Elf Tea

The Elf Tea cocktail is essentially a lovely lemon iced tea flavored with a healthy dose of peppermint liqueur. Needless to say, it’s tasty and very drinkable. But you don’t need to save it for summertime.

Elf Tea drink with ice and red straw

My suggestion: double all the ingredients to make a nice long drink that’s still not even a double (just two ounces of liqueur), kick back, relax and really enjoy yourself. Of course, if you want to raise the amount of peppermint liqueur or switch to peppermint schnapps, I won’t tell anybody.


  • 1 ounce peppermint liqueur
  • 3 ounces iced tea
  • 1 ounce fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon sugar

Fill a highball glass with ice cubes. Pour in the peppermint liqueur and the iced tea, and stir well. Add sugar to taste, and stir again. Squeeze half a lemon into the drink and serve with a straw for – you guessed it – more stirring.
