Cooking with Banshee: Sweet Tequila Tea

This recipe was labeled as a summertime drink.  But down here in the South, we drink sweet tea all year round.  And, in the Banshee Lair, we like it with a little kick.  I got this recipe from my friend Susan Carman, an expert on alcohol and all things southern.  I've tweaked it just a bit.  This recipe is not too strong, so it's perfect for parties.


Ingredients:
12 cups of water (divided)
6 tea bags
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup thawed frozen orange juice concentrate
1/2 cup thawed frozen lemonade concentrate
2 cups gold tequila

Directions:
Bring 4 cups of water to a boil.  Remove from heat.  Add tea bags.  Cover and allow the tea to steep for  5 minutes.  Discard tea bags.  Add sugar and stir until dissolved.  Pour the strong, sugary tea into a large pitcher.  Add the orange juice, lemonade, tequila and 8 cups of remaining water.  Mix together well.  Refrigerate until chilled.  Serve over ice.
