Thirsty Thursday: Long Island Iced Tea
The Long Island was invented relatively recently, yet has gained in popularity. Conceived in the 1970's in Long Island, New York, as a refreshing summer drink that would fuck you up beyond recognition.
Of course, depending on your region, there are variations of the drink.
Down here, you can order a Long Beach Iced Tea wherein Cranberry Juice is substituted for soda. It gives it a more unique taste, and just as much alcohol.The perfect drink for when you don't know what you want, but you know you want to be drunk.
1/2 Ounce Vodka (Belvedere works best)
1/2 Ounce light Rum (Bacardi Silver)
1/2 Ounce Tequila (1800 mixes perfectly)
1/2 Ounce Triple Sec (Cointreau)
1/2 Ounce Gin (Seagram's is preferable for this)
1 Ounce Sour mix
Splash of Cola
Pour all ingredients into a tall glass of ice. Stir and enjoy!
