I love Long Island Iced Teas. I’ve learned, though, that you want to take your time and enjoy them – otherwise, your body will remind you just how much liquor you have consumed… So anyway, our local Cheddar’s restaurant has a Texas Tea on their menu that is just awesome (and cheap)! And me being the Junior Alcoholic that I am, I had to go figure out how to make it.
You’ll need a 16 oz or larger glass for this – I use pint mason jars. First thing you’ll do is fill the glass halfway with lemonade. If you use powdered lemonade, that will be 1 rounded tablespoon of powder (check your directions to make sure) in 8 oz of water. Then add 1 oz of amaretto, 1 oz of vodka (taste doesn’t matter here – but you want something that won’t leave you hungover in the morning), and 2.5 oz of Firefly Sweet Tea vodka. Stir gently and add ice to chill. Make sure that you drink plenty of water before you go to bed – this one can hurt if you consume too much or too quickly!
