LIVINGSTON, NJ — McAlister’s Deli, famous for its freshly brewed sweet tea, is hosting a Free Tea Day at its Livingston location on Eisenhower Parkway, which held its official grand opening in June. Free T-shirts will be handed out to the first 25 customers who attend Free Tea Day on July 21.

Freshly brewed multiple times daily, McAlister’s sweet tea is said to be made with a labor of love—seeped with premium black tea leaves and served over ice with a fresh lemon wedge. As a franchise, McAlister’s Deli offers free refills daily.

McAlister’s of Livingston owner Ash Ram said the deli is excited to join in on the restaurant’s biggest day of the year for the first time and hopes to see many faces from Livingston and surrounding areas cooling off in the store on July 21.

In addition to Free Tea Day, McAlister’s of Livingston is also offering its specialty Cuban sandwich, limeade, McAlister’s special version of lemonade; and key lime pie for a limited time this summer.

Exploring local favorites from New York to New Orleans to California to Savannah, McAlister’s of Livingston prides itself on being the home of handcrafted sandwiches, always-fresh salads and giant, stuffed “spuds.” The fast, casual restaurant chain is also known for its soups, salads, desserts and McAlister’s Famous Sweet Tea.

“The Cuban is a regional favorite—we also do the New Yorker, which is ¾ of a pound of pastrami and corned beef, and a lot of different regional things,” said Ram.

“We wanted to make it easy to experience the best of what’s out there – in here,” the chain states.
