The most interesting thing about Long Island Iced Tea, is that it doesn’t contain any tea; just enough alcohol to render a moose inert. Seriously. I don’t recall having a Long Island Iced Tea prior to making this recipe from a classic recipe (I reduced the lemon juice – a lot), and Hubby and I split one. And I still had trouble feeling my tongue an hour later.

This is one potent drink.

I was, however, surprised at how mild and delicious it was going down. I am sure that is why people have trouble walking after two. The slight bit of tart from the lemon juice doesn’t stop this from being, very, very drinkable.

If you make this recipe, make sure you are in for the rest of the day. Not only is driving not advised, walking might be questionable.
