Happy Friday! Here’s another summer cocktail that needs to be on your to-do list today!
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.
I’m in Aspen, CO now for the annual Food & Wine Classic. I’m certain there will be so many wonderful tasty creations & I’ll be sure to share them with you. Please keep an eye on my Instagram feed for regular updates.
Enjoy your weekend!
