Flaca’s Long Island Iced Tea
There are actually two Long Island Iced Tea recipes on this page – Flaca’s Long Island Iced Tea, and traditional Long Island Iced Tea. The traditional long island has about 6 different types of alcohol in it along with a splash of orange juice and cola, but for Flaca’s Long Island all you need is tequila, beer, and lime!
I mixed and taste-tested both recipes!
Taste: 7/10 for Flaca’s Long Island, and 8/10 for Traditional Long Island
Flaca’s Long Island was good and does have a sort of “Long Island” taste to it, but not as good as the real thing. The traditional Long Island is too strong for me, and it’s just not a favorite. I would definitely suggest squeezing the lime/lemon into your drink in either recipe to improve taste.
Just measure and pour!
Cost: Average / Expensive
The Traditional Long Island is definitely going to be on the high end of cost here, especially if you don’t have a lot of the ingredients already. Ingredients include vodka, gin, white rum, white tequila, triple sec, orange juice, cola, and lemon/orange wedges.
Flaca’s Long Island is more affordable, since it just requires tequila, beer, and lime.
