Here's recipe about The Long Island Iced Tea

There is no iced tea anywhere in the Long Island iced tea. It is simply the color of iced tea.This is critical knowledge to have if you plan to drink one. Or three. Because not knowing this will get you in a whole heap of trouble.
The Long Island iced tea is the liquor-cabinet equivalent of what the kids once called a "suicide soda" (a big ol' splash of every drink from the soda fountain into one enormous ice-filled cup). On the face of it, the Long Island Iced tea doesn't seem tenable: Vodka, rum, gin, tequila, triple sec — all mingling in the same cocktail glass, tempered only by a dash of sweet and sour mix and a splash of cola. Sounds like trouble. And obviously it can be.
- 3/4 ounce vodka
3/4 ounce white rum
3/4 ounce silver tequila
3/4 ounce gin
3/4 ounce triple sec
3/4 ounce simple syrup
3/4 ounce lemon juice, freshly squeezed
Cola, to top
Garnish: lemon wedge
- Add the vodka, rum, tequila, gin, triple sec, simple syrup and lemon juice to a Collins glass filled with ice.
- Top with a splash of the cola and stir briefly.
- Garnish with a lemon wedge.
- Serve with a straw.
Variations on Long Island Iced Tea
Texas Tea: Add 1/2 cup of your favorite bourbon. It's best sipped outside while doing absolutely nothing.
Long Beach Tea: Substitute cranberry juice for the cola for a fruitier and more intensely tart version of this cocktail. It's a novel option for backyard cookouts.
