Frequently Asked Question (FAQ)

Long Island Sparkler vs. Classic Iced Tea?
Similar to how SodaStream recipes put a spin on classic drinks, the Long Island Sparkler Cocktail maintains the essence of the original but adds a layer of sophistication and excitement with the addition of SodaStream Sparkling Water.
Where does the name derive from?
The Long Island Iced Tea cocktail is called "Long Island" because it originated in the vicinity of Long Island, New York, despite containing no actual tea, and its deceptive name references its clear appearance, which resembles iced tea, a creative way to discreetly enjoy alcoholic beverages during the Prohibition era.
Can a Long Island be turned into a Texas Tea?
A Long Island Iced Tea can be transformed into a Texas Tea by infusing it with a Southern twist, replacing some ingredients with regional favourites like tequila, bourbon, rum, vodka, sweet and sour mix, and cola, resulting in a spirited concoction that captures the bold essence of Texan flavours.
