The Texas Tea can be served as either a single mixed drink or a very potent punch for a party. Just like the Long Island Iced Tea, this 'tea' includes a number of white liquors, making it easy to remember. All you need is equal parts tequila, rum, vodka, and triple sec, some sour mix, and cola. (You'll notice that this recipe drops the gin of the LIIT, which makes it easy to remember as well.
Recipes like this are convenient for parties. Mix a Texas Tea base of the liquors and sour mix and store it in the refrigerator. When ready to serve, shake your mix a little and pour it over ice, topping it with cola.
There is also a 'Texas Tea' that adds an equal part of bourbon.
