      ... 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:


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

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