The Long Island Iced Tea is known for its high concentration of alcohol—it's made with vodka, tequila, gin, rum, and triple sec. Despite its name and appearance, the Long Island Iced Tea neither tastes like nor contains any tea at all—its signature amber hue actually comes from only a tiny splash of cola. Even though the Long Island Iced Tea only contains a small amount of mixer, it has a smooth taste and is a favorite for those who desire a drink that packs a strong punch.
