Texas Tea

In the family of Long Island Iced Teas, you'll see people drinking tall, potent versions at college frat parties. Ah, youth! In The Craft of the Cocktail, Dale Degroff creates versions that actually taste good, and do not have to be an immediate ender to your evening.

  • ¼ ounce vodka
  • ¼ ounce white rum
  • ½ ounce tequila
  • ½ ounce triple Sec
  • 1 ounce lemon juice
  • 3-4 ounces Coca-Cola®
  1. Shake all the ingredients, except the coca cola in a cocktail shaker and pour in a tall collins glass filed three quarters of the way with ice. Top with three to four ounces of Coca Cola and stir. Garnish with a wedge of lemon. For a sweeter drink, add a ½ ounce of simple syrup.

Note: For a Dirty Texas Tea, use orange juice instead of lemon juice.
