Fill a cocktail shaker with a handful of ice. Add the tea and the Lemon Simple Syrup, and shake what your mama gave you. Pour into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with the lemon strip.
Lemon Simple Syrup:
Combine the sugar and 1 cup water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, lower the heat, and simmer for about 10 minutes. Let cool, then stir in the lemon juice. Use immediately or store, covered, in the refrigerator.
