Long Island Ice Tea

Long Island Ice Tea

Quick Facts

Cocktail History

The REAL Long Island Iced Tea can seem like a complicated cocktail given all its ingredients. For one, it adds a touch of four different spirits (vodka, rum, gin & tequila) in one glass – sounds rough but dangerously smooth. The drink has a much higher alcohol concentration (approximately 22%) than most highball drinks due to the relatively small amount of mixer. I would save this for the weekends! Just for fun, garnish this memorable beverage with lemon slices and you’ll be all set to enjoy Long Island Ice Tea!


  • 1/2 oz Tequila
  • 1/2 oz Rum
  • 1/2 oz Vodka
  • 1/2 oz Gin
  • 1/2 oz Triple Sec
  • 1 oz Sweet and Sour
  • 1 oz Cola
  • 1/2 oz Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice
  • Garnish: Lemon Slice

Cocktail Preparation

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Pour the vodka, gin, rum, tequila, Triple Sec, and lemon juice into the shaker. Cover and shake vigorously to combine and chill. Pour the mixture, ice and all, into 2 glasses or beer mugs and top off with the cola. Garnish with lemon wedges.
