Cocktail Friday :: Texas Tea

Texas Tea

As many of you may know, tomorrow, March 2nd, is Texas Independence Day. We thought we’d celebrate in true Texas style with this week’s signature cocktail idea, The Texas Tea. Here in Texas, we like to put our own spin on things so this cocktail is a twist on a traditional Long Island Iced Tea recipe. Get rid of the gin and put in some tequila and viola! You have a perfect Texas Tea.

A Texas Tea signature cocktail would be perfect for any event that needs a classic, tasty beverage that has universal appeal. Weddings, corporate events, social gatherings… you name it, the Texas Tea is sure to be a hit!
