Long Island Iced Tea

What’s in a Long Island Iced Tea? It not only contains Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum but also vodka, tequila, triple sec and gin too. As its name hints, Long Island Iced Tea was supposedly discovered in Long Island, just outside Manhattan, by a buccaneering bartender hoping to make his fortune in a competition.

It certainly wins the Captain’s vote and is his cocktail of choice when he’s looking to take his hat off after a long day at sea. We’ve even used his Original Spiced Rum in our Long Island Iced Tea recipe to give it some extra spice.

This drink is best served ice cold so try making up the sugar and lemon mix beforehand and storing it in your fridge. For a fruitier bounty, swap out the Cola for genuine iced tea.
