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.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

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.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
