Long Beach, CA, is the hometown of the great Snoop Dogg and this refreshing variation of the Long Island Ice Tea. Just like the original Long Island Ice Tea, this cocktail is a one-and-done drink, which is powerful. The Long Beach Ice Tea is precisely the same as the long island but replaces the coke with cranberry juice and turns it into a fruity and slightly tart cocktail. So it will still floor you, but you will be refreshed as you get smashed. As far as where and who created this cocktail, I don’t have the slightest idea. Long Beach, California, maybe…
Bob Butt created the original Long Island Ice Tea in 1972; this drink was an entry into an orange liqueur mixing contest, even though there is hardly any orange liqueur in that cocktail. I hope you enjoy this fantastic west coast variation of the Long Island.
