About The Long Island Iced Tea
The Long Island Iced Tea cocktail became popular back in the 1970s, and it’s remained a staple in any cocktail menu until today.
This delicious drink is not for the faint-hearted, as you can see by its booze-filled ingredients list.
It’s a knock-out drink that is dangerously tasty, so it’s wise not to underestimate this drink if you’re new to the Long Island Iced Tea game.
That said, a punchy drink does us all good once in a while, so don’t be afraid to give this recipe a go and enjoy the rewards.
If you’re not feeling up for the morning-after hangover, dial back the alcohol and use more cola as a top-up to calm it down a little.
Whatever tickles your fancy.
