Want A Great Long Island Ice Tea Recipe? Look No Further!


I realize that a long island ice tea recipe doesn't actually contain any actual tea, but I like them because they actually taste like iced tea! I've worked at a restaurant for about 6 years now and serve these drinks very often.

In the future I'll be experimenting with these and trying to actually make them with real tea, but until then you can enjoy some of these fantastic long island ice tea recipes.

As a little disclaimer, I'd just like to mention that these are very strong drinks and you need to drink responsibly. For a tea drinker who probably doesn't drink very much alcohol - one will probably suffice.

An Original Long Island Ice Tea Recipe


  • 1 part vodka
  • 1 part tequila
  • 1 part rum
  • 1 part gin
  • 1 part triple sec
  • 1 1/2 parts sweet and sour mix
  • 1 splash Coca-Cola®
  • Directions

  • Mix ingredients together over ice in a collins glass.
  • Pour into a shaker and give it a nice big shake or two.
  • Pour back into the collins glass. There should be a nice little foam at the top.
  • Garnish with lemon.
  • You can also replace the sweet and sour mix with a little bit of pineapple juice, and you don't "need" to put any Coke into it - but many people choose to do so. That's what gives it the iced tea look.

    Raspberry Long Island Ice Tea Recipe


  • 1/2 oz vodka
  • 1/2 oz white tequila
  • 1/2 oz light rum
  • 1/2 oz raspberry liqueur
  • 1/2 oz gin
  • 2 oz cola
  • 2 oz sweet and sour mix
  • Directions:

  • Pour all ingredients except raspberry liqueur in a shaker with a little ice.
  • Proceed to shake ingredients.
  • Pour into a highball glass.
  • Very slowly pour the raspberry liqueur on top and add a slice of lemon wedge.

  • This recipe is for those who like to buy "premium" liquor and have a little more money to spend.

    High Rollers Long Island Ice Tea Recipe


  • 1 1/2 oz Absolut® Citron vodka
  • 1 1/2 oz Bacardi® Limon rum
  • 1 1/4 oz Jose Cuervo® Citrico Tequila
  • 1 oz Tanqueray® gin
  • 1/2 oz Cointreau® orange liqueur
  • 1/4 oz Coca-Cola®
  • Directions:

  • Mix all ingredients except Coke in a collins glass over ice.
  • Pour the Coke over the mixture slowly so get you an iced tea look.
  • Garnish with a lemon or lime wedge.
  • You can also use the new lime-flavored Coke instead of regular coke for a little more flavor. Also, you can use just 1oz. of Cuervo® and replace it with lemon juice to make it a little more tart and save a few calories.

    Peach Long Island Ice Tea Recipe


  • 1 1/4 oz rum
  • 1 1/4 oz vodka
  • 1 1/4 oz gin
  • 1 1/4 oz tequila
  • 1 1/4 oz peach schnapps
  • 1 1/4 oz sweet and sour mix
  • 1 splash Coca-Cola®
  • Directions

  • Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker that's filled with ice.
  • Shake it a few times and pour into a collins glass with ice.
  • Add a splash of Coke.
  • Garnish with a peach slice.

  • You can try experimenting with these drinks using pretty much any type of fruit flavored liquor or fruit juice. For example if you love apple drinks, try using an apple liquor. I've never had that myself because I'm not a big alcohol drinker (obviously) but it sounds pretty good.

    Also, please note that these recipes are for one serving. If you're making more than one drink, adjust the recipes accordingly.
