Long Island Iced Tea


Gary Regan, The Joy of Mixology: “This is not a well-thought drink, and the notion of mixing all these spirits together is horrifying. Nevertheless, it’s undeniable that the Long Island Iced Tea works. It’s pleasant, refreshing, and somewhat lethal.”


1 oz Vodka

1 oz Gin (or Blanco tequila)

1 oz Light rum

1 oz Triple Sec or Grand Marnier

4 oz Laffite’s Gold Sweet & Sour Mix

Diet Cola (to keep it sugar free!)


Shake everything but the cola with ice and strain into a tall glass filled with ice. Top with just enough cola to make it look like tea, and garnish with a lemon wedge.
