Long Island Iced TEA PARTY Punch

Thank goodness the Tea Party isn't irrelevant yet...if only for this great party punch!

Long Island Iced TEA PARTY Punch

Makes 26 servings, 8 oz. each

The drink that defines the movement:  there is no deficit in the amount of alcohol here, though your hangover may be a little taxing.

1 bottle (750 ml) each:
        White rum
        White tequila
1-1/2 cups triple sec or orange liqueur
4 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 liter chilled Coke (4 cups)
1 liter chilled lemon-lime soda [7-UP or Sprite] (4 cups)

Mix vodka, gin, rum, tequila, triple sec and lemon juice in 3-gallon punch bowl. 
Chill overnight.  

Just before serving, stir in Coke and 7-UP.  Set up an ice bucket next to the punch bowl. Fill glasses with ice and add punch.

Plan ahead; if you start with chilled ingredients, you don't have to chill overnight.  Chill the vodka, gin, rum, and tequila in the freezer.

For a sweeter punch, substitute lemonade for lemon juice.

This punch is very strong.  Keep a close eye on your guests!

  1. Wonder how it would be to cut the strongness of this punch by adding 3 gallons of fresh made REAL Sweet Iced Tea?
