FRIDAY’S (VIDEO) RECIPE: LONG ISLAND ICED TEA

To help you get into weekend mode, here’s a video recipe for how to make Long Island Iced Tea that was put together by Girls Mixing Drinks, which I found on Denver Food Guy‘s site.

Long Island Iced Tea always cracks me up because I grew up on Long Island  – and didn’t know anybody who drank them growing up!  (We were more into kamikazes back then.)

Since then, I’ve run across this drink in Dublin, Belize and other places far from LI, and occasionally order one.  When I order one and tell people I actually grew up on Long Island, it’s a good conversation starter in a foreign land.

The recipe is very simple – all you need are the white liquors (rum, gin, tequila, vodka and triple sec), citrus juice or sour mix and coke (-a cola).

Cheers!

  1. The Long Island Iced Tea is a classic, and can never be forgotten. I don’t believe it’s more than 40 years old, as most of our popular drinks today were created in the 70s and 80s. For just getting straight drunk, this drink is one that sets the standard.
