Long Island Iced Tea
As someone with a small bladder, I sure can appreciate a Long Island Iced Tea.  This is one of few cocktails made of various liquors, four to be exact, plus a liqueur.  I love watching skilled bartenders make Long Island Ice Teas.  It's such a trip watching them pour all four liquors into the glass at the same time.  It's the cocktail that has the least amount of liquid all the while being highly potent, yet still decent-tasting, so all I need is one for the evening and I'm set.   …

About this drink

Wiki

A highball made with equal parts vodka, gin, rum, tequila, and triple sec with 1 1/2 parts sour mix with a splash of cola. Originally rumored to have been created during prohibition to resemble plain iced tea, the drink was actually the 1970s creation of Robert "Rosebud" Buttu, a bartender from Long Island.
