Long Island Iced Tea

How to make the perfect Long Island Iced Tea

This cocktail is a booze-filled triumph, containing everything but tea. Rumoured to have been created during prohibition on Long Island, intended to masquerade as iced tea to avoid any unwanted attention. It has been extremely popular (and extremely hangover-inducing) ever since. As always, it’s down to how you balance flavours when creating a LIIT – but however rigorous you are, it will always pack a wallop!
