Long Island Iced Tea

Long Island Iced Tea with vodka and gin

We really hemmed and hawed about including this drink in the app. On the one hand, this drink is awful. It’s just a ton of different near-flavorless boozes mixed up and downed almost purely for drunkenness’ sake. On the other hand… well, we’ll let the master, Gary Regan say it (from his seminal tome, The Joy of Mixology): “This is not a well-thought drink, and the notion of mixing all these spirits together is horrifying. Nevertheless, it’s undeniable that the Long Island Iced Tea works. It’s pleasant, refreshing, and somewhat lethal.”

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake everything but the cola with ice and strain into a tall glass filled with ice. Top with just enough cola to make it look like tea, and garnish with a lemon wedge.

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
