Recipe by Leslie du Mont
"This is the best summer cocktail! Men love it. Women adore it. I got it from a friend, and she always used Jim Beam®, but you can also use vodka or gin. Every time I serve these people beg me for the recipe and there isn't a drop left! If you like it less sweet, I suggest using ginger ale and scaling back on the sugar by 1/4 cup. I think this wouldn't affect the outcome too much. Seriously, you can use gin, bourbon, or vodka, but the bourbon is particularly refreshing in this! Ginger ale can be replaced with Sprite® or 7-Up®."

1 (6 ounce) can
frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
1 (6 ounce) can
frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
1 (2 liter) bottle
ginger ale, or as needed
I started with one cup of sugar -- you can always add more after you've seeped the teabags, and then just heat it up again to melt. All according to taste, of course. Didn't garnish because I didn't have any mint, but this is a great sipping drink for a hot summer's afternoon! I put it in a big jar and stuck it in the freezer. Good stuff.
