Long Island Iced Tea for One Dollar
We know Applebee’s can be hit or miss at times but I think this one is a hit! How often can you get any drink this cheap? Especially one made with many liquors. My wife and I love the Two for 20 dinner deals, I use to pay 3 dollars for this same drink all the time.
What’s in a Long Island Iced Tea?
Its a blend of vodka, rum, tequila, sweet and sour mix, and a splash of cola. The trick to a good Long Island is its perfectly blended together so you can see through it! That’s not Applebee’s but who cares it’s a dollar and if I do say so myself “It’s pretty good!”
Where did a Long Island originate
Robert “Rosebud” Butt claims to have invented the Long Island iced tea as an entry in a contest to create a new mixed drink with triple sec in 1972 while he worked at the Oak Beach Inn on Long Island, New York. I don’t know about you but I felt like it had been around longer this! (Thanks Wikipedia)
I’ll tell the truth in case you were already thinking it, the first Long Island iced teas I ever had I was shocked. Not by how good they were, although they were. I was shocked they actually had nothing to do with iced tea at all. Bummer for a southern folk but hey I like a splash of coke too.
Enjoy the 1 buck drink and go get LIT! (Long Island Tea)
