Long Island Iced Tea

Did you know that a typical Long Island Iced Tea doesn’t actually contain any tea? We were surprised ourselves, and so we’ve created this delicious twist on the classic cocktail.

This cool glass of Long Island Iced Tea is perfect for any party or Saturday night treat. We’ve added a shot of black tea in the recipe to cut through the sweetness, making it even better than the traditional concoction.

Warning: this drink includes a lot of alcohol and sugar, so be sure to drink in moderation.
