Its origins are traced back to the famous New Orleans cocktail, the Long Island Iced Tea, but with a unique twist. The base of this cocktail is a combination of vodka, gin, white rum, and triple sec, providing a strong and robust flavor. To balance out the strength of the spirits, a dash of lemon-lime soda and orange liqueur is added, giving the drink a sweet and tangy note. The addition of sour mix, a blend of lemon and lime juice with a hint of sugar, adds a tart and refreshing element to the cocktail. The combination of these ingredients creates a harmonious blend of flavors that will transport you to the bluesy streets of New Orleans with every sip.
