Long Island Iced Tea Recipe

Prep time
   5 mins

Long Island Iced Tea, despite its name, does not contain iced tea, but is named for having the same amber hue as iced tea. Its flavour has been described as "bright and refreshing" and it is easy to drink, making it "dangerously boozy", according to Olly Smith.


  • 50ml vodka, 
  • 50ml gin
  • 50ml tequila
  • 50ml white rum
  • 50ml triple sec
  • 50 -100ml fresh lime juice
  • ice
  • 500ml cola
  • 2 limes, cut into wedges


  1. Pour the vodka, gin, tequila, rum and triple sec into a large (1.5l) jug, and add lime juice to taste. Half fill the jug with ice, then stir until the outside feels cold.
  2. Add the cola and stir gently to combine. Drop in the lime wedges.
  3. Fill 4 highball glasses with more ice cubes and pour in the iced tea.
  4. Enjoy!
