The Hawaiian iced Tea is an example of a modern cocktail that has been birthed in modern times. It may not be as popular as the most popular “iced tea” cocktail – The Long Island Iced Tea – but it is certainly in the same family.

The name really describes the cocktail well so that bartenders can easily remember the ingredients, as Hawaii is often associated with pineapples. The drink is widely considered the most refreshing variation of the Long Island Iced Tea, and is flavorful enough to be a sweet alternative the next time you have an urge for a Long Island. For those who love pineapple-themed cocktails, meet one of the most well-known pineapple cocktails around.

Ingredients:

  • ½ ounce of vodka
  • ½ ounce of tequila
  • ½ ounce of gin
  • ½ ounce of light rum
  • ½ ounce of triple sec
  • 1 ounce of sour mix
  • 2 ounces of pineapple juice
  • Ice

Preparation:

  1. Build the ingredients into a Collins glass over ice.
  2. Stir well.

Equipment:

  • Collins glass

The most common garnish for a Hawaiian Iced Tea is a lemon, as with most “iced tea” cocktails, but considering the theme of the cocktail, a pineapple wedge could work nicely, as well. It should be noted that the drink contains all sorts of different liquors, but the sour mix and pineapple juice do well to combat the taste, so there’s no shame in using cheaper brands if you are not too concerned with the quality of the liquors. This can also help you save big bucks if you are throwing a large summer party or barbecue, which is the perfect setting for a cocktail like this one.

For the DIY enthusiast, purchasing sour mix isn’t necessary, as one can simply make their own citrus-flavored syrup – and it will probably end up tasting better, anyway. It goes without saying that the pineapple juice should be freshly squeezed for maximum taste. The pineapple is the perfect tropical fruit, and it’s not the focus of too many cocktails, but if you are a Long Island Iced Tea fan, and also enjoy pineapples, this one is a no-brainer. Try a Hawaiian Iced Tea today!
