About this Cocktail

Had at the Husk Bar in Charleston, SC. Researched the recipe. This is as it is listed in Serious Eats in 2012.

  • 4 cups Raw Sugar
  • 3 cups Fresh Lemon Juice (about 24 lemons)
  • 4 quarts Black Tea
  • 4 quarts California Brandy
  • 1 quart Bermuda or Barbados Rum
  • 1/2 pint Peach Brandy
  • Soda Water
  • Peel of 6 Lemons, cut into slivers

Combine sugar, lemon juice, tea, brandy, rum, peach brandy, and lemon peels in a large bowl. Stir until sugar is dissolved and chill in refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

Add ice (preferably in one large block) and top with soda water before serving. Alternatively, top each glass with 1 ounce of soda water before serving.
