Anyone recognize this drink right above here? Yes, it’s the Long Island Iced Tea and it’s probably my favorite mix drink I have ever had. My wife will tell you that it doesn’t matter what restaurant we go to I’ll always order a Long Island Iced Tea. If the place really knows how to make them I usually order about 2 of them and they can get pretty expensive after a while and always wanted to make them at home. To make a couple of drinks I would have to buy a lot of alcohol and I would have to follow directions, something I hate to do for the drink to taste good. Here’s what you need to make it, which I usually get it from the Food Network.
While walking through the package store looking for something to drink to bring in the New Year with my wife and I ran into this drink called Desert Island Long Island Ice Tea. Now I’m not much of a drinker, maybe a beer here and there but this stuff was 75 Proof. It contained the Rum, Vodka, Gin, Tequila & Triple Sec and that prevented me from purchasing all separately. After buying some tea and a Coca Cola so I had to try it out without the lemon juice and lemons of course. My wife loved it and me being the big Long Island Ice Tea fan I felt it was missing something but it was pretty good though. Next time I go to the store and have time to make some drinks at home I’ll have some lemon juice and the lemons to see if it makes a difference.
