WIP Cocktail Club: Love Island Iced Tea
I’m in dire need of some light-hearted distraction at the moment, so Love Island is where I’m at 9-10pm every night for the foreseeable. I am not ashamed - it’s just another one to add to the reasons why you can never look at my Sky Planner. Despite it making me think I’m in dire need of a bikini wax and washboard abs, it’s escapism for an hour a night.
I got a text!!!
Inspired by ‘memories’ of drinking Long Island Iced tea (which given it’s made of vodka, tequila, rum, gin and cointreau - aren’t very clear memories), by which I mean the cola, I’ve created a suitably buzzin’ cocktail which won’t make you feel like you’ve been mugged off. It’s a sort of cherry coke.
Not being funny but, have a read - I think you’ll agree it’s 100% your type on paper.
Love Island Iced Tea
Ingredients (makes one cocktail)
50cl rum (I prefer dark rum)
3 (or more) maraschino cherries
2 tbsp of syrup from the cherries
150-200ml of your preferred ‘cola’
Mix all the ingredients over ice. Garnish with whatever island get-up you have to hand. Muggy.
