The long island is definitely one of my favorite drinks. It’s baffling to think that so many things together can create such an unexpected flavor. My inspiration for this drink was ginger tea… which I love, so I decided to spice up the classic long island recipe!
-1oz White Rum
-1oz Triple Sec
-1oz Ginger Simple Syrup
(combine 1cup of water with 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of sliced, fresh ginger. Bring to a boil, then turn down to a simmer for about 5 minutes. Allow the mixture to cool before straining into a container.)
-Juice from half a lemon
-Coke to fill
I love the simple twist this variation adds to a classic drink. Plus it’s perfect for summer!
