Late at night with a craving for a Long Island Iced Tea, I decided to look up the ingredients. Due to my somewhat limited bar collection, a Long Island was out of the question. But the the craving was still there, could I create a similar drink? That was the beginning of the Short Island Sweet Tea.
Step 1: Ingredients
- White Rum: 1 oz.
- Gin: 1 oz.
- Vodka: 1 oz.
- Simple Syrup (1 to 1 sugar to water ratio): 3/4 oz.
- Coke: Top off to taste.
*The liquor brands are not very significant for the cocktail. Most of the burn associated with the liquors are masked when mixed together.
