The Official Unofficial Serbian Ice Tea Recipe.....

Ah, I couldn't resist the need to make an Ode to my good old friend the Serbian Ice Tea and his creator the one and only Marko Jovanovic.
If you haven't had the chance to try this baby out, print out the following cocktail recipe, and stumble on over to your local bar (which i'm assuming is decent enough to have the ingredients needed) ASAP, because this is a legend.

The Details:
- concocted for the first time sometime in mid to end 1997 at the Chesterfield Café (now The House of Live) by Doktor Marko - As I remember it was a Friday or Saturday night, or maybe a Wednesday... or, well..
- I got to knowing the recipe well because i later worked with Marko in 1999 at The Long Hop.

Here it is:

In a Pint Glass filled with ice:

1centiliter (cl.) : Malibu
1cl. : Southern Comfort
1cl. : Peach schnapps
1cl. : Kahlua
1cl. Triple Sec or Cointreau
4 wedges of lime squeezed.
dash of Grenadine.

- fill to about 3/4 of the glass with Cranberry Juice.
- shake furiously.
-top the concoction with some 7up/sprite and enjoy.

Now i have a second recipe... the one i make, which is killer - this is meant for monsters who can take the alcohol, cuz there is a lot of it.
It is the same as above, except you add: 2cl. of dark rum, 2cl. of vodka, and another cl. of Triple sec, which brings the alcohol content to 20cl. of alcohol....

More recipes to come - if you have any questions, post your comments and i'll get back to ya. CHEERS!

Absolutely my favorite drink.... funny to hear the name of The Long Hop. I used to go there while I lived in Paris.
The irish pub in Bastille also makes a mean serbian ice tea.
