July 28, 2016 – The Republic Steakhouse
Iced Tea (Charles Schumann, 1990)
Juice of half a lime
1/4 oz. orange juice
3/4 oz. triple sec
3/4 oz. brandy
3/4 oz. dark rum
3/4 to 1 1/4 oz. cola
1 c. cold tea
Stir well with crushed ice in a large highball glass and add squeezed lime half.
Christian Brothers brandy, Meyers dark rum, Cointreau. Suprisingly, not bad. The drink seems a bit watered down, but that may have been because we fumbled around trying to find the right glass.The orange juice is pretty prominent, which is nice, and the drink is not as boozy as one might think.
