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.

Long-Island-Iced-Tea
Assemble!

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!

Vodka, Rum, Gin, Tequila, Triple Sec, Cola

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

You’re goddamn right I’ve got top shelf booze on my invisible, flying aircraft carrier. Motherfucker.

Vodka: Grey Goose

Rum: Privateer Rum

Gin:  Hendrick’s Gin

Tequila: Tres Generaciones (Patron is also a winner, but I think Nick Fury would appreciate Tres Generaciones’ authenticity.)

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

I do not own an invisible flying aircraft carrier.

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…
