Just in case you find yourself really needing a stiff drink today, we’ve uncovered a collection of some of the strongest cocktails out there. Some have a crazy mix of booze, and others, just a lot of it. Hopefully you’ll be feeling no pain really soon (or at least, you'll stop being aware of it altogether). Cheers to that, if nothing else.
1. Long Island iced tea
Infamous at college parties everywhere, the classic Long Island Iced Tea includes an intimidating mix of gin, vodka, tequila, rum and triple sec. This recipe adds some strawberry to the mix, making the bitter but buzzworthy drink that much sweeter.
A cocktail classic, it involves gin Campari, and sweet vermouth. Beautiful Booze’s variant keeps the usual ingredients, but recreates them as a fizz, adding an egg white and orange syrup. It’s still very strong, but very delicious and will absolutely help you get through the afternoon. Whatever happens to be going on.
Whiskey AND absinthe make this typical New Orleans cocktail pack quite the punch. Drizly’s recipe stays true to tradition, which is just fine with us.
Rum, rum and more rum. The Zombie is a tropical drink known for having several different types of light and dark rum mixed with flavors like pineapple. Tommy Bahama shares their own take, which has four types of rum and Cointreau. Good luck with that.
5. Dry martini
A martini doesn’t mess with mixers; it’s vodka or gin and a lot of it, mixed with some vermouth. The dryer you go, the less vermouth you’ll have—which means, of course, the stronger the drink. Cigars and socks uses gin in this classic take.
