3-Mile Long Island Iced Tea, Best Recipe in Months!

Tasting Notes: Iced tea, this is a cocktail that brings little actual alcohol flavor or aftertaste, it’s all about actually tasting like tea even though no tea is present. Very strange indeed.

The 3-Mile Long Island Iced Tea is a variant of the standard L.I.I.T but with some changes to ratios and ingredients you can get an extremely authentic look and feel to your cocktail that acts just like a real iced tea… but we don’t know why. Toss this in a Big Ass Highball Glass and call it an afternoon!

Everyone on set was amazed at the taste, this is a sleeper cocktail recipe that awakes your senses and makes you realize “This is the way a long island should be”

    It would really help if you guys specified the amounts of cola and sour mix. I’m from europe and a “14 oz glass filled with ice” is so incredibly arbitrary. I’m guessing here 2 oz of cola and 1 oz of sour mix? Would that be right?

    I just made this but with just 2 small differences.

    Substituted Triple Sec for Peach Schnapps
    Added no bitters since i have none at the moment but i will be buying some from your site AwesomeDrinks.com very soon.

    Anyways, just had to say that even with those two small differences this drink was still


    recently ordered some syrups, ice trays, shaker and strainer and they are all amazing.

    You mentioned something about doing “shout-outs” a while back on your videos and i am actually interested in doing that for a special occasion so if you could please email me at the provided address that would be great.

    Love the show and looking forward to many more.

    I actually went out and bought gin for the first time just to try this. little hint, Hendricks is not the right gin to get. It tasted good, but also had a sort of cologne flavor to it. once i got some proper gin though, this recipe got used a lot.
