought Long Island Iced Tea had tea in it! Since it doesn't, here is a yummy recipe for a cocktail that does and what's more, it t is equally good hot or cold:

GEORGIAN BEEKEEPERS TEA

Ingredients:
600ml strong clear tea
100gms honey
7oz vodka
A sprinkle of vanilla sugar on top (optional)

Method:
Mix everything together and bring just to the boil. Serve hot in small cups or cool and serve in tall glasses with ice and a sprig of mint.

I had a look at he history of Long Island Iced Tea and there are heaps of conflicting stories. The one I like best is that it was invented during the Prohibitiion when alcohol as not allowed) to look innocent like normal iced tea whereas in fact it "kicked a punch!" Apparently there are a number of cocktails disguised in this way.

These look great. Funny that they don't contain any 'tea'. When I saw this recipe I thought about homemade Iced Tea, It tastes fantastic (just as the bought stuff, ACTUALLY, even better!!).

I have some nice honey vodka at home which would go fantastic with this!! I think this recipe would go down a treat, just not keen on buying THREE more different types of alcohol - now that's a bit of an expensive exercise!!!

I think that is indeed the trouble with cocktails - all the weird ingredients required! WE just had a fanstastic club fundraiser at the North Shore croquet club - tabletop speed croquet and cocktails! Everyone donated a bottle of some kind of alcohol they had lying around but didnt use, and then we made an amazing cocktail menu up - it was fantastic fun! So maybe have a cocktail party with friends, bring a bottle style!

This one would be lovely with 42 below manuka honey vodka - delicious and immune boosting too!

I've never tried the manuka honey flavoured one. It does sound good though!
