Long Island Iced Tea


  • 2

    cups ice cubes, plus more for serving

  • 2

    ounces vodka

  • 2

    ounces gin

  • 2

    ounces white rum

  • 2

    ounces blanco tequila

  • 2

    ounces triple sec

  • 2

    ounces maple syrup

  • 2

    ounces fresh lemon juice (from 1 large lemon)

  • 1 ½

    ounces fresh lime juice (from 1 lime)

  • ¼

    teaspoon kosher salt (Diamond Crystal), plus more to taste

  • 8

    ounces Coca-Cola

  • Lemon and lime slices, for garnish


  1. In a large pitcher, combine the ice, vodka, gin, rum, tequila, triple sec, maple syrup, lemon juice and lime juice. Add the salt, which accentuates all of the flavors. Stir with a wooden spoon until the pitcher feels cold to the touch and the ice has dissolved slightly, about 30 seconds. Top with the Coca-Cola.
  2. To serve, pour the cocktail into individual glasses filled with fresh ice, and garnish with lemon and lime slices. Sprinkle with more salt, if you’d like.
