    The long island iced tea originated in the 20's using all ingredients including tequila.

    Try adding a shot of Rebecca Creek Texas Burbon Whiskey instead of cola.

    I use the above recipe with one notable difference. I use Agave Nectar instead of Gomme Syrup to add a little extra flavor. Have gotten rave reviews from friends and family. Enjoy.

    I work at a bar that takes a lot of pride in our Longie's. Heres how we make them...don't knock it till you try it. In a boston glass, place a slice of lime and lemon, 15mls lemon juice and 15 mls simple syrup. Add ice to the top, and then add 15mls each of, gin, vodka, triple sec, silver tequila and white rum. Clap a pinch of mint leaves and add to the glass. Stir until properly diluted. Top with ice and add a dash of coke for colour

    i agree thepepsikid - that's the one we've used and everyone loves it. we used lemonade when we ran out of sweet+sour mix and liked it better, so it became the new standard. 1 shot each lemodade, Vodka, White Rum, Gin, White Tequila, Triple Sec. really no need for the coke. a lot of people put in a full shot of coke and ruin it. a drop for color if any ive also heard squeezing the oil from a lemon rind in the bottom of the glass makes it go down smoother, but i've never had the patience

    is there a variation to what kind of liquor you use? is it the one you prefer... like when it says white tequila ...i use patron silver...

    We make ours up with Vodka,White Rum, Gin, White Tequila, Triple Sec, lemonade & splash of coke w/lemon wedge. I mix up all the booze in a half gallon that way all have to do is pour in glass add the lemonade & coke and it's done. We get lots of compliments on it. Think it just depends on bartender and there little twists

    I've been trying this a few times and I never got it right. I was told traditional Long Island contains the 5 clear liquors. I have tried 1 oz of each and I also tried 1/2 oz of each. I've tried coke, and I've also tried pepsi, because someone once told me pepsi is a better choice because it wasn't as sweet. but up till this day I have never established a perfect recipe yet.

    Every Bartender makes Every Drink Diffrent. I was taught to make with Tequila as it is one of the "Clear" Liqours on the Bar.
