Long Island Ice Tea

By • April 18, 2010 • 4 Comments



Author Notes: Long ago I met my husband while I was out with my friends floating down the Clackamas River on a hot Sunday afternoon. We pulled ashore for lunch and then as we were getting in our boats to continue our float trip, he jumped into my boat. So...later that evening we went to dinner and this was the popular drink of the time. I can hardly imagine drinking such a kitchen sink kind of drink, so I am always surprised at how refreshing it tastes...and how quickly it puts you under an alcoholic spell. dymnyno

  • 1 oz light rum
  • 1 oz tequila
  • 1 oz cointreau
  • squeeze of fresh lemon juice
  • big splash of sweet and sour mix or Tom Collins (2 oz)
  • splash of coke for color (this will make it look like ice tea)

  • ice
  1. Mix all the ingredients and pour into two tall glasses of ice. Garnish with slice of lemon and a sprig of mint . This drink contains a LOT of alcohol. Drink responsibly! Enjoy!

I have always liked these and you are so right- how is it that you barely taste the alcohol in these when there is so much!

Oy, this will kick you in the pants really fast! It's a drink of my youth but I may have to re-visit it (sparingly!) Thanks!
