Bristow Iced Tea (Original Recipe)


Yes, the infamous Long Island Iced tea is known for being a chameleon: it looks like iced tea, but there's no tea in it. Instead, it is just about every cheap booze that can fit on a speed rail. Here, the concept is the same but the taste is craft. There's real tea and lemon flavor infused into MurLarkey three tea and lemon whiskies. The experience is a bit surprising. It tastes great--strong but refreshing. 

And of course you can try to play it off as if this is an iced tea, but it's more likely that you'll be drinking from your home bar, so what's the point. If people saw how much MurLarkey I have on by bar, there'd be no need for me to pretend. 

  • 1 oz. MurLarkey lemon whiskey
  • 1 oz. MurLarkey three tea whiskey
  • 1/2 oz. triple sec
  • 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. sugar syrup (dark brown used for tea color)
  • cold filtered water
  • lemon slice and mint sprig for garnish

Combine juice, spirits and sugar in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a Collins glass full of fresh ice. Top with cold water and stir. Garnish with lemon and mint.
