LIT

Luke and I like Long Island Iced-Teas (aka LIT's)...we like to consider ourselves LIT connoisseurs - Bwahahaha! No, really we do. There's this really good restaurant near us called The Weathervane Tavern and they make the best LIT's, so we're always trying to recreate them, but never come quite close. I just made one that's almost like theirs.

1 TBS of each of the following: (half an ounce if you don't have measuring spoons)
Vodka
Dark Rum
Light Rum
Triple Sec
Whiskey
Tequilla

Half the juice of a freshly squeezed lemon (about 2 TBS)
1.5 TBS simple syrup
1/4 Cup Coca Cola

I'm not going to include the steps for this, I figure it's a given. And if you're not sure how then you're probably too young to be drinking. It's supposed to have Gin in it, but we ran out. It would probably taste even better with some, and it would also be 1 TBS. Next time...
