An Innocuous Long Island Ice Tea

Even if the weather isn't right where you are right now,
in our virtual bar it's always perfect!

With love from
The Supercargo.

PS: Not sure anyone can read that now I look at it on the screen ... and I forgot the Cola! Here it is again (with correct spelling of 'recipes' too).

Relative proportions for a Long Island Iced Tea

1:Triple Sec (some recipes double this, some leave it out)
2:Gin
2:Tequila
2:White rum
2:Vodka
2:Lemon juice (some recipes halve this, some replace with Sweet and sour mix)
6:Cola
Fine powdered (icing) sugar

Fill a tall glass half full of ice. Add all the ingredients. Stir. Garnish with a slice of lemon and a sprig of mint.

  2. If you want to use up a lot of mint, Schnicka, you'd do better with a mojito.

    But very pleased - as ever - to be someone's hero ...
