Long Island Iced Tea Cocktail – How To Mix

Long Island Iced Tea is a great Cocktail especially if you need a good boost of alcohol. The Cocktail is a mix of following spirits – Vodka, White Rum, Gin, Tequila and Triple Sec.

Some people often keep Tequila as an optional spirit but since we like it we prefer to keep it as part of the Long Island Iced Tea Recipe.

We used Orange Cointreau instead of standard Triple Sec.

It adds that Orange flavour to the Lemon and Coke flavour of the Cocktail and it is so good.

Now to make the Cocktail, you need a shaker so as to mix the spirits properly.

If you do not have a Cocktail shaker you can use a bottle or a similar container so you can shake it properly and don’t spill it.

Ok, coming back to making the Long Island Iced Tea Cocktail. First, if you are not using ready made lemon juice then get some freshly squeezed lemon juice.

Now, fill the Cocktail shaker with lots of ice and add Absolut Vodka, Bacardi Carta Blanca, Sierra Tequila, Bombay Sapphire Gin and Cointreau and lemon Juice to it.

Now close the shaker and shake it for 30 seconds or so as to mix the spirits properly.

Take a Cocktail highball glass and fill it with lots of ice.

You can use standard ice pieces used for Cocktails.

Now add a splash of cola to it.

You can use any brand of Cola such as Coca Cola, Pepsi or your favourite local brand.

Now, use the Cocktail mixing spoon to make way through the ice and gently pour spirits from the Cocktail mixer using a strainer on it.

This is mainly required to give the cocktail its texture as the spirits will now float on top and slowly mix with the Coke at the bottom of the glass.

Your Long Island Iced Tea Cocktail is now ready, but before serving put a straw to drink and garnish the cocktail with a wedge of Lemon.

Enough of the efforts, it is time to enjoy your very own – Long Island Iced Tea.
