Episode 024 - Not so Iced Tea

This show is dedicated to a listener named Johnny who emailed me about the Long Island Iced Tea. I was planning a different show this week but his email inspired me to do a show on alcoholic drinks that are called "tea" but don't have any tea in them. This is the result...

There are definitely a few recipes in this episode but since it is late and I just recorded and posted the episode, I'm going to bed. Tomorrow I'll update this post with the recipes given on the show.

Why am I so tired? Well I just got back from my usual Tuesday dinner at the bar at Velvet Cantina in the Mission in San Francisco and I'm completely buzzed and tired out of my mind.

Cheers!

Going back through your library of knowledge. When it comes to iced tea.... having so many different alcohols in it (the classic longs island iced tea),what other drinks can derive from the mix of these alcohols? Not all together at once necessarily. But adding carbonated drinks or juices to it/preparation methods.

This is the part about derivatives that are much funner than the ones in math/finance.
Help please. Thanks.

Go to my new www.behindthebarshow.com website to see all the updated information from my podcast. I'm no longer using blogger so this site won't be updated anymore.
