  Attributed to Robert Butt. This is the most popular version of this renowned get-you-legless-drunk cocktail: the five white spirits, sweet and sour and cola. As with many tutti-frutti cocktails that grew up in the 1970s and 1980s, the Long Island was designed to taste innocent - like iced tea, in fact. One way to achieve this is to add the cola to the other ingredients in the shaker and (very carefully) shake all together: the shaking "flattens" the cola's effervescence, making it sweeter and more like iced tea. Using tequila in a Long Island actually turns it into a Texas Tea, and the strong taste of tequila means that it will never taste like iced tea. If you want an authentically iced-tea tasting cocktail, skip the tequila. Variations: Top with cranberry juice instead of cola to make a Long Beach Iced Tea, orange juice instead of cola for a California Iced Tea, or grapefruit juice instead of cola for a Florida Iced Tea.
