The Miami Iced Tea may not be as popular as its counterparts, but it certainly claims the southern area of the United States in terms of the “iced tea” drinks, and is related to the east coast based Long Island Iced Tea and the west coast based Long Beach iced Tea.

Interestingly enough, only one word separates the drink from the Miami Beach Iced Tea, which is actually just another name for the Electric Iced Tea. Miami is a popular tourist attraction that is associated with beaches, summer, and tropical weather, and the drink certainly reflects that.

Ingredients:

  • ½ ounce of vodka
  • ½ ounce of light rum
  • ½ ounce of gin
  • ½ ounce of triple sec
  • ½ ounce of peach schnapps
  • 1 ounce of sour mix
  • 1 ounce of cranberry juice
  • Splash of lemon-lime soda
  • Ice

Preparation:

  1. Build the ingredients in a Collins glass.
  2. Stir.

Equipment:

  • Collins glass
  • Stirring spoon

It should be noted that some versions of the Miami Iced Tea actually keep the tequila, but the official version does not. The drink stays true to the “Iced Tea” theme of combining various liquors in one drink while still maintaining an “iced tea” taste. The beauty of the drink is that it is able to add some tropical flavor to the drink, while the Long Island Iced Tea remains the original version, and the Long Beach Iced Tea is considered the more aesthetically pleasing version.

It is part of the new modern cocktail phase, where the focus is on fun and partying more so than sophistication. This makes sense, considering that in recent years, Miami has arose in status to be one of the most popular cities revolving around nightlife in the United States, and is now second only to New York and Los Angeles. Some of the most popular celebrities in the world flock to the nightclubs like Liv or Story in the world-famous city. The southern coast certainly deserved its own version of the “Iced Tea” cocktail, and Miami was the obvious choice.
