The Long Island Iced Tea, Reinvented

By and

We here at Supercall don’t shun the Long Island Iced Tea—we elevate it and celebrate it. If you associate the ultra-potent cocktail only with college ragers and rough Sunday mornings, try it again using our recipe. Then, once you’ve realized exactly how great that melange of spirits and cola can be, try one of these upgraded takes. We blew the drink up to punch-sized proportions, upgraded it with top shelf spirits and transformed it into an elegant drink worthy of high tea. Here, three new ways to make a Long Island Iced Tea.

This refined take on the college classic is all grown up and ready for afternoon tea. In place of the cola, which typically gives the Long Island Iced Tea its signature tea color, we added actual cold-brewed black tea for depth and a touch of bitterness. We also used a delicate tea syrup and ramped up the rum for a rounder, fruitier flavor.
