If you can’t wait for this weekend – you are not alone! It’s America’s birthday AND a long weekend.
Families and friends will gather for outdoor lunches, blankets and baskets will be dusted off, simple and delicious meals will be served — there is no better way to spend a summer day.
Make your picnic festive with some Long Island Iced Tea! It’s the perfect drink to sip while sitting out in the sun on a hot day.
Here’s my favorite recipe for you to enjoy before the fireworks — Happy 4th of July everybody!
Long Island Iced Tea
1/2 oz light rum
1/2 oz vodka
1/2 oz gin
1/2 oz gold tequila
1/2 oz Cointreau or Triple Sec
1/2 oz freshly squeezed lemon juice
Orange or lemon wedge, for garnish
Pour rum, vodka, gin, tequila, Cointreau, and lemon juice over ice in a highball glass. Stir, and add a splash of cola for color and to round the flavors. Garnish with orange or lemon wedge. Enjoy!
