I just learned how to mix a long island ice tea from scratch gentlemen and its delicious!


the recipe i learned is this:
3/4 oz white rum
3/4 oz tequila
3/4 oz gin
3/4 oz vodka
3/4 oz cointreau
1oz orange juice
1oz lemon juice
3oz cola

pour all ingredients into a tom collins glass filled with ice minus the cola(save that for last), then add the cola and add a lemon wedge
gentlemen this is my all time favorite summer drink!

Gin. Tonic. Ice. Lime. Summer.

(But I do have some very fond memories of drinking LI ice teas "Coca-Colas" from an innocent-looking 2L Coke bottle on the subway to Coney Island.)

Don't know the name for it but it consists of a jigger of Seagram's Blackberry Vodka and Simply Lemonade on ice. Another summertime favorite is called a Hemingway Daiquiri made with grapefruit juice, a jigger of Myer's Dark rum over crushed ice in a tin cup with a splashes of lemon and lime juice.

I love Jeremiah Weed or Firefly Sweet Tea (liquor) mixed with lemonade. It's my favorite.

My wife makes a killer margarita, coming in a close 2nd place.

1) Gin & Tonics w/ lime made with Hendricks Gin. For a little twist, I like to float St. Germain on top. NICE! Very Happy
2) Fresh Mojitos are also very nice on a hot day.........

Summer is tough around here. So many "likes and enjoys" to pick just one!! We both enjoy good brew. I'm a lager, Pilsner, pale ale kind-of-guy in the summer; she prefers dark ales, porters, and stouts. On the spirits side, Mojitos, Caihapirinhas, G&Ts, rum & tonics, Dark & Stormy's dominate the bar. I enjoy the occasional Planters Punch or Mai-Tai when the spirit hits me. Chilled white wines for us also; especially the German Moselles and Portuguese Vinho Verdes. Gee, looks like we're a bunch of alcoholics!!!!! lol! FTRPLT

Another vote for gin and tonic. I've been partial to Beefeater for this purpose lately.

Beefeater's is a fine gin (for the money) for both G&Ts and slightly dirty martoonies.
