It’s been popular on Long Island for a long time. Hubby was trying to remember who invented this drink. And I was helping him saying any names that come to mind:) Hehe..I really confused him ;) Then we typed of course. Wikipedia says;
'Long Island Iced Tea, a summer drink was first served in the late 1970s by Robert (Rosebud) Butts, a bartender at the Oak Beach Inn, in the Town of Babylon, Long Island, New York'
I love that drink. I prepared it once with the help of a friend before. It was fun to make this drink as much as drinking it:) Here is the recipe if you'd like to give a try.
Long Island Ice Tea
1 part Gin 1 part Rum
1 part Tequila
1 part Triple Sec
1 part Vodka
1 ½ parts Sour mix A little Coca-Cola for color
Mix ingredients(except coke) with ice in a collins glass then transfer to shaker and shake then pour back into glass. Then pour soda water(Coca-Cola, Pepsi, or RC Cola) without stirring. Garnish with lemon or lime.
We didn't realize how late it was. I think we were very loud and woke Aria up:) Lol, he was insist to join to the conversation. He wondered what we were laughing out loud for..Hubby and I looked at each other..that unexpected situation made us laugh louder!(Mom's time out was over!!!)
