July 5, 2017
Fresh off the heels of National Iced Tea Month, McAlister’s Deli® today added a
new offering to its popular beverage menu just in time for the hottest month of the year. Combining two made-with
Pure Cane Sugar beverage favorites, Lemonade Tea is a blend of freshly brewed McAlister’s Famous Tea™ and
Lemonade, quenching the thirst of guests across the restaurant brand’s more than 400 locations. Served in a 32-
ounce glass over crystal clear ice, McAlister’s tea is a labor of love, steeped with Rainforest Alliance Certified™
premium tea leaves and served with its famous red straw. The addition of Pure Cane Sugar Lemonade provides
guests a refreshing, year-round beverage alternative without having to sacrifice their beloved tea.
“Our Lemonade Tea is the perfect pairing, allowing guests the opportunity to continue enjoying our famous tea with a
vibrant, new twist,” said Paul Macaluso, president of McAlister’s Deli. “This launch solidifies our commitment to
beverage innovation, while complementing a variety of our menu options, including our fresh, seasonal offerings.”
Along with Lemonade Tea, McAlister’s is introducing a seasonal, limited time sandwich offering adding more fresh
flavor to its menu. The BLT+A features Applewood smoked bacon, fresh assorted greens, thick sliced tomato and
avocado seasoned with salt and pepper, all topped with herb mayo and served on toasted country white bread. The
new sandwich adds to the wholesome, made-to-order menu options that boast fresh, high-quality ingredients and will
be available as a full sandwich or half when part of McAlister’s Choose 2 option.
