LIIT tasting session at Hard Rock Cafe

What : LIIT tasting session

Where : Hard Rock Cafe, Saket

Before I tell you anything about the bloggers meet or the flavor of LIIT’s at HRC I would like you all to know a bit more about this drink which is spiked perfect alcohol combinations and everyone’s favorite.

“Drinking a Long Island Iced Tea when not thirsty is one of the few things that separates us from the Beast.”
– Rosebud
The world famous LONG ISLAND ICE TEA was invented in 1972 by Robert Butt, while he was tending bar at the infamous Oak Beach Inn. Nicknamed “Rosebud” by the owner of OBI, Bob Matherson, he participated in a Cocktail creating contest.
Triple Sec had to be included, and the bottles started flying.  His concoction was an immediate hit and quickly became the house drink at the OBI.  By the mid-1970’s, every bar on LI ( Long Island) was serving up this innocent looking cocktail, and by the 1980’s it was known the world over.  Though it looks like the Iced Tea your Mom serves on a summer day, it is actually a combination of 5 different alcohols, with a splash of Coke.  Mention Long Island Iced Tea at a party, and almost everyone has a story to tell…

Now this insight about the drink should interest you in knowing about what we tried and tasted at Hard Rock Cafe, Saket. Our guide in the world of LIIT was JD, oh not Jack Daniels but the man named JD who took us in the past and explained us everything from the origin of the name to the mixing of the alcohols. So apparently only colorless spirits were used in this drink and just to give it a color and feel of ice tea the drink was topped with coke, which by the way happens till date. This is how a Classic Long Island Ice Tea is made.

Now let’s share the recipe with you all:-

The Recipe

2 cups ice cubes
1 part vodka
1 part gin
1 part white rum
1 part white tequila
1/2 part triple sec
1/2 part sour mix
1 splash Coke
Lemon wedges for garnish

Second on our list was Long Beach Iced Tea, the preparation was almost similar the add on was Cranberry juice which added a flavorful taste to the drink and changed the color too. It was good but I couldn’t find much difference so I may not go for this if given an option.

Next came on the table was Long Caribbean Iced Tea, when we say Caribbean what comes first in our mind is MALIBU! Yes, so this iced tea had Malibu and i really liked this one, since Malibu has a little flavor of coconut and sweetness so does this drink. Surprisingly, the flavor was just doubled and the drink wasn’t too sweet at all.

Channel Iced Tea, is a twist to the original Long Island Iced Tea where tequila is added to the drink to add the zest in the already high on alcohol drink. This was another favorite. I will give 3.5/5 to this concoction.

Raspberry Iced Tea was close to the Beach Iced Tea instead of cranberry juice Raspberry juice was added but it was a little different from the previous one.

Boston Iced Tea, Oh my favorite coffee iced tea. You read it right, this was a super drink where the bar tender used an espresso shot to this cocktail. I would highly recommend this if you are a coffee freak or if in case you are looking for something different in your drink.

Last on the list was Texas Iced Tea, a whiskey based iced tea. Well I would like to add something here, whoever said women and whiskey don’t go together then let me correct you here, I truly loved this combination and I would recommend this blend to everyone looking for a change. A 5/5 to this version of LIIT!
