Recipe by Delectable Bites
A wonderful summertime cocktail made with iced tea, lemonade and vodka. Refreshing sipping! From July 2009 Bon Appetit. I add a bit more vodka than calls for, but I served this at a party the other night and it was a big hit. I also used decaffeinated tea bags as I try not to drink too much caffeine.
- 2 large tea bags for iced tea
- 1⁄2 cup boiling water
- 8 fresh mint sprigs
- 4 cups lemonade, made from frozen concentrate
- 1⁄2 cup vodka
- ice cube
- 8 lemon slices
Directions See How It's Made
- Place tea bags in a medium bowl. Add 1/2 cup boiling water. Let steep 4 minutes. Squeeze excess water from tea bags then discard tea bags. Place mint sprigs in large pitcher; mash with muddler or handle of wooden spoon until slightly bruised. Pour in tea, lemonade and vodka. Cover and chill. Fill 8 highball glasses with ice. Divide tea mixture over glasses. Serve with lemon slice or wedge. Can be made one day ahead.
