Hi, I'm Claudia from Realfoodies.com/Tastybits and I'm here in Berkeley, California at Kitchen on Fire to teach you guys how to make a watermelon long island ice tea. Yes, watermelon long island ice tea. Okay guys so if you're not familiar with what goes into a long island ice tea, it's probably because the last time you had one you blacked out, so I'm going to refresh your memory today. A traditional long island ice tea contains a little bit of cola, a lot of hooch, basically there is vodka, gin, rum, tequila and triple sec but today I've used Grand Marnier because that's why it's a little bit yellow. So a traditional long island ice tea is usually served in a high ball glass but we're not doing that today because that's a train wreck. So we're going to do it in some smaller glasses like this so it feels a little less guilty. So the first thing I'm going to do is get my little bottle of hooch, nobody light a match and I'm going to put a little bit in, probably a third of the glass up, just depends on how happy you're feeling. I'm making two because I've got to give the camera man a little bit, you know. Now we're going to add a little bit of cola, you can also add some clear carbonated sweet beverage of your choice, just a tiny bit. So now we're going to put a little bit of fresh squeezed lemon juice, just a tiny tiny bit and our lovely fresh squeezed and strained watermelon juice. We're going to give it a little tiny stir. You can also make this in a drink maker in a, one of those metal things, but who has time. One for me, one for the camera man. Moment of truth.
