Long Beach CA, hometown to 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. Meaning that it’s really strong. The Long Beach Ice Tea is exactly 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 very refreshed as you get smashed. As far as the specifics of where and who created this cocktail I don’t have the slightest idea. Long Beach California maybe…

The original Long Island Ice Tea was created by Bob Butt 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 cool west coast variation of the Long Island.
