How to make a Long Island Iced Tea

Everyone's been knocked about by having a couple too many of these bad boys! The strength of the cocktail all depends on the size of the glass you are using but I would recommend the 2.5 shots as listed. Try mixing both lemon and lime juice instead with a splash of sugar syrup! The cola should have plenty of sugar already...

    What brands do you recommend fpr the tequila? I’ve never bought tequila before so I don’t know what’s good. Cheers.

      Sorry I missed your comment until now, bit late I know! Look for 100% blue agave tequila, my go to ‘house’ tequila is El Jimador.. don’t spend too much if you are mixing it with coke in a Long Island Iced Tea… but if you are drinking it straight or mixing margarita’s and have more budget, get Herradura 🙂
