A brief history of the Long Island Iced Tea Cocktail...
Since the 1970's, the Long Island Iced Tea has been one of the most popular cocktails around the world, on account of its high alcohol concentration and cola-infused sweet taste. A concoction of many spirits, this cocktail is a perfect storm of tastes and character.
With a reputation for being the strongest drink on the cocktail menu, the Long Island Iced Tea is a 'go-to' for anyone wanting a cocktail with a punch - however somehow manages to be bright, refreshing, and easy to drink.
There are many competing stories on how the Long Island Iced Tea got its name, starting with a claim that this was invented in the Oak Beach Inn on Long Island, New York. However, other stories claim that the drink was created in Long Island, Tennessee - some 700 miles away!
Wherever the origins of this drink, the 'Iced Tea' element is most certainly due to the Amber hue created with the addition of cola.
With four different spirits all thrown into this boozy cocktail, the Long Island may lack sophistication, but it oozes in potency. Typically the Long Island Iced Tea uses Vodka, Rum, Tequila and Triple Sec as the core ingredients, but there are countless varieties of this versatile drink, with practically any spirit able to find a home in a pitcher of this cocktail. Just check out the Blue Island Iced Tea for a refreshing alternative that switches the cola for crisp lemonade!
