Would you like to be drunk fast? Or do you just love the taste of cola? Then we are happy to present our Long Island Iced Tea recipe.

The origins of the cocktail can be traced back to the 1970s. The bartender Robert Butt mixed the cocktail in a competition. The competition was to invent a new cocktail with triple sec. He worked at the Oak Beach Inn on Long Island and therefore he named the cocktail Long Island Iced Tea.

Here is our cocktail recipe. It should be easy to make so you can make it at home.

Cocktail tips from us

You can easily twist Long Island Iced Tea. Here are a few different ways.

Try to top with sprite or 7up and add kiwi liqueur instead of Triple Sec. Then you have a Tokyo Iced Tea.

You can also just top with cranberry juice instead of cola. Then you have a Long Beach Iced Tea.

Fun fact: Bartenders at the best cocktail bars are not huge fans of Long Island Iced Tea. It's because you try to hide the taste of spirits. It's just a mix of many spirits. In addition, cola is added to hide the taste of alcohol even more. Last but not least you add syrup so it only gets sweeter.
