Long Island Ice Tea for Two

Long Island Ice Teas have a reputation as the "Bad Boy" or "Bad Girl" of alcoholic beverages.   This has come about, partially because of the ration of alcohol to mixer but more so because it has been abused over the years.  As in all alcoholic drinks, it needs to be consumed in moderation and sipped appreciably.         

A Long Island Ice Tea does have a smooth taste and is such a special treat for us after a long hot day.   One Long Island Ice Tea is plenty and if we mix it in our little 1/2 liter carafe then we have two perfectly blended drinks to watch the sun set on the patio prior to dinner.   This recipe contains approximately just more than a double shot per drink and is actually a very delicate tasting beverage.

  • 1 oz Vodka
  • 1 oz Silver Tequila
  • 1 oz Gin
  • 1 oz White Rum
  • 1/2 oz Triple Sec
  • 1/2 oz Fresh Lemon or lime juice
