This ice tea lemon vodka cocktail recipe is perfect for summer! It’s cheap and easy to make a big batch cocktail for your summer parties.
If you’re looking for a cocktail that will keep you cool this summer, you’ve come to the right place! This iced tea lemon vodka cocktail uses two ingredients and you’ll never get tired of making it.
There’s a liquor store near our house called Cherry’s. The couple who run it are incredibly nice, and also very knowledgeable about their wares. (You’d think that would be a given, right? I keep running into liquor store owners who don’t drink!) The last time I was in there, they recommended a vodka called Deep Eddy’s.
Guys. This stuff is amazing. It’s distilled in Austin, TX and the flavored ones are made with real fruit. They’re currently a competitor of Smirnoff and they’re priced that way. (In fact, Smirnoff has started their own line of flavored using real fruit because of Deep Eddy. 😛 )
Right now, it comes in lemon, peach, cranberry, grapefruit, distilled, and sweet tea. (Correction: They made orange vodka now and I AM SO PSYCHED GUYS. 😀 )
You’d think I was using the sweet tea, right? Sorry. 😛 That and the distilled are the only ones I haven’t tried. They come in 3 oz samplers, so I grabbed a bunch to try. They were ALL amazing. I didn’t think I’d like the cranberry and grapefruit, but I did.)
Iced Tea Lemon Vodka Cocktail Recipe
I get a lot of use out of the lemon, though. Because, as followers of my Facebook page know, I am a huge fan of lemon. I love the smell and taste of citrus. I love the happy, yellow color. And it pairs well with a lot of things!
So I paired it with some sweet iced tea. And, oh man. If you like lemon and you like tea, you’ll love this. I have a friend who doesn’t like lemon in her tea but LOVES this drink.
And it could NOT be simpler to make.
Make it a big batch
To make this a big batch, you want an 6:1 ratio. For every 6 ounces of ice tea, add one ounce of vodka.
You can use your favorite sweet iced tea recipe. Or use your favorite sweet iced tea brand! I made mine according to the direction on the back of the Lipton box.
Because I haven’t gushed enough already.
The Deep Eddy’s definitely adds something nice to this drink. You can taste that the lemon is fresh. So far, I can’t decide which flavor is my favorite. Zach’s is the peach. The peach was also the one that first impressed me. Because the moment I tasted it, I knew it was a real peach and not peach flavoring.
You can’t go wrong with that.
What would you pair the Deep Eddy’s vodka with (any flavor!)? Let me know in the comments! I could always use more ideas.
