A Long Island Iced Tea is a highball made with, among other ingredients, vodka, gin, tequila, and rum. A popular version mixes equal parts vodka, gin, tequila, rum and triple sec with 1 1/2 parts sour mix and a splash of cola. Most variants use equal parts of the main liquors but include a smaller amount of triple sec (or other orange-flavored liquor). Close variants often replace the sour mix with sweet and sour mix or with lemon juice, the cola with actual iced tea, or add white creme de menthe; however, most variants do not include any tea, despite the name of the drink. Some restaurants substitute brandy for the tequila. A true long island as it was originally made did not have tequila.

The drink has a much higher alcohol concentration (˜28%) than most highballs because of the proportionally small amount of mixer. Long islands can be ordered “extra long” which signals the bartender to even further increase the alcohol to mixer ratio.

Outside the United States, this highball is often altered, due to the unpopularity of sour mix [citation needed]. Long Island Iced Tea served outside the States is often made of liquors and cola alone (without sour mix), with lemon or lime juice, orange juice or with lime cordial.

In the UK, Angostura bitters replaces sour mix in the cocktail.

The Peach Long Island is a popular variation of the traditional long island with the tequila omitted for peach schnapps.
