The Long Island iced tea was my drink of choice through college, and even now, making this cocktail at home brings me right back to my college days. I revamped this recipe by adding strawberry purée for sweetness, but feel free to swap out with your favorite fruit — blueberries, raspberries, even mango.
You can even make a huge batch if you’re hosting a crowd. Go ahead — relive your college days. We dare you.
