Long Island Iced Tea

Long Island Iced Tea

By  •  Rum, Tequila, Summer

Long Island Iced Tea has disputed origins. Tea. However, numerous sources attribute the origin to one or both of two inventors in the 1970s or 1920s. The most believable is that Robert “Rosebud” Butt claims to have invented the drink as an entry in a contest to create a new mixed drink including Triple Sec, in 1972 while he worked at the Oak Beach Inn on Long Island, NY. Local rumors also ascribe the origin to either Butt or another bartender at the Old Beach Inn, Chris Bendicksen. It remains a kick sand in your face and get drunk kinda drink with 4 spirits and a cordial that make this drink about 22 proof when all is said and done. Back in the 20’s when many spirits were passed off as “tea” to avoid the stigma of drinking there were some similar drinks and even if they were a precursor to this drink, it is more of a nod then a true twist on those drinks.

Pina Colada

Pina Colada

Ramón Marrero, created the Pina Colada using Don Q rum. After spending months perfecting the recipe, Mr. Marrero created and sold the first piña colada on August 15, 1954, while working as the head bartender at the Caribe Hilton International Hotel, the most popular hotel in Puerto Rico among the 1950s. Mr. Marrero subsequently received numerous awards and recognition for his creation. The earliest known reference to a drink specifically called a piña colada is from TRAVEL magazine, December 1922:
“But best of all is a piña colada, the juice of a perfectly ripe pineapple—a delicious drink in itself—rapidly shaken up with ice, sugar, lime and Bacardi rum in delicate proportions. What could be more luscious, more mellow and more fragrant?”
This quote describes a drink without coconut, as the piña colada was originally just the juice of a fresh pineapple served either strained (colada) or unstrained (sin colar). This evolved into a rum drink, and finally it changed into the drink we know today.
