35ml Peach Iced Tea
150ml Diet Lemonade
Mint Sprig & Lemon Slice Garnish
Mint Spig Garnish
Pour your 50ml of Twenty into a Collins glass filled with cubed ice.
Add the 35ml of peach iced tea and top up with diet lemonade.
Give your mint sprig a gentle slap across your palm and push it into your glass leaving the leaves atop.
Now place your lemon slice, with about half of it pointing out of the drink tightly against the mint. Cheers.
Jigger or measure

This drink is all about balance. Peach iced tea brings the sweet summery flavours of peach with the complex and drying tannins of tea. The diet lemonade provides a touch of acidity to cut through the tannins without washing out the peach. The lemon teams up deliciously Twenty’s citrus botanicals.
When buying fizzy mixers, we suggest buying them in the smallest container possible e.g. 150ml cans or 200ml bottles. Once the mixer is open the carbonation immediately starts to subside. Fresh mixer gives you the liveliest bubbles!
CREATE YOUR HOME BAR
WITH A FEW SIMPLE TOOLS YOU”LL BE THE HOST OF THE TOWN
If you love your gadgets then you can go to town, but you absolutely do not have to. You can make great cocktails with not much more than a glass and a chopstick if you choose but a few key tools for your kitchen will help you along the way. Here are the things we have at home for our cocktail adventures:
The bigger the surface area to volume ratio the less your ice will water down the flavour of your drink. Think bigger is better. There are lots of ice trays and moulds out there that give you all kinds of shapes and sizes. Any old ice will do though to keep it cool!
This could be an heirloom from your great grandmother or any old mixing jug in the kitchen. Something to stir things up in.
Know what you are drinking. A 25ml unit of Twenty is half a unit of alcohol. Measuring is great, it puts you in control and it means you can make consistent, great tasting drinks.
One for every type of citrus fruit or a fork and a strong fist. Get out all that lovely juice and mix up some magic.
You will want to strain out the chunky bits that can get stuck in your teeth. There are lots of great strainers to choose from, but a sieve in your kitchen will do just fine.
You can make this with sugar and water and a hob, or you can pick some up at the shops. Either way, we recommend you have some to hand, it is key to a whole load of great drinks.
Add that bit of flourish and the zing of some citrus zest. Your potato peeler or a good sharp knife will work a treat.
We love bitters. There are so many out there to choose from or you can get really creative and make your own. Go for it and experiment to find the ones that you love to mix with Twenty.
