AMF

AMF Cocktail
Matthew Kelly/Supercall

If you’ve ever wanted to order a Long Island Iced Tea but thought the extra strong libation was just too darn serious, then boy have we got the cocktail for you. The AMF, the beloved Long Island’s azure cousin, is a more colorful way to efficiently order everything but the kitchen sink at a bar. Long before we at Supercall started riffing on the monster of a Highball, this unassuming blue version was tearing up drinkers, just like its dark and intimidating cousin. While the dyed drink maintains the LIIT’s mixture of vodka, tequila, rum and gin, the AMF replaces the triple sec with blue curaçao, which keeps the orange notes in the final cocktail but adjusts the tint. We don’t want to know what color blue curaçao turns when mixed with Coca-Cola, so thankfully the AMF swaps the dark cola for light and spritzy lemon-lime soda. You’ll want to keep your spirits clear, not only to preserve the blue curaçao’s bright appearance, but also because darker, heavier spirits will only weigh down this towering inferno of flavor even more.

Whereas the Long Island may be appropriate for a dark dive where you don’t mind getting judged for your over-the-top order, the citrusy bent to the AMF, along with its royal color, make it almost beachy, though we wouldn’t suggest ordering one before baking in the sun. The name, which stands for “Adios Mother F*cker,” was inspired by the cocktail’s potency and what bartenders would say to the people who drank them. So proceed with caution.
