I mean, Sunday is National Iced Tea Day so it’s only appropriate that the Friday 5 O’Cocktail should be a LON-GISLAND Iced Tea to get ready, right?! It’s funny though, I always thought this drink was just a hard iced tea — but actually the name of the drink comes from the fact that it just looks like iced tea!
You can order this drink “extra long” for even more alcohol!
Also, you can substitute the sweet and sour mix for a citrus juice such as orange or even lemon or lime. This is how the drink is often prepared outside of the US. So invite some friends over and have a fun afternoon!
Long Island Iced Tea
1 oz vodka
1 oz gin

1 oz triple sec liqueur

In a cocktail mixer full of ice, add vodka, gin, rum, triple sec, tequila, and sweet and sour mix. Shake vigorously. Strain into a highball glass with fresh ice and add the Coca-Cola. Garnish with a wedge of lemon.
Friends — I’m told these go down really easy. Get a designated driverrrrr!!!!
