There are all sorts of party traditions associated with electricity in the world, whether we are talking about the electric guitar or the electric slide. However, many may not know of the electric iced tea. It should be noted that the electric iced tea is a variation of the more popular Long Island Iced Tea, but is called electric because of its blue color, which helps it stand out from many other cocktails out there, and makes it more of a fun vacation drink.

It is easy to see how it can make a great outdoors drink, with the brilliant blue of the drink matching the ocean, lagoon, sea, or lake that you might be drinking next to – whether you are relaxing, partying, fishing, or on a boat. Because of its “party” vibe, it is also referred to as a “Miami Beach Iced Tea”.

Ingredients:

  • ½ ounce of vodka
  • ½ ounce of light rum
  • ½ ounce of gin
  • ½ ounce of tequila
  • ½ ounce of blue curacao
  • 1 ounce of sour mix
  • Splash of lemon-lime soda

Preparation:

  1. Build the vodka, light rum, gin, tequila, curacao, sour mix, and lemon-lime soda in a Collins glass.
  2. Stir well.

Equipment:

  • Collins glass
  • Stirring spoon

It should be noted that ice isn’t actually necessary for an electric iced tea, but of course is helpful if it is hot out, to cool the drinker. The cocktail also has something for everyone, by containing vodka, rum, gin, and tequila. The sour, soda, and curacao add enough flavor to where you do not necessarily need to use your rarest and most expensive liquor, since the unique taste will be there regardless. Despite the different liquors involved, it isn’t necessarily the strongest drink, because of the amounts involved, so you can have multiple without worrying about them being too much to handle. If you do want to garnish the drink, a lime or lemon makes sense, as it matches the soda in the cocktail. It doesn’t matter whether you are on vacation, or simply want to feel like you are – if you feel like having a brilliant blue cocktail that goes down well, try the Electric Iced Tea as soon as you can!
