Classic Long Island Tea

Classic Long Island Tea

Classic Long Island Tea Cocktail is a great, basic cocktail that you can create hundreds of variations with.

Ok. This Long Island Iced tea is a cocktail that comes with a lot of controversy. I’ve always understood that it was created during prohibition because it resembled tea. I remember my dad making them during the summer pool parties in the 1960s… but some people say that it wasn’t invented until the 1970s… and many people put this drink in the category of “Frat Boy Drinks” that are disgusting.
