I just might have found my newest favorite cocktail. This was delightful. I am not sure why it blends up so nicely, but I think maybe the zesty citrus touch offsets the alcohol kick. Whatever the case may be, it sure was wonderful. Made for Football tag game 2011. Thanks for posting the recipe, ratherbeswimmin'.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the tequila, rum, vodka, Cointreau, gin, lemon juice, and simple syrup into a cocktail shaker filled 3/4 with ice.
  2. Shake well and strain into a tall glass two-thirds filled with ice.
  3. Top with cola and a lemon twist; serve immediately.
  4. *To avoid the overly sweet taste of high-fructose corn syrup, use Boylan Cola or Mexican Coca-Cola, which still uses cane syrup as its sweetener.
