Long Island Peach Tea

Peach Iced Tea

Delicious (Picture:

Add a unique hit to your regular Long Island iced tea with this peachy recipe.

As expected, this is an extra boozy, yet delicious drink.

This recipe replaces the typical tea flavours with a ‘kawaii’ peachy hue, punchy and piquant.

You will need:

  • 100ml Peach Sour 
  • 25ml white rum
  • 25ml gin
  • 15ml Cointreau
  • 25ml vodka
  • Sour peaches 
  • Ice
  • Highball glass


Start off with some ice in a tall glass.

Add together 25ml of white rum, 25ml of your favourite gin, and top that off with 25ml of vodka.

To give some depth, add 15ml of Cointreau – to add a slight orange flavour.

Then, take Chu Lo Peach Sour and top it off all the way to the top and it will turn a nice peachy colour as it goes through.

Garnish with sour peach sweets of your choice.

Chu Lo Whisky Sour

Classic… with a twist (Credits: Ralf Roletschek)

This drink combines sweet and sour with the strong, classic whisky flavour.

To enhance your whisky sour even further, add a splash of Chu Lo Lemon Sour for a refreshing kick in your drink. 

You will need:

  • 100ml Lemon Sour
  • 25ml lemon juice
  • 35ml Bourbon
  • 1 egg white
  • Ice
  • Cocktail shaker
  • A glass


Start off with a little bit of ice in a shaker.

Then, add 25ml of lemon juice to the shaker.

Grab your favourite Bourbon and put 35ml of it into your mix.

Separate an egg and throw the egg white into the shaker.

Put the lid on and shake it up! Once you’re done, put the shaker to one side. 

Get a clean glass and add about 100ml of Chu Lo Lemon Sour and add the mix from the shaker right on top.

Add a garnish of your choice.

Great Wave Chu Lo Cocktail

You can’t miss this one (Picture: Chu Lo)

As the no and low drink options take over the market, so do the low-alcohol cocktails that give all the style and sophistication of a classic cocktail without the morning headache.

Combine sour, sweet and creamy in this beautiful drink.

You will need:

  • 100ml Apple Sour 
  • Dash of double cream
  • 15ml Blue curaçao
  • Martini Glass


  • Start by adding a dash of cream to the martini glass and move it around to create wave-like structures.
  • Add 15ml of Blue Curaçao to the glass; this will really play off against the white colour of the cream and give a sea vibe.
  • Add Apple Sour; this will give a super foamy top, just like waves.
  • Add a garnish of your choice.
