they're a long island iced tea song it's like a long island iced tea song no there should be one right we should have a long island iced tea song take me here to jones beach i really want to throw up ah the fort island iced tea that's my song for
thisLong Island iced tea strong island hey guy said I'm from New Jersey I don't know in New Jersey we would call them Benny so when they come to our beach do they know? I don't know that he is characterized by wearing socks and sandals. Why is New Jersey better than Long Island?
Reasons. Actually, I don't know what it is. Let's see. We probably have more miles of coastline facing the sea. We would say we have more miles of ocean frontage. shoreline but long island dammit utley has more shoreline cuz you go all the way we have way more superfund sites than you which sounds bad but actually its because we ain't hiding them let's make a long island iced tea today so
drinkwas supposedly invented by bartender robert rosebud but last name but for a triple second sponsored cocktail competition in oak beach on long island no sometimes in the 70s it went gang bang people drank this stuff all over the recipe standard i'll put it on screen right now if you want it to be that way do it not particularly a fan it's not the way i want to go here today actually we're going to take let's make jeffrey morgan dollars to assume this which is basically the same recipe will rebalanced slightly and refined a bit so we'll need all the booze to make this Long Island don't feel forgotten strong isles will tell you anything plus Brooklyn but or even Queens, I don't.
I know I mean that's it on Long Island. I think it's weird that Brooklyn isn't part of Long Island, so now I have bad news for you, Williamsburg, you live on my island. the shaker shake it let's put it in a
glassof Collins one thing come on there's a little coke in this I recommend making your own Cola or something like sentiments but Geoffrey Morgenthaler asks for Coke in the interest of using what best of them. real Mexican style Coke with sugar everyone seems to think makes a world of difference. I'm not that convinced but I don't want to get yelled at so what we're doing is the first thing I need is a lemon and I'm going to need three quarters but I need three quarters of an ounce of lemon juice earlier this week I did the of all this is going to be the best of all you'll notice it's not absent in this version i think it's because the absinthe will take over something like this we want half an ounce of london dry gin use what you want i like ford like this that i get you a lot on the show i like the beef tour i have no problem with most of these a half ounce of rum Geoffrey Mergenthaler recommends a three star plantation I think there is probably a half ounce of tequila Delanco plated a Blanco tequila I think anything that is 100% agave will be fine 1/2 ounce of vodka no matter what vodka you use full disclosure that was a little fatter than a half ounce a half ounce of Cointreau or some kind of orange liqueur this is going to be a little m Rounder and a bit sweeter than a Cointreau, which is a bit tart but not so tart that I think we need to make up for it, I think there needs to be a slightly different version of this
I would say, obviously, a better version. A quarter to a half ounce of simple syrup. This is two parts of sugar, one part of water. Demerara Jeffrey Morgenthaler asks for two teaspoons yes somewhere between a quarter and a half ounce of simple syrup ok I see we're going to put this is a Collins
glassso your frequent Long Island iced teas will go in a glass of a pint they are a little more uminous volume this has been reduced to make it a little more manageable that's kind of like Morgan Dollars if I read that correctly that's their philosophy behind this formulation of the drink is to make it more like a cocktail and less like a Mind Obliterator You noticed my ice cold beers are a little shorter I didn't like it I thought they were leaving a little less volume in my glass than I wanted Now let's float three quarters of an ounce of coke in this glass label out give this possible pay and by sponsored by coca-cola and we garnish this with a lemon twist this is morgenthaler long island iced tea it's very good it's ok full disclosure my first thought was that this might not be m i drink when i hit my mouth and but then it wasn't bad that's kind of like taste is subjective and not everything is to your liking so i try to describe it objectively but while i was thinking that changed a bit and i got something i thought was very y I'm still enjoying us it's really I don't know some kind of it really made me think of the holidays and it's good actually I liked it a lot it's a little it's approachable it's a little sweet definitely sweet it's more it's more more lemony than anything else honestly , the lemony citrus aspects of coke found there stand out surprisingly because Coke has a lot of citrus notes, they just get lost and the sugar tastes like iced tea it's been so long since I don't drink sweetened iced tea that I had to remind myself that this is what iced tea tastes like yes it tastes a bit like a batch of iced tea 4c Sweet Lewis is taken very easy very nice long drink on a hot summer day my guar ition is not cooperating illinois dead at the moment some of that coca-cola stuff but what is that? a lot of good stuff so long island has the laura i see new jersey has the jersey sunset i did on the show and i'm trying to remember i think the recipe for jersey sunset was olive oil equal parts toxic waste and seawater shake to a foam then blow on the back of a spoon you are heating up now im kidding i have a lot of lyle friends and very good lifelong friends and i am from new jersey so so there's a long-standing rivalry between New Jersey and Long Island, so I kind of wanted to lean into that a little bit, really, it's just silly for New Jerseyans and Long Islanders to argue when we have Staten Island between us to beat.
I mean the sea will swallow that place any day please. Well, guys, I think I've pissed you off enough. You better stop talking and go film the next episode. That's what I'll do. this could start time travel and then that will help me stay and get back on s correct time
