Long Island Ice Tea Mocktail
Jump feet first into summer with this thirst-quenching mocktail
Dreaming of sunny afternoons, unwinding horizontally on a cushioned sun lounger, looking out over a still blue pool with an ice-cold beverage in hand? Yeah, us too! While we might have to keep on dreaming about the pool for the time being, we can help with topping up your glass with a delicious mocktail. Take time out, kick back and relax with this refreshing, virgin long island ice tea – perfect to enjoy alongside a barbecue (have you tried out our Coffee Barbecue Sauce Recipe yet?) or poured into a flask to wash down a picnic with. You could even book a poolside holiday while you sip!
