Long Island Iced Tea

The Long Island Iced Tea cocktail is a classic and beloved drink that has been popular for decades. Despite its name, this cocktail doesn’t actually contain any tea, but rather a combination of five different spirits: vodka, gin, rum, tequila, and triple sec, mixed with lemon juice, cola, and simple syrup.

To make this cocktail, combine vodka, gin, rum, tequila, triple sec, lemon juice, and simple syrup in a shaker with ice. Shake well and strain into a glass filled with ice. Top with cola and garnish with a lemon wedge for added visual appeal.

The Long Island Iced Tea cocktail is a strong and refreshing drink that is perfect for sipping on a hot summer day or for enjoying at a party. The combination of five different spirits creates a complex flavor profile that is perfectly balanced by the sweetness of the simple syrup and the tartness of the lemon juice. The cola adds a touch of effervescence and enhances the overall flavor of the cocktail.

Whether you’re a fan of classic cocktails or just looking for a strong and flavorful drink, the Long Island Iced Tea cocktail is sure to satisfy. Its iconic status and reputation as a party favorite make it a standout drink that is perfect for any occasion.
