Best Long Island Iced Tea Cocktail Recipe
Another one of my favorite Summer Cocktails is my twist on a classic cocktail! With a simple substitution you get an entirely new, refreshing drink! Also, this has 2x the amount of alcohol than a standard restaurant cocktail, so consider this recipe a DOUBLE!
GINGER LONG ISLAND ICED TEA
1 oz White Rum
1 oz Silver Tequila (100% Blue Agave)
1 oz Vodka
1 oz Gin
0.5 oz Triple Sec
0.5 oz Fresh Lemon Juice
0.5 oz Simple Syrup
4 oz Ginger Ale
Garnish: Lemon Wedge
In a Shaker, add in Ice, Rum, Tequila, Vodka, Gin, Triple Sec, Fresh Lemon Juice, and Simple Syrup. Shake until well blended. Strain and pour over Fresh Ice.
Top with Ginger Ale. Add a lemon wedge for garnish. You can also garnish with cherries as well.
Using Ginger Ale instead of Coke gives it an entirely new taste. The cocktail becomes noticeably lighter and more refreshing.
This is also a great drink to create as a batch cocktail for parties. Just remember NOT to prepare it ahead of time with Ginger Ale. Have your guests top off their drinks with it instead.
This cocktail is so good, you may be prone to consume it at a faster pace than normal so be mindful. This is a strong cocktail and will sneak up on you and your guests. Please drink responsibly.
