This Long Island Iced Tea Mocktail recipe is not only non-alcoholic, it’s also really REALLY low in sugar and is only 3 ingredients really! It’s great for those that are driving or just don’t fancy having a drink, and goes really well with a BBQ or afternoon al fresco lunch.
Long Island Iced Tea Mocktail
The amount you need to make will obviously depend upon the size of your glass. Here, I have used a 500ml glass but you can use larger, or you could make a whole bucket load of the stuff to serve as a non-alcoholic punch!
- 300ml boiling water
- 200ml cold water
- ice cubes
- wedge lemon
- 3 sprigs fresh mint
Boil the kettle and pour 300ml boiling water into a heat-proof container. Add the teabag for 2 minutes and stir. Squeeze out once finished.
Add the 200ml cold water to the boiling water. Allow time for the tea to reach room temperature. This usually takes 15 minutes or so.
In a pestle and mortar, crush your mint leaves lightly to release the scent and flavour. Place your ice cubes, mint and lemon in your serving glass or punch bowl.
Once the tea is at room temperature, pour over the ice, mint and lemon.
And that’s it, now for the full part, to enjoy your Long Island Iced Tea Mocktail ! Serve with a straw and enjoy with a finger-licking BBQ or civilised al fresco lunch!
You can also try this with green tea, herbal tea, or why not make this tea and turn it into a nice iced-tea mocktail?
