If you’re looking to make the BEST LONG ISLAND ICED TEA, look no further.  I’ve had a hell of a time finding a good Long Island Iced Tea recipe.  It seems all LIT recipes are too sour-mixey, too giny, or something else is terrible wrong with them.  Here is my solution – after 8 years of trying to make them (always badly) I’ve come up with my own recipe which I think is great. So here is my version…what I consider to be the best long island iced tea recipe out there! (little tip here, if you want to get REALLY fancy, put a small splash of peach schnapps on top and make it a peach long island! – You may opt to reduce the amount of triple sec if you do this to keep the drink from getting too sweet.)

  • 1oz Vodka
  • 1oz White Rum
  • 1oz triplesec
  • 1 oz sour mix
  • .75 oz tequila
  • .5 oz gin


Shake all ingredients on ice.  Pour into glass filled with crushed ice, and top of with diet coke -I'm guessing it's about 1.5 oz coke.  (or regular coke - I'm not sure how it will change the flavor)  Mix it with a spoon or straw and enjoy! (Most people don't shake this drink....I like shaking most drinks though.)
