You will need
· 10 ml vodka
· 10 ml white rum
· 10 ml gin
· 10 ml triple sec
· 10 ml tequila
· 1 lime or lemon
· some cola
· some ice
· 1 long glass
· 1 knife
· some straws
· 1 chopping board
· 1 cocktail shaker
· 1 shot measure
Add 10 ml of vodka to a glass. Then add the same amount of rum, and the same amount of gin. Then add 10 ml of triple sec, the sweet orange flavoured liqueur. Lastly, add the tequila.
Take the lemon or lime, whichever you prefer, and cut it in half. Squeeze both halves and add 50ml of juice to the shaker.
Put plenty of ice in the serving glass too. Fill the rest of the mixing glass with cubed ice.
Fill three quarters of the serving glass with chilled cola.
Press down firmly to seal, and shake vigorously over your shoulder for about 20 seconds.
When you see condensation on the outside of the shaker and it feels very cold, you know that the cocktail is thoroughly mixed.
Release the top by rocking it back and forth.
Strain the spirits into the serving glass.
Add a lemon wedge to the edge of the glass, a couple of straws to the drink, and serve.
