Twist Your Tongue on the Ultimate ‘Texas Tea’

By  | 


Are you a fan of the Long Island iced tea? If so, you’re going to adore our tequila-loving Texas Twisted Tea recipe. As stated by Charlie from allrecipes.com, “The Texas part of the tea comes from the tequila as opposed to a Long Island iced tea, which uses gin instead of tequila. This is the standard Bartender’s recipe for a Texas Tea.”

So, here ’tis — Texas Tea, minus the gin and double the tequila. Add a lemon or lime slice, and drink in moderation, y’all. Enjoy!
