It's called, "iced tea," because the coke is just splashed in to give it the color of ice tea. Perfectly mixed, it should taste and look just like iced tea. They're creeper and will have you hammered long before you realize it.

It should be noted that most recipies call for 1/2 shots of the liquors, not full shots. MANY years ago when I was bartending, tequila was not a regular ingredient, but it has become one, it seems . The places that will really make you ill are the ones that serve ice tea with everclear...it tastes great, but will wipe you out in a hurry.

The best are when they are shaken. I used to bartend and that was the secret, plus not too much coke, just top it off like Jason said. If you shake them it blends everything together really great and top with a lemon!

I was a bartender for most of my twenties and the recipes shared here a mostly accurate. Wizardof1961 shares an expensive call (name brand) potion but generic well does the job nicely too.
• One Hurricane glass filled 3/4 with cubed ice
• 1oz. light rum
• 1oz. light tequila
• 1oz. vodka
• 1oz. gin
(all of the 'white' well bottles)
• 1/2 oz. triple sec
Long Island Ice Tea: Fill to top with equal parts sweet & sour and cola
Long Island Lemonade: Fill to top with equal parts sweet & sour and 7Up

The LI Lemonade is especially delicious when poured into a blender with 1 packet of Sweet & Low and the core of a lemon (cut off each end and carefully run around the inside of the rind with an ice pick - save and slice the rind for lemon twists), no ice. Blend to mix and chop up the lemon then pour over ice. This is really delicious and was super popular with my customers. Careful though, they go down easy and can come up too fast!
