Virgin Long Island Iced Tea

May 24th, 2018 Drink of the Week


This drink is really refreshing, is easy to make and has very few ingredients. You could play around with the quantities of each ingredient to find the taste you like.

* 1 cup of strong tea (I used Red Bush but you could use any gumboot tea or English Breakfast etc)
* Ginger beer
* Lemon
* Ice

* Brew the tea and leave to go cold (I used 2 teabags for 1 cup of water)
* Half fill a long glass with ice
* 3/4 fill the glass with tea
* Top up with ginger beer
* Squeeze in half a lemon
* Garnish with a lemon wedge
