The Tokyo Ice Tea cocktail recipe sounds a lot like the Long Island Iced Tea at first, and not just because of the name. Gin, vodka, rum, tequila – it’s a white liquor extravaganza. But after that, the similarity ends. The Tokyo Iced Tea adds 7-up instead of dark cola, and kiwi liqueur instead of triple sec.
It’s a mellow, fascinating sort of flavor with a kick you’re almost guaranteed to underestimate.
- 1 ounce vodka
- 1 ounce gin
- 1 ounce rum
- 1 ounce tequila
- 2 ounces kiwi liqueur
- 1 teaspoon superfine sugar
Pour all ingredients (except the 7-Up) into a chilled old-fashioned glass filled halfway with ice. Fill up the rest of the way with 7-up, stir gently so as not to bruise the alcohols, and garnish with a kiwi round.
