A Long Island Iced Tea, mixed and ready to drink.

Drink Ingredients:

  • 1/2 simple syrup
  • 3/4 fresh lemon juice
  • 1/3 triple sec
  • 1/3 house vodka
  • 1/3 house white rum
  • 1/3 house white tequila
  • 1/3 house gin
  • 2 cola
  • lemon or lime cartwheel (garnish)

Mixing Method: Build

  1. Build in a chilled Collins, or Poco Grande glass.
  2. Scoop the glass 3/4 full with ice.
  3. Add all the ingredients except cola and garnish.
  4. Stir slightly and top the glass with cola.
  5. Garnish with a citrus cartwheel and straw.

Mixology Notes:

Every bartender seems to have their own twists and variations for this drink. They add everything from absinthe to maple syrup. This is a stock version with equal parts of the four base spirits and triple sec. It’s ok to substitute diet cola if your guest prefers a ‘skinny’ version.
