Long Island Iced Tea

When going out last night, a friend recommended I try a Long Island Iced Tea, this drink has to be one of the most potent I have tried.
  • 1 part Vodka
  • 1 part Tequila
  • 1 part Rum
  • 1 part Gin
  • 1 part Triple sec
  • 1 1/2 part Sour mix
  • 1 splash Coca-Cola

(there is no TEA in it)
It has the equivalent of 5 shots in it, and considering it was at the cocktail price of $12, that probably isn't too bad if you want to sacrifice taste for cost when deciding on a drink that will get you in the mood for some dancing ($2.40 for each shot). It was so strong and large, that half way through drinking it (probably after an hour) all the ice had melted and the drink was starting to warm.
It really did taste like someone went to the liquor cabinet and just threw everything together.
Was a good night out though, music was interesting, it jumped from Latin to RnB to 80s pop to Reggae in the space of about 20 minutes - plenty of variety.
