New York’s Long Island on the East Coast is famous for its iconic tea, which contains exactly zero tea but almost all the spirits in the world. As an homage to that arguably ill-conceived but highly effective cocktail, we offer a Vancouver Island version, which also happens to contain zero tea. These should not be consumed unsupervised.

For the cocktail
Use a Collins glass to serve.
Skewer the cherry tomato and lemon wedge on a sword.
Pour the rum, tequila, triple sec, gin, vodka, Caesar mix, and lemon juice into a cocktail shaker (or other mixing vessel). Fill the shaker with ice to just above the top of the liquid and stir with a bar spoon until the outside of the shaker is very cold to the touch.
Fill the glass three-quarters full with fresh cubed ice. Strain the contents of the shaker into the glass and top with additional ice if desired. Garnish with the sword pick.
