Long Island Iced Tea is a mixed drink that is made by combining a variety of spirits, including vodka, gin, tequila, and rum, with a splash of triple sec, a sweet orange-flavored liqueur. The drink is typically served over ice and garnished with a lemon wedge.
To make the drink, combine all of the ingredients except for the cola in a shaker with ice. Shake well to mix and chill the ingredients. Strain the mixture into a highball glass filled with ice. Add a splash of cola to the glass and garnish with a lemon wedge.
You can adjust the proportions of the ingredients to suit your taste, or omit any of the spirits that you don’t like. Some variations of Long Island Iced Tea use sweet and sour mix in place of the simple syrup and lemon juice, or use a different type of cola, such as cherry cola or vanilla cola. Enjoy!
