Did you know I grew up on Long Island? I did. Thankfully I did not learn about Long Island Iced Tea cocktails until I attended Syracuse University…at which point I was of age to drink and was very curious about this libation….

What is a Long Island Ice Tea?

It’s a mixture of vodka, gin, white rum, silver tequila, triple sec, lemon juice & cola. Not your ordinary iced tea…and it certainly packs a wallop! A little goes a long way friends.

I’ve been totally digging this Summer Cocktails book that was sent to me. There are so many gorgeous cocktails & the photos are beautiful! All sorts of cocktails are featured with unique twists that make them irresistible. There’s a Long Island Iced Tea featured that prompted me to share here.
