Directions[edit | edit source]

  1. Shake all the ingredients except the Coca cola with ice and strain into a highball glass.
  2. Pour the Coca cola on the top and serve with lemon slice (don't forget it has to look like an iced tea, so don't pour too much Coca cola).

  2. Add equal parts of vodka, gin, rum, and triple sec.
  3. Add sweet and sour, leaving some room on top.
