The history of the long island
After seeing the actual preparation, it is also important to know the history of this drink. In fact, you must know that the cocktail, also known as long island ice tea, does not have tea inside it, but owes its name to the fact that its appearance and its flavor are reminiscent of that of iced tea served in the summer season . To obtain this result, however, it is essential to dose all the ingredients correctly.
It seems that the drink was invented around the 70s by an American barman; Mr. Rosebud Butts worked at a venue located on Long Island in upstate New York , from which the cocktail takes its name. Another legend, however, traces the origins of the alcoholic drink back to the 1930s characterized by a mix of alcoholic ingredients to which coca cola was then added to camouflage the alcoholic base of the cocktail.
