The Long Island Iced Tea is what happens when four different spirits collide to create one powerful drink. It’s not clear who thought this was a good idea and if this tastes at all like iced tea, but one can agree that the Long Island Iced Tea is responsible for a few stories of irresponsibility, at least a dozen memories of good times and even more hangovers than we can count.
The story of the Long Island Iced Tea is shrouded in mystery. But rest assured this drink is easy to master, if only one can say the same for the morning after.
Went on a P&O cruise Sydney to New Zealand and they served the cranberry version on deck and called it a Pacific Islands Iced Tea. Then in their bars inside they had the original Long Island Iced Tea. Let's just say in that 4 days I drank a lot of Cocktails but my favourites where the two versions of the Iced Teas.
