"Try it with Blackberry Brandy sometime. It's pretty awesome, too!"

"I make this with rum instead of brandy and use 2 cans of citrus punch instead of the lemonade and orange juice. It is delicious. I keep some in the freezer all summer. Just add 7up or Spite and enjoy!"

"I can't wait for summer to make this- have used peach/ginger tea and it is also yummy- I do leave my tea steep for a while/had better flavor"

"Your recipe doesn't include the sugar. You need to divide the water - steep tea in 2 cups boiling water. The rest is mixed with 2 c. sugar until boiling and dissolved; then allowed to cool. Mix everything together and freeze. You can add more brandy - I use 3 cups; this will keep it a bit slushier & the edges won't get so hard like another reviewer said. Variations should include a sweet & a sour - hence the lemon & orange combo."

"Love this! I have had a bottle of brandy sitting in the cabinet for a while now and was so excited to find this recipe. It was very good, perfect for summer. Sounds gross, but I also added a splash of citrus vodka with the soda and it was good also."
