- tequila (1/2 oz.)
- sour mix (1 oz.)
- lemon wedge (optional)
- The first step is to have all your ingredients ready. A lemon wedge can be added as an ingredient but this is not mandatory. The flavor of the ice tea drink will still be fabulous even without the lemon wedge.
- Start mixing the drink. In a glass, add in the spirits together with the 1 oz. sour mix. Put some ice inside the glass. Using a spoon, stir the ice tea drink. As an added boost, coca cola can be poured on the mix.If you have decided to add a bit of lemon to the mix, now is the time to add it. Get a slice and use it to garnish the mix.
- Lastly, serve the long island drink. One awesome way to serve this drink is leave half a slice of the lemon right on the glass’ edge. Another nice touch would be to serve it with those colorful miniature umbrellas. For a totally scrumptious snack, serve the long island with a siding of crackers and some cheese.
