1 part rum
1 part gin
1 part triple sec
1 1/2 parts sweet and sour mix

Mix ingredients together over ice in a glass. Pour into a shaker and give one brisk shake. Pour back into the glass and make sure there is a touch of fizz at the top. Garnish with lemon.


Long Island Iced Tea #2

1/2 oz. vodka
1/2 oz. gin
1/2 oz. rum
1/2 oz. tequila
1/2 oz. Triple Sec

Equal parts of soda and Coke until glass is filled.


Long Island Iced Tea #3 (Food Network)

1/2 ounce Triple Sec
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup cola, or to taste
2 lemon wedges

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. Serve.


Long Island Iced Tea #4

1 shot each of:

light rum
dark rum (2 shots light works)
lemon juice (freshly squeezed is best)

1/2 shot each of:

triple sec
light tequila (most recipes call for a whole shot, but tequila is the most apt to “stick out” in the mix, so going a bit easy on it can make the net taste more neutral)

add cola to taste
ice as appropriate
garnish with a lemon wedge


Long Island Iced Tea #5

1/2 ounce vodka
1/2 ounce gin
1/2 ounce tequila
1/2 ounce light rum
1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice
1/2 ounce triple sec
1 teaspoon superfine sugar
Cold cola
Wedge of lemon

Shake the vodka, gin, tequila, rum, lemon juice, triple sec, and sugar with ice; then strain into a chilled collins glass filled with ice. Add cola to fill, gently stir, and garnish with a lemon wedge.


Long Island Iced Tea #6

1 oz Tanqueray Gin
1 oz Skyy Vodka
1 oz Bacardi Superior Rum (clear stuff) (151 is you’re feeling FRISKY)
1 oz 99 Oranges

Shake or stir together 4 liquors and mix. Stir in cola. Add Ice. Garnish with a lime or lemon wedge for fun.
