Orlando Barkeeps Tea is a trashy classic: the Long Island Iced Tea


Vodka, gin, rum, tequila and triple sec are the good standards that define Long Island Iced Tea, which is often blown up with Tom Cruise “cocktail” promotions at places like the fabled Oak Beach Inn. Add sourdough or lemon juice, fill up with cola and you have an impossible miracle of mixological chemistry: a seemingly cobbled together drink with half-eaten leftovers from the bus tub that somehow tastes like tea.
