The Long Island Iced Tea

History of the “Long Island Iced Tea”
Legend has it that Old Man Bishop threw together a drink using rum, vodka, whiskey, gin, tequila, and maple syrup. Not unlikely during a time where booze was scarce and drinks needed to pack a punch. The "Old Man Bishop" was then refined and further doled out by his son, Ransom Bishop.
