  • Today I tackle the Long Island Iced Tea, or maybe it tackles me?

    **********************************

    This week I tackle the legendary Long Island Iced Tea! Created in the 70's by bartender Bob "Rosebud" Butt for a cocktail contest hosted by Oak Beach Inn. The version I'm presenting here is slightly rebalanced by Jeffrey Morgenthaler but goes down just as easy as the original. And that's kinda of the point with this drink, it's a basically unoffensive way to put a lot of high proof spirits passed your lips.

    Long Island Iced Tea

    .75 oz. -or- 22 ml. Lemon JUice
    .5 oz. -or- 15 ml. gin
    .5 oz. -or- 15 ml. rum
    .5 oz. -or- 15 ml. tequila
    .5 oz. -or- 15 ml. vodka
    .5 oz. -or- 15 ml. Dry Curaçao / triple sec
    .25 oz. -or- 8 ml. simple syrup
    shake & pour
    .75 oz. -or- 22 ml. Coca Cola
    Garnish with lemon twist
