For an afternoon gathering or evening barbecue, this lighter version of a Long Island Iced Tea, with a burst of cherry flavour, is the perfect pairing.

1 To a pitcher, add ¼ cup gin, ½ cup vodka, ¼ cup rum, ¼ cup tequila, ¼ cup cherry liqueur, 1 cup sour mix, 2 cups cherry juice. Stir to mix, and store in refrigerator, covered if desired.

2 Just prior to serving, add 1½ cups club soda (or lemon-lime soda for a sweeter taste). Stir gently and pour into tall glasses filled with ice. Garnish each with a cherry.
