Best one we've ever had! Made my own sweet and sour because didn't have the mix on hand: 2 T lemon juice, 2 T lime juice, 1 c water and 1/3 c sugar...

TGIF! The only thing I do different is garnish with a lemon instead of a lime. This is my all time favorite drink especially after a long week or if I have to endure family - raise your glass if you have family or in-laws from Hell. Whatever your reason for pouring yourself a tall one of these be careful because they go down easy and can give you a loose tongue (in other words don't drink one until AFTER the family is out of your sight or you just might just tell them what you think of them). Enjoy and thank you Mrs. Baxton! Now where'd I put my glass......

This is the correct way to make a LIIT! At my bar we halve this recipe (half ounce of each liquor and cut the mixers way down) and serve it in a catalina glass. Just a splash of coke on top of the sour mix.

An excellent recipe exactly as is. Obviously the better the spirits the better the drink, but don't use Tanguray gin...

This was very good. I followed the top review and cut back on the mixers. 1 part each of the alcohols and coke, to 2.5 parts sweet and sour. I watered mine down because I'm a lightweight, but my hubby drank his right up. Thanks for the recipe!

Summertime and this drink just go together. MMM An alternate version, the Long Beach, use silver tequila instead of gold and sub cranberry juice for the cola.

Excellent recipe for a favourite drink of mine, first time I ever made it myself. I wanted to make a whole pitcher's worth, so I increased everything. I couldn't find the sour mix, so I followed the top reviewer's measurements for making my own, times 3 - 3 cups water, a little less than 1 cup sugar, 5-6T each of lemon and lime juice. Then added between 1/2 to 3/4 cup of all the liquors and a whole can of Coke. Because it was in a pitcher, I just stirred, didn't shake. This gave us about 5-6 tall glasses worth of drink. I was drunk part way through just one...

Ohhhh ohhhh. So Smooth. Definitely make sure you're not driving after drinking this Long Island Iced Tea. Please ask Mrs. Baxton to invite me to her next party.

This is the best Long Island recipe that I've ever had! Make your own sweet and sour with equal parts sugar, water, and lemon. We mix up a big batch ahead of time when we are going to have guests or are going camping.

Pretty good one of the best I have had. If you want to make it with a twist try adding Cherry Coke.
