Sure, you know you want to watch a Marvel superhero movie.
But what are you going to drink while you watch?
This blog to the rescue!
The Movie: The Avengers
The Drink: Long Island Iced Tea
What’s a drink where lots of strong, fabulous ingredients come together to form something unbelievably powerful?
Something that might just kick your ass?
In New York?
That’s right: A Long Island Iced Tea.
First, fill a classy glass with some ice cubes.
Then pour yourself .5 ounces (about a third of a shot glass) of the following:
Vodka ~ Rum ~ Gin ~ Tequila ~ Triple Sec
Add 1 ounce (a scant shot) sweet & sour mix, and 1 ounce of cola. Mix.
Garnish with a slice of lime, because the Avengers are civilized.
And ASSEMBLE for the Battle of New York!
But now you’re wondering: What vodka, rum, gin, tequila, triple sec, and cola should I use? Well, that depends on your budget…
Option A: Nick Fury’s Budget
Vodka: Grey Goose
Rum: Privateer Rum
Gin: Hendrick’s Gin
Triple Sec: Cointreau
Sweet & Sour Mix: Nicky Fury makes his own. Motherfucker.
Cola: Nothing but Coca-Cola for Director Fury.
He also has sweet-ass ice cubes.
Now that’s a Long Island Iced Tea.
Option B: Bruce Banner’s Budget
Vodka: New Amsterdam. Good stuff, and usually under $20.
Rum: Kraken Rum. Also usually under $20.
Gin: New Amsterdam makes a great gin, too.
Tequila: Sauza Silver Tequila
Triple Sec: Finest Call Triple Sec. The name is a lie. But this is cheap.
Sweet & Sour Mix: Mr. & Mrs. T’s Sweet and Sour Mix. $30 for a pack of 6, which may be a lifetime supply. Unless the Hulk really, really likes mixed drinks.
Cola: If you’re on the run in Calcutta, maybe you can’t afford Coca-Cola. Maybe you need to go with Sam’s Cola from Wal-Mart.
Just don’t have too many…
