Long Island Iced Tea contains no tea. Within its innocence it packs in quite a wallop. A superior Long Island Iced Tea contains equal parts of gin, vodka, rum, triple sec and tequila, all white drinks, and is topped with Pepsi or Coca-Cola. The combination of the five kinds of alcohol makes a heady cocktail. A bartender by the name of Robert Butt has been credited with creating the cocktail in the 1970s at the Oak Beach Inn in Hampton Bays, Long Island. The other, more interesting story, is that the drink was invented by bored Long Island housewives who added a little of everything in their bar cabinet so their husbands would not find out they had been drinking.
