The Blackbirds play about 10 blocks from Edible Bracket HQ, so we were hoping they’d make it past round 1 (alas!). But we did (re-)discover our love for Long Island Iced Teas while making this drink in the Birds’ honor.  Seriously, why did we stop drinking these after college? Even Guest Pug Millie got in on the fun.
