How to make a Long Island Iced Tea cocktail

Your rating: None Average: 5 (1 vote)
Can’t make up your mind on what to drink? How about a bit of everything?! Five white spirits with citrus and Cola (Coke is best!)
What you'll need: 
20ml lime juice/lime juice/mix of both
10ml gomme (sugar syrup)
12.5ml vodka, 12.5ml gin, 12.5ml white rum, 12.5ml cointreau
dash tequila
Cocktail Shaker
Strainer (unless it is built into your shaker)
Tall glass
Lemon/lime wedge
Add all the ingredients except the cola to a cocktail shaker.
Add ice and shake for 10-15 seconds
Fill glass with ice.
Strain the contents of the shaker over the ice.
Add the cola and stir.
Garnish with a lemon/lime wedge.
If you want to make it a little more special add the cola first and then strain the contents of the shaker over the top. The alcohol will sit on top of the cola!
