Spiked Iced Tea

As someone who knows spend almost half of the year in New Orleans but grew up in Quebec, it is surprising how quickly I ditched some classic quebecois booze for some southern charming cocktails. I have always been a fan of classic unsweet tea; my mom made it every summer when we were out on The Cape. Who knew years later, I would be brewing my own iced tea in New Orleans as the base for some great cocktails. I have tried all sort of variations on a spiked ice tea over the years (most of them end up being too sweet) and this might be my new favourite. Wodka Zoladkowa Gorzka is an herbal vodka (with hints of pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg) that adds a slightly bitter yet slightly sweet taste.


  • 1oz Wodka Zoladkowa Gorzka
  • 8oz Fresh Brewed Unsweet Tea (chilled) – I recommend Luzianne
  • Slice of lemon
  • Lots of ice


  1. Fill a highball glass with ice.
  2. Add in the Wodka.
  3. Top up with tea.
  4. Squeeze in the lemon slice.
  5. Garnish with fresh lemon.
  6. Enjoy.
  7. Repeat.
