A booze battle is brewing!

Bartenders in Long Island, New York and Long Island, Tennessee (which is a part of Kingsport, Tennessee) are both trying to claim the bragging rights for having created the Long Island Iced Tea.

Now, the states are challenging each other to an "Iced Tea Off."

A restaurant in New York is planning on having a bunch of people come in to try to different drinks, one made by a New York bartender and another from a Tennessee bartender.

Long Island, Tennessee's Visitors Bureau says it's up for a little friendly competition and plans to accept the challenge.

No word yet on when the "Iced Tea Off" will take place.
