Long Island Iced Tea

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by NcMysteryShopper

This is the way I make Long Island Iced Tea. It does taste different from the usual Long Island. The citrus is a nice touch. Since I am frequently asked for the recipe by those that try it... I am posting it for all. As always, use quality liquor. Cheers!
