the perfect long island iced tea

Friday, January 30, 2009

In a pint glass, mix

1 shot Beefeater
1 shot Jose Cuervo regular
1 shot Smirnoff Blue Label
1 shot Bacardi Superior

1 shot Cointreau

you can add the first four shots in any order you like, just make sure the Cointreau is last.

2 shots sour mix -- forget the brand, but it had a Hispanic woman with a flamboyant dress on the label

Add plenty of shaved ice -- and it has to shaved -- cubes don't work, and top off with Coca-Cola.

Don't fret about the color; if the drink is mixed properly, there shouldn't be an overpowering taste of alcohol.
