I am boring. Bourbon. But fine bourbon. Bookers, usually. Sometimes Blandons. Or Pappy Van Winkle, but try finding it. Always with the smallest splash of spring water. Good Bourbon needs just a bit of water to bring out the nose and the taste.

Here's one that is great for the summer, just make sure somebody else has your car keys, this one sneaks up on you!  I make these by the blender full so this is for about 3 or 4 normal drinks:  (All measurements are guestimates I just glug it in....) ::)

3 shots Creme de Cacao or Godiva's liqueur of your choice
3 shots Baily's Irish Cream
3 shots Kahlua
Breyer's french vanilla Ice cream to fill the blender about 3/4 full
a splash of half and half
sometimes a squirt of Hershey's chocolate syrup if I'm feeling extra chocolaty
Blend (adding more half and half or ice cream as needed) and enjoy your chocolate-mocha milkshake

Our first choice is a top-shelf Tequila Sunrise made by Pablo, at Diego's Pool Bar at Temptations Resort (formerly Blue Bay Getaway) in Cancun, Mexico ;D



When that's not available, we fancy Long Island Ice Tea - equal parts rum, tequila, vodka, gin and triple sec, splash of lime juice, and cola to taste (they make the best ones at Red Lobster - gonna have me one on Sunday!!)

But I think I'm going to have to print out this thread and add it to my 'cookbook'.

When I was in college the Frats used to mix those up and give them to girls who said they didn't drink, they called it the Velvet Hammer. They never knew what hit them.

Scroll back. There is no tequila in a Long Island iced Tea.

there is in MINE. and also, my Complete Home Bartenders Guide lists tequila as a standard ingredient.

If it was Texas, you probably got a Texas Tea, not a LIT. A LIT has rum, vodka, gin and triple sec. In a Texas Tea, the triple sec is replaced with tequila.
Also in the guide it says the Texas Tea omits the Triple Sec. It might be a misprint however, because Triple Sec is not actually mentioned in the ingredient list (Cointreau is).

Let me clear this up:  There is NO TEQUILA IN A LONG ISLAND ICED TEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is not open for debate.  This is not a conversation. It's a declaration!  LOOK IT UP!
