Whether you enjoy it with or without lemon, alongside a stuffed companion, southern style, unsweetened, or spiked, today’s hot weather is perfect for iced tea. In my down time I prefer my iced tea spiked with vodka, a little cocktail I call an Icepick. See below for the recipe:
Start with a glass filled sufficiently with ice.
Add 1-2 shots of vodka (or your preferred level of stiffness).
Fill the remainder of the glass with freshly brewed iced tea. Any kind works, but I usually go for Lipton tea or black tea.
Top off the cocktail with some fresh lemon juice/lemon wedge.
** The key to making the perfect Icepick is all about the vodka/tea/lemon ratio — maximize the vodka, but don’t let it overpower. The drink should be refreshing, and after a few it’ll sneak up on you. Cheers!
