If anyone is wondering, Long Island Iced Tea was created in the 70s by a bartender we called Rosebud (real name Robert Butt). He served it at the Oak Beach Inn in Hampton Bays, L.I. It was presented over ice in a tall slender iced tea glass with a twisted lemon peel and a straw. Rosebud always made sure it was fizzing when he served it. I remember having two there one night in 1974, and almost falling off the stool.

By the mid 80s, you could order it at practically any bar in the country, and the recipes varied. This is the recipe from the Oak Beach Inn:

An ounce of rum, an ounce of gin, an ounce of vodka, an ounce of tequila, a half-ounce of triple sec, a dash of lemon juice and a splash of Coke.

Shake twice in a shaker, and pour over ice.

Enjoy!

I forgot to add...... Rosebud used Jamaican Rum. Never use white rum, as the rum is what gives the drink its color.
