5 Places In Pune To Get The Best & Deadliest LIITs That Gets You Smaaaaashed!

A Long Island Iced Tea – or LIIT – sets everything straight, unless it’s your dog’s tail (Bad Joke, right?). That perfect blend of cola, vodka, tequila, rum, gin and triple sec, this amber-coloured ‘tea’ is way more powerful than it looks. And whenever we’re seeking a serious alcohol buzz, it tops our list.

These 5 bars in Pune have aced the art of shaking up the perfect LIIT for the nights you don’t wanna remember *wink wink*!

Swig – Bar & Eatery

Well, this one isn’t playing around when it comes to drinks, it’s got all the cocktails that you’ll ever need and then some. We’ve set our hearts on their Classic LIIT though! Make the most of Swig’s happy hours {until 9 pm, daily}. Did you read that, it says happy hours DAILY? I am going here right now.

Elephant & Co

At local hot-spot Elephant & Co. in Kalyani Nagar, depending upon the number of people and mood, go for either just a glass or a whole pitcher of this delightful cocktail here. It has 200ml of alcohol in it, which is more than what most of the bars put in their LIITs. They say ‘one glass is enough’, so try their classic version of the LIIT, or go for the more interesting ‘herbal tea LIIT’  – which we’re quite intrigued by. The herbal tea LIIT helps you stay hydrated, and is popular because of the lighter hangover.

The High Spirits

This bar knows what the people want and it gives it to them with different types of LIITs ranging from the classic version with a twist (head bartender Thiru’s secret recipe), or try a version with Red Bull, or the addition of JD Tennessee whiskey – this place has a LIIT for everyone! Thiru is a master at what he does, and his legendary LIIT will certainly elevate your evening to a new high.

 Mixologist Pranav Mody is a magician when it comes to potent potions. His version of the classic is the ‘Big Daddy LIIT’; featuring a citrus twist that makes this concoction so palatable. Perfect for an outing with friends – get the LIIT you fancy and snack on some delicious Cheesy Fries while chatting the night away!

The Urban Foundry

Long Island Iced Tea is a lethal combination of Smirnoff vodka, Bacardi rum, gin, Triple Sec, home-made sweet-and-sour mix and Coke. Refreshing and potent, this is the one thing which keeps us going back to TUF. The BIG Foundry LIIT can be ordered solo or community-style if you feel like sharing. The number of LIITs here might just be few but man, do they pack a punch!

The secret to a great time is friends, good food and some great LIITs thrown in the mix – which place are you headed to this weekend?



2spoons of drama! An obsession with beaches, matched with some healthy green tea, sprinkled generously with vodka and served best in a tall martini glass. I am a multi-tasking Empress. Totally a daddy's girl and a complete nomad. My life is a souffle of friends, fun n food. To me, a life that strikes a balance is ideal!
