A better, less disgusting version of the drink we love to hate

"Craft cocktails" and "Long Island Iced Teas" don't often appear in the same sentence, but here it is: New Orleans' Twelve Mile Limit has figured out how to make the venerated Long Island Iced Tea into a cocktail.

Anne Berry at Where Ya Eat bravely takes on teh challenge to find a better Long Island Iced Tea and turned to the bar for inspiration; bartender Cole Newton told her he makes a few Long Island Iced Teas a week. To make a truly craft Long Island Iced Tea, Newton uses one-half ounce of each spirit (vodka, gin, rum, triple sec, tequila) mixed with simple syrup and one ounce Coke for the acidity and balance. And that's how a true Long Island Iced Tea is done.

Long Island Iced Tea Ingredients

Long Island Iced Tea Ingredients |There is a confusion about the origin of Long Island Iced Tea. There are two well-known stories related to the origin of Long Island Iced Tea about two people who lived in two eras and in two places.

Oldest story dates to 1920s. According to that story, during the Prohibition period in the United States (1920-1933), a bootlegger named Charles Bishop (Also known as Old Man) has invented this drink. He lived in Long Island, an island in the Holston river at Kingsport in East Tennessee.

But that initial drink only contained Whiskey and Maple syrup and the other liquors were not quite as even as the modern-day drink.

Long Island, Kingsport in East Tennessee

Then the drink was perfected by Ransom Bishop, the son of Charles Bishop. Charles Bishop modified the drink including Maple syrup, Lemon, Lime and varied quantities of five liquors (Rum, Gin, Tequila, Vodka and Whiskey).

Charles Bishop’s drink had a slight difference from the modern drink because the modern drink has Cola and five equal portions of the five liquors.

Robert C. Butt ( Rosebud)

The second story goes back to 1972. According to that story, Robert C. Butt (Also known as Rosebud), a bartender of the Oak Beach Inn, Hampton Bays in Long Island, New York claims the invention of the Long Island Iced Tea.

Oak Beach Inn

He has created this new mixed drink with Triple Sec and a splash of Cola for an entry to a competition and that went down surprisingly smoothly. From there, it gained popularity, becoming one of those classical ‘80s drinks.

In 2018, representatives of the two long islands in the United States had even engaged in a public argument to decide who should take the credit of inventing this fantastic cocktail.

Later, Long Island, New York bartender Butch Yamali wrote an open letter to Kingsport saying “Not since the ‘Battle of Long Island’ in the Revolutionary War has Long Island’s honor been so challenged. We on Long Island celebrate our beaches, our accents, and most of all, our booze.” Yamali concludes by challenging Tennessee to a “Battle for the Tea” to be held in either state.

As a response ‘Visit Kingsport’ Organization’s Executive director Jud Teague responded by a public letter saying “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so thanks a bunch! You may claim you’re the best, but we’ll always be the original and there’s no getting around that. So, in the y’ll versus Yous guys’ challenge, we graciously accept. Be sure to bring your mom’n’em.”

Blindfold taste testers testing the Long Islands during the first round of Long Island Iced Tea Challenge

In June 2019, representatives from the two states met for “Battle for the Tea” in Washington after two taste tests conducted on each state’s home turf.

New York City won the first round of Long Island Iced Tea Challenge held in Hudson’s on the Mile, a bar on Long Island, New York.

New York City won the first round of Long Island Iced Tea Challenge.

The second battle was held on home turf in Kingsport and Tennessee took the victory of it.

  • 1 oz Vodka
  • 1 oz Gin
  • 1 oz White Rum
  • 1 oz Tequila
  • 1 oz Triple Sec
  • 2 oz Homemade Sweet & Sour Mix
  • Splash Coke
  • Ice
  • Maraschino Cherry (for garnish)
  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice
  2. Add all of the alcohol items and Sweet & Sour Mix to the shaker
  3. Shake, Shake, Shake
  4. Pour the mixture into a glass and top with a splash of coke
  5. Garnish with a maraschino cherry

I am already thinking about summer BBQs in the backyard and enjoying these with some friends. With how easy it is to make with these drinks, it would be great to make a big batch in a pitcher and then offer some Coke for each person to top off their drink.

There are a few variations of this traditional cocktail that I like to enjoy as well so I will be sharing those over the next few months.

Do you have a favorite cocktail that you always order when you go out to eat? What is it?

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. [3] [4] [5]

A slightly different drink is claimed to have been invented in the 1920s during Prohibition in the United States by an "Old Man Bishop" in a local community named Long Island in Kingsport, Tennessee. [6] [7] The drink was then perfected by Ransom Bishop, Old Man Bishop's son. This drink included whiskey and maple syrup, and varied quantities of the five liquors, rather than the modern one with cola and five equal portions of the five liquors.

The drink has held its own across popular culture mediums through time. This popularity of the Long Island has spawned its own family of highballs. [4] Many drinks remain popular in their own right in numerous locales throughout the United States, while owing their existence to the success of the original Long Island iced tea. An example of a variation to the Long Island is the Grateful Dead (also variously known as the Purple Rain or the Black Superman), which uses the same mix as a Long Island but the Triple Sec is replaced with a shot of Chambord and the cola replaced with lemon-lime soda. [8] The Adios Motherfucker is considered a variation of the Long Island Iced Tea with Blue Curaçao substituting the Triple Sec and lemon-lime soda substituting the cola it has a distinctive blue color similar to a Blue Hawaiian. [9] If cranberry juice is substituted for cola, the result is a Long Beach Iced Tea and has a reddish color. [10] If Midori is substituted in for the Triple Sec and lemon-lime soda replaces the Coca-Cola the result is a Tokyo Iced Tea and has a greenish color.

Mountain Curios: Long Island Tennessee – The Real Home of Long Island Iced Tea

Jamie Cyphers is the granddaughter of the man who came up with the first Long Island Iced Tea recipe, in the 1920s.

Always thought the recipe for Long Island Iced Tea originated on New York’s Long Island? Think again. They have a version of the mixed drink, for sure, but the folks who lived on Long Island, Tennessee, in Kingsport were decades ahead of their Northern counterparts.

Charles Bishop, known as “Old Man Bishop,” came up with the first recipe in the 1920s, right in the midst of prohibition. In the 1940s, his son, Ransom Bishop, put his own spin on the recipe by adding coke and a squeeze of lemon and lime.

Ransom’s granddaughter, Jamie Cyphers, says she grew up hearing her grandfather referred to as a “businessman.” As an adult, she realizes his business was bootlegging and cards. She recalls a steady stream of people coming to her grandparents’ house for Ransom’s moonshine as well as her grandmother’s home brew.

“My mamaw is the one who went to jail for it,” said Cyphers. “She was a little tiny woman and stayed in jail a day or so.”

Cyphers says while her grandfather had a rough appearance and unpleasant attitude, he was quite fond of his grandchildren, and worked hard to keep them away from the surrounding Holston River. He feared they’d drown, or at least that’s what he told them. She now wonders if it was to keep them from finding liquor—he would hide it in the river out of the sight of authorities.

The City of Kingsport is proud to be the site of the original recipe and has recently engaged in a friendly competition with Long Island, New York. They conducted two blind taste tests—one in Long Island and one in Kingsport. Competitors included bartenders at Hudson on the Mile on Long Island and Randy Ashens and Shane Winegar of East Coast Wings and Grill in Kingsport. Each version of the drink won on its home turf.

Now they’re trying to decide where to host the tie-breaking event for the BEST Long Island iced tea, but not the title of “original.” Kingsport has that distinction locked up since the Long Island version wasn’t created until the 1970s. The difference between the two—the New York version includes triple sec and sour mix while the Kingsport version has maple syrup, whiskey, Coke, lemon and lime. Both versions contain tequila, rum, gin and vodka.

  • 4 oz. cola
  • Squeeze ½ Lemon and ½ Lime
  • 1 oz. Whiskey
  • ½ oz. Maple Syrup
  • ½ oz. Tequila
  • ½ oz. Gin
  • ½ oz. Rum
  • 1 oz. Vodka

The Very Still by JS Moore

Prohibition only drives drunkenness behind doors and into dark places, and does not cure it or even diminish it.
-Mark Twain

Ransom Bishop lived at 1612 Island Drive just beside the Sluice. He was a businessman who didn’t have to work because he collected a substantial income each month from various sources. His still was all the way across Chigger field and positioned on the Sluice. Actually, the still was across the Sluice and Long Island on Mr. Rodefer’s property. Don’t worry – the Bishops had to pay a toll and neither Clay Rodefer nor his own father ever went without. No one would have suspected a burned-out mercantile man like Ransom to be making home brew. But, truth be told, he was the cream of the crop on Long Island. And he was a perfectionist when it came to the taste of his liquor. His still produced a hundred gallons at a time and Bishop sold his product for a wholesale price of around seventy-five cents a half gallon to the Click Brothers. Ransom would run several trout lines out into the Sluice with the containers hooked to the line as well as some fish to keep it legit. Whenever he wanted a quart or twenty he’d bring in whatever was desired and some fish as well for dinner. The street value of a half gallon was more than double that and the Click Brothers couldn’t keep it stocked at Club 81 – their rough and tumble underground dive by the bridge on Hwy 81. Club 81 was on private property and signs were everywhere stating “trespassers will be shot on sight.” This kept the law away and it discouraged outsiders from Highland, Blair’s Gap, and other seedy areas from thinking they could come in unannounced or uninvited.

First and foremost Ransom Bishop was a salesman. It was said among those who had acquaintance with him that he was smooth enough to ball up any religion and sell it back to the church. My Papaw owed him money from a gambling debt and paid him every time the Eastman gave out bonuses. But Ransom had taken advantage of Judd Moore not knowing how to count when he cashed my Papaw’s paychecks at week’s end. He’d pay a carefree Judd with one dollar bills so it would look as if he was giving a lot back. Once Opal had taught Judd how to count, though, he knew he’d been swindled out of a small fortune. The salesman Ransom could not sell any excuse to Judd Moore and the tension between the two thereafter was evident, though it never came to blows between them.

Now Ransom Bishop, it is said many times over, was clever, the sharpest knife in the drawer. And I know writing this might send some rich businessman into a fit but it is the honest truth as I know it to be, and I will share it anyway. Ransom’s father was also a pretty smart feller and also a bootlegger and it is believed his father invented a certain drink, passed the recipe on to his son, and Ransom perfected the cocktail – which now has several variations. Long Island, New York would love to take credit for this one and still does to this day – since 1970 as a matter of fact. But as we all know - common people often times aren’t recognized for their ingenuity. Invented during Prohibition by Old Man Bishop and perfected by Ransom in the 1940’s:

One fresh Lemon half
One fresh Lime half

Squeeze both into a pint glass

½ oz. Rum
1 oz. Vodka
1 oz. Whiskey
½ oz. Gin
½ oz. Tequila
½ oz. Maple Syrup

Mix Thoroughly Then pour in 4 to 5 oz. Soda Water (Coca-Cola, Pepsi, or RC Cola) without stirring.

Teetotaler drunks have a native Long Island, Tennessean to thank for their alcohol fix. Thank-you Ransom Bishop.

Suggested listening: Night Life by Ray Price

Understanding Apples by JS Moore is about an area of Kingsport, Tennessee known as Long Island - once a sacred and holy ground to the Cherokee but cursed by the Native Americans when they forfeited their land.

"No man would find peace there."

Understanding Apples is a mere window of events - of what life was like thereafter - offering several stories during the Prohibition era.

The book will be available from Outskirts Press after October 13, 2006. It may be purchased at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Baker, Ingram, and Taylor, Books In Print, or anywhere books are sold.

Preorders can be made by contacting the author (replace words in parentheses with appropriate symbols):

JSMoore (at) charter (dot) net

Orders made before October 13th will come personalized.

JS Moore was born in Kingsport on January 14, 1974. The younger of two boys, JS was known for his fast talking friendliness, which earned him the nickname "Auctioneer" by his grandfather.

As a child JS took interest in stories, both reading and telling them. At age thirteen he was in a storytelling group that traveled around the area sharing stories with anyone who might listen.

From childhood to adolescence JS developed a great bond with his grandfather, Judd Moore, who told him stories about what his rough-and-tumble life had been like.

And JS always told his Papaw that one day he was going to write a book about him. Tragically, Judd Moore was killed in an accident in 1991. The loss came as a surprise and over a decade passed before JS was ready start telling his Papaw's stories.

But in 2003, JS decided the time was right, and he began compiling the stories he loved so dearly as he was growing up.

It is those stories that he now shares with everyone in Understanding Apples .

We aren't talking about one shot or two shot drinks here. This a five shot drink and there are states that actually limit a bartender to as little as 2 per customer per "night out" because of the potential danger of alcohol poisoning and death.

5 in a half hour is without question equals alcohol poisoning. 11? We're talking death. In a bar, even the seediest of bartenders wouldn't serve a single individual that many and one that would needs a new line of work. ASAP.

Any suggestions as to what type of liquors to use in this list? White or gold tequila? Malibu rum? Skyy vodka? And what are people suggesting I replace with Top Shelf, or is this just an addition?

I love this drink but sometimes I get it and it tastes horrible or it doesn't have hardly any affect on me (low alcohol content). What can I tell the bartender to do to make sure it's a good one?

Still my favorite drink! I was always very timid when it came to dancing at the club. A guy introduced me to it. Actually, bought me one. I loved the wavy glass it came in. I've been drinking them since. I've slowed down a lot though. I would have 5 in one night at the club, now I just enjoy 1 or 2 at our local sports bar and I'm good. Still, NOT too many know how to make a GOOD one. I'll try the pineapple juice next time I get me one.

JUST BE CAREFUL, they are a killer!

12 oz. of orange juice, and 4 can cokes.
Mix the alcohol and chill with ice before adding the coke and Orange Juice.
It keeps for days in the fridge.

I had one of these for the first time last night. It was amazing. I slammed down two of them.

Sadly the bar I went to was lame and only used a half shot of each alcohol and the rest coke and/or sweet and sour.

I felt decent but not as good as I should have.

Whiskey finished that for me.

It doesnt take 5 shots.. its a lot less than that for each kind of alcohol, otherwise people would just be falling on their asses after the first one.

But, besides that, its amazing how it doesnt taste like it has all that alcohol in it.. just awesome =D

This is one of my favorites. If you use TOP SHELF you will be much better in the morning after a couple of these.

Middle line alcohol will be just OK, and you pay the next day. It is a fun drink for serious drinkers only.

Be careful, they will kick your butt if you drink to many.

As posted above (I am SO sorry I grieve with you, mep), this drink (while wonderifishly delicious) can be a TRUE KILLER.

I, personally, enjoy the flavors of vodka or gin and tolerate the flavor of rum (in moderation). I also understand the how's and why's Triple Sec is used (almost as a "garni") in many, many alcoholic beverages.

At the same time, my "constitution" has never been able to cope with Tequila (in any amount damn, that stuff is ROCKET FUEL!). Therefore, if and whenever I order or make Long Island Ice Tea (either for myself or for a group of friends), I MAKE IT A POINT to either request my drink without tequila or make my batches without it.

And you know what? It is just as flavorful (if not moreso) and just as enjoyable (if not moreso). But NOT as "toxic".

In my experience, add tequila to this recipe (or any other) and you are falling off your chair (or otherwise embarrassing yourself) after 2 or 3 ELIMINATE the tequila, and you can be "good" for either an afternoon or an evening without either horrific consequences or horrendous repercussions.

I drink these baby's all the time, and if mixed right, you cant get better!!
I go with Bacardi, Smirnoff, Bombay, Cointreau, and Olmeca (the only tequila i can get really), lime cordial, and a dash of coke for colour. If you mix this right, its just like normal iced tea with a bite!!

I drink 7-8 of these along with a few tequila shots regularly, and apart from a few lost passages of time, have always been fine.
Verdict: Unbeatable!!

posted by tipsy Mcturbo @ 09:40PM, 4/16/07

Tweak #1. Add a splash of premium tequila. Por ejemplo, Patron Anejo. Do not even think of adding cuervo.

Tweak #2. Use equal parts of the other 4 liquors to fill your glass within 1/2 inch of the top. Then splash of Sweet&Sour, splash of Coke. You could fuel your plane with this stuff.

Tweak#3. Teaspoon of real lemon juice, more or less to taste.

I used to drink these "Topshelf long Islands" exclusively-the barkeep would start pouring it as soon as I walked in-one girl would catch my eye, throw the glass to the ceiling, catch it, scoop ice and start the pour before I even got to the bar. Good thing I got a discount, which I just added to the tip. Anyway, great drink. I'm thirsty.

Had my first before a Billy Joel concert as a tribute to Mr. Long Island himself. After a second, I was ready to go alllll night long. I was dancing, singing, and just generally being obnoxious and completely uninhibited all the way through to Piano Man :)

I've tried to make my own sweet and sour after finding none in canada but it still did not taste proper. A recent trip the US and i found something called Finest Call, needless to say i brought a case back with me, and some premix LIIT. Perfect.

I cant say anything about there other products but the sweet and sour is top notch.

Very refreshing and does the job in little time.

The only drawback is that when it is not put together well the taste of alcohol is very much present but when it is, it's quite the trickster.

I and Friends went to a mexican restaurant and when asked what I wanted to drink I asked for a pitcher of Long Island Iced Tea, the waitress was about to leave when I stopped her, and said, "No thats what I want, I don't know what these guys want!" the look on her face was priceless, it was even better when I asked for a second pitcher half way thru the evaning.

You only get one chance at life take what you can, enjoy what you can, cause you may not get the chance tomorrow.

This is one of the best drinks that I have found if you have it mixed right (get a girl bar tender to do it!!) Do you wanna get the best drink.. ok write this down.
1/2 shots (thats half shots of)
Barcardi 151
Vodka (Smirnoff)
Add fresh LIME!
and to finish off add coke.

To make it a Toyko Iced Tea.
Instead of Teq add Midori
Instead of Coke add Lemonade.

When properly made it tastes easy and smooth. I tried mixing my own today and experimented with amounts of the liquors. After 3 my shoes were on me upside down and EVERYTHING looked blurry. 4 and I was ready to mow my lawn with a pair of scissors. let's just say I tried a few more tries and woke up with my pants around my ankles hanging from a tree branch. wow. where did all these smurfs come from and why are they worshipping me?

. just kidding, but this drink does put the 'lick' in liquor. sing along with me "yeah I like to drink liquor cuz it gets me drunk quicker, when I fall down on the floor shouldn't have too many more, YEE-HAW!! YEAH.

I pound these while sitting on the slot machines in Atlantic City (and getting pretty fucked up in the process).

I want everyone to be careful with this, O.K.? If you want a refreshing but strong drink follow all the recipes, but if you just want an easy tasteless buzz this has worked for me.

Use EXACTLY 2oz of the whites except tequila. Top with Sprite and a squeeze of a real lemon. Tastes like water with a slice of lemon and can guzzled but watch out!

1) Using 1 part fresh lemon juice and 3/4 part (or more to taste) simple syrup* instead of sweet & sour mix (yuck) is more important than using "top shelf" liquor

2) Since this is more of a "get wasted drink" than a connoisseurs or sipping cocktail, use "mid shelf" liquor (my pick: skyy vodka, bacardi rum, 1800 silver tequila, tanqueray gin). Cointreau would be best for the triple sec, but, again, a bit too expensive for this kind of drink

*Simple syrup: 2 cups water to a boil, ad 2 cups sugar, stir until clear, let cool, refrigerate

I agree with the majority that you want to go with Top Shelf.

When I was a bartender, these were a favorite. However, once while experimenting, instead of using sweet and sour mix, I put all the ingredients in a blender with two ice cream scoops of fresh lemon sorbet and blended. They became so popular in the summer that people came to our restaurant just to get the famous frozen LI/IT.

I am from the US and currently living in Sweden for 6 months. Came over here drinking long islands and have been making my friends here try these (since they never have). They wake up hating me the next morning. HAHA. Classic drink and is excellent! Definitely are a wicked drink though!

Question: I can't find sweet and sour mix here and Im not sure I can find pineapple juice. Any suggestions on what to use?
