A good cocktail doesn’t taste great just because of the alcohol it’s mixed with. It all starts with the bartender. He or she is responsible for concocting the best combination of liquor and mixer. From our signature Long Island Ice Tea to a simple rum and coke, every drink should be made with care. If you want a good drink in 2015, then go to the location of the Best Bartenders on Long Island.
