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).
