About the Long Island Iced Tea
The Long Island Iced Tea, or LIIT, is one of the better-known cocktails out there. It requires four different spirits and is definitely one to pack a punch, particularly if the flavour combinations are sacrificed by the bartender in the pursuit of strength. Fortunately, a good bartender – or a solid recipe like this one – knows that when it comes to a Long Island Iced Tea, ratios are everything and greed leads to disaster.
Whichever theory you subscribe to, the fact remains: the Long Island Iced Tea is one of the most popular cocktails in the world. And its appeal lies in more than its strength; the combination of spirits actually works well, with the cola top-up providing high levels of bubbly refreshment, just like a regular iced tea.
S-liquor Top Tip
There are no rules to putting your own spin on the Long Island Iced Tea. Play with lemonade instead of cola, or a combination of the two, or try swapping our spirits. Different gins will bring different botanicals to the mix, altering the flavour profile of your cocktail. You may just stumble upon your new favourite.
