  2. 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.
  3. 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. If you want to to try this drink smoked, check out Aged & Charred.
