Surprisingly Simple Sea Island Iced Tea: A cocktail classic reinvented
DH Vancouver StaffSep 05, 2014 9:30 am
Keep the flavours of summer alive with this toned-down take on a classic ’80s cocktail, named after Richmond’s Sea Island — home to the Vancouver International Airport. While the original version typically uses all varieties of spirits, super sweet syrups, soda, and the whole kitchen sink, this low-key interpretation embodies guilt-free fun.

0.5 oz honey water (1 part water, 1 part honey)

0.5 oz cranberry juice
