Have you ever had a Long Island Iced Tea? Don't.
First of all, if you want to make them at your friends' house, you will end up lugging five bottles and accoutrements down the street, clanking together, like a homeless who just scored on garbage day.
Secondly, they take so much effort and FIVE different types of alcohol. Combining five similiar intoxicating ingredients hasn't worked since the Spice Girls.
They end up looking like brown, murky swamp water and taste like every bad hangover you've ever had.
I'm sure my mother is now fainting because she thinks I'm an alcoholic. I'm not Mom! Barefoot Contessa made them - look how refined she is! Although, come to think of it, she's pretty WASPy and lives in East Hampton so she's probably pretty sauced a lot of the time.
