A variant of Long Island tea, the Long Beach tea is another iconic drink from the Long Island region. Long Beach tea is known for its use of Cranberry juice, which is what makes this drink so special from all of the other “iced teas.” The ingredients are incredibly simple, despite the longer ingredient list than you might expect. From there, it is just a matter of stirring and finally sitting back to take it all in. There are five partial shots of liquor, a few shots of sour mix, and cranberry juice.
Tea drinkers may find this to be one of the tastiest in the tea family. Juice adds a nice sweet note that combines nicely with all those spirits to make a pretty refreshing drink. In addition to being a perfect candidate to be mixed ahead of time, it can also taste great as a tasty pitcher for open-air barbeques or poured into a thermos to enjoy while tailgating or by the ocean. Regardless of where you enjoy it, it’s a fun drink and it’s not as strong as your mind may lead you to believe.
