We love summer here at Two Kids and a Coupon, and getting together with our family and friends is one of our favorite things to do. With warm weather on the way we’ve been on the lookout for some fun new cocktail recipes to serve, however, the classics are always a hit as well. One of my personal favorites is a long island iced tea. Here’s how to make it!
Long Island Iced Tea Recipe Ingredients:
- 1 ounce vodka
- 1 ounce gin
- 1 ounce white rum
- 1/2 ounce Triple Sec
- 1/4 tablespoons limeade
- 1/2 cup cola, approximately
- 2 lemon wedges
Long Island Iced Tea Recipe Directions:
Place the vodka, gin, white rum, triple sec and limeade in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously and then pour into two glasses filled with ice.
Add dark cola of choice until the drink takes on an “iced tea color” and then garnish with lemons, cherries, and cute straws.
