Long Island Iced Tea

This classic drink is among the top 5 most popular cocktails and is the basis for many other mixed drinks. It does not actually contain tea, but it does taste slightly like it. Because so many variations exist, I can't post the exact alcohol percentage. Play around with this recipe to perfect it for your own taste.

You will need (measurements in parts for easy personal adjustment):
1 part vodka
1 part (good!!) tequila
1 part rum
1 part gin
1 part triple sec
1½ part sweet and sour mix
Enough Coca Cola to fill the glass and give colour.
Collins glass (or large high-ball glass)

Pour all ingredients into a shaker and shake very briefly (once or twice). Pour back into the glass and make sure it is bubbling at the top.



  1. I am so in the mood for some iced tea, I'm gonna try this out.

  2. Nice. I wish it was still Saturday so I could get smashed off this.

  3. I'm making this the next time it's nice out.

  4. these are so good. you know if your making it right after you add the coke it wil have that offshade clear brown that looks just like tea and when you take a swig it will taste excatly like lemon ice tea

  5. greatest alcoholic beverage ever created. I love long island iced teas.
