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
Ingredients:1 part vodka1 part tequila1 part rum1 part gin1 part triple sec1 1/2 parts sweet and sour mix1 splash Coca-Cola®
DirectionsMix 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
Ingredients:1/2 oz vodka1/2 oz white tequila1/2 oz light rum1/2 oz raspberry liqueur1/2 oz gin2 oz cola2 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
Ingredients:1 1/2 oz Absolut® Citron vodka1 1/2 oz Bacardi® Limon rum1 1/4 oz Jose Cuervo® Citrico Tequila1 oz Tanqueray® gin1/2 oz Cointreau® orange liqueur1/4 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
Ingredients:1 1/4 oz rum1 1/4 oz vodka1 1/4 oz gin1 1/4 oz tequila1 1/4 oz peach schnapps1 1/4 oz sweet and sour mix1 splash Coca-Cola®
DirectionsCombine 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.
