The Tornado is a very strong mixed drink that makes a great visual impression. It's similar to a Long Island Iced Tea, complete with four spirits and a shot of cola, but this one is a little different. The manner in which it is prepared and served is integral into the effect and name behind the drink. When done right you'll have a miniature twister inside your glass, complete with flying debris (ice and sugar).
