Happy hour: When Traditional tea is not enough

By Iwana Bevvie

After a long day at the office, you may need more than a traditional Earl Grey tea. Did you know that Hilton Head has its own tea, called Hilton Head Tea that is similar to a Long Island iced tea but with a mule kick? Here are two ways to enjoy one, made-for-you or DIY.

Order a Hilton Head Tea at Frankie Bones

Let the friendly bartenders at Frankie Bones serve you up a hand-crafted glass on ice, so you just have to pull up a seat, sip and say ahhhh..


  • 1 1/2 ounces peach/mango liquor infusion (vodka, rum, triple sec, mango and peach)
  • 2 ounces sour mix
  • Splash of Coca-Cola
  • Lemon wedge

Directions Fill hurricane glass with ice. Pour peach/mango liquor infusion, sweet and sour, and shake in large Boston shaker. Pour back into hurricane glass and splash with Coke. Garnish with lemon wedge.

Make your own: Hilton Head Tea

Unleash your inner mixologist and prepare this crafty cocktail in the comfort of your own home. The ingredient list is long but the taste is worth the effort.


  • Ice, as needed
  • 4 fluid ounces beer (such as Miller High Life)
  • 3 fluid ounces orange juice
  • ½ fluid ounce vodka
  • ½ fluid ounce gin
  • ½ fluid ounce white rum
  • ½ fluid ounce silver tequila
  • ½ fluid ounce triple sec
  • 3 fluid ounces Coca-Cola

Mix all ingredients and enjoy. Garnish with a lemon or lime if desired.
