Do you know that first ever Hard Rock café was opened in London in 1971 by two Americans – Issac Tigret and Peter Morton for their sheer love for burger. Sounds inspiring, isn’t it?. People across globe are very passionate about their food and that is how interesting café – like Hard Rock takes shape! Pizza Express too has a similar storyJ.
Another interesting fact, Hard Rock café’s logo was designed by celebrity artist Alan Aldridge, best known for his work with the Beatles. Another interesting fact about Hard Rock is that Paul McCartney and Wings had their first impromptu gig, before they kicked off their UK tour. Today HRC has more than 15000 live performances every year. Isn’t the number huge?!
Why is it that this strange combination of spirits and soda actually tastes very similar to iced tea? We could tell you that it’s because the juniper in the gin reacts with the molasses in the rum, creating a flavor that combines with the agave in the tequila that implodes with the neutral characteristics of the vodka, resulting in a chemical compound that, when looked at under a microscope, resembles the molecules found in tea leaves grown in Sri Lanka (on the south slopes, of course), but that would serve no purpose at all. The fact is, for one strange reason or another, this weird mixture of ingredients tastes like iced tea. And in that regard, it’s a dangerous mix.
I was excited to try different version of LIIT at HRC and to know the story behind each LIIT. HRC is serving five versions of LIIT – Long Caribbean Iced Tea, Channel Island Iced Tea, Raspberry Iced Tea, Boston Iced Tea and Texas Iced Tea. All LIIT are great and each of the flavors are distinct. Though I liked all and tasted all of them, my favorites would be Texas and Caribbean because as they were little high on alcohol J.
