How to make a Long Island Ice Tea

Recipe for Long Island Ice Tea
Fewer drinks will allow you to combine as much alcohol together and keep the taste palatable then the Long Island Ice Tea. First served in the 70’s, The Long Island gets its name from the largest island in the continental United States, Long Island, in New York. Robert (Rosebud) Butt, a bartender at the Oak Beach Inn, is credited with its birth.

With over 15 years of experience behind a bar, I will warn you that I have never had someone order this drink without me immediately asking to see their ID. If you want everyone to know this is your first day at the rodeo, order a Long Island Ice Tea.

What is in a Long Island Ice Tea

  • 1/2 oz Vodka
  • 1/2 oz Gin
  • 1/2 oz Rum
  • 1/2 oz Tequilla
  • 1/2 oz Triple Sec
  • 2 oz Sweet and Sour Mix
  • 1 Splash of Coke or Pepsi

Directions to make an Long Island Ice Tea

  1. Pour the ingredients into a large glass or shaker tin
  2. Shake lightly and server
  3. Garnish with a lemon

Optional Additions to Long Island Ice Tea

  • Depending on the part of the country you are in, the tequila is remove from the recipie
  • Another variation is to replace tequila with brandy
  • If you want to make these at home but do not want to buy all the ingredients you can purchase a pre-mix at your local grocery store, then you only need to purchase vodka to mix with it.

Advice of the day:
Bring at least one friend when you start mixing up Long Island’s because you’ll need a witness to the stupid things you’ll start to do after drinking just two of them.

Warning! – Alcohol should not be consumed by minors. All alcoholic beverages should be consumed in moderation

I “Hate” Dr Oz

This is a site for men, or more to the point, this is a site for men in relationships. Husbands, boyfriends and men that have to deal with the daily grind of life, and are then subject to the ensnaring power of Doctor Oz over our better half, the women in our lives.

Don’t get us wrong, we actually think Dr Oz is a great doctor, and we don’t hate him...specifically ☺
