The Long Island Iced Tea is a cocktail that became popular in the United States during the 1970s. The traditional recipe for a Long Island Iced Tea includes vodka, gin, tequila, rum, triple sec, and a splash of cola, which is typically served over ice in a tall glass and garnished with a lemon or lime twist. The origins of the drink are uncertain, but it is believed to have been created on Long Island, New York, by a bartender who was trying to create a new cocktail that would stand out from the other drinks on the menu. The Long Island Iced Tea is known for its potent combination of spirits, which can make it a very strong drink. Because of its high alcohol content, it has been criticized for being a "party drink" and it is often consumed by young adults and party-goers. Despite this, the Long Island Iced Tea remains a popular cocktail that is enjoyed by many around the world.
