Aside from stoking some warmth in native Russians for centuries now, vodka is a favoured base spirit for cocktail makers owing its fairly pliable properties; it meekly mingles with other flavours and retains them while infusing strong alcoholic essence.

Long Island Iced Tea

Long Island Iced Tea Recipe

Prep Time

Total Time


Long Island Iced Tea is a drink that is a mixture of five alcoholic beverages including tequila, vodka, light rum, triple sec, and gin. The coloring and taste of this cocktail resemble those of ice tea. Long Island Iced Tea also appears in literature in 1961. The drink is believed to be invented either by Robert “Rosebud” Butt, who claimed to have invented the drink as a part of an entry in a contest, or Chris Bendicksen, both of whom were bartenders at the Oak Beach Inn on Long Island. Since then, there have been quite a lot of variations in the Long Island Iced Tea recipe, lending it a fruitier flavor.
