A blend of 5 White spirits, a touch of sweet&sour, with a coke top (and no tea!) . It really shouldn’t work but for some reason it actually really does!

 

Bartender Tip:

Switch out the coca cola for different mixers such as Cranberry juice for a Long Beach Iced Tea or Pineapple Juice for a Hawaiian iced tea…
