Four Corners Iced Tea Cocktail

We came up with this patriotic cocktail recipe while traveling to the four corners in the Southwestern United States.


We liked it so much that we gave it a name in honor of this region and serve it every 4th of July party now. Nothing like the east coast version, this cocktail is made from real iced tea, and is just as delicious served as a mocktail or a cocktail.

Ingredients
  • 2 Ounces of Black Tea
  • 1 Ounce of 7-up
  • 2 Ounces of Vodka (for the cocktail version)
  • 1 Teaspoon of fresh Lemon Juice
  • Ice
  • 1 Feijoa or Star Fruit for garnish
Directions

After brewing your black tea, allow it to cool, and then muddle it with the 7up, lemon juice and vodka if you are making the cocktail.

OPour your mixture over ice and garnish with a Feijoa (as shown) or a star fruit to give it a hint of fruit.
