This IS the Original and Famous LIIT recipe! You got it so right Sledge! and guess where I am from Long Island, NY! The only thing I do differently is put it all in the Tom Collins glass and then roll it into a shaker and back in the Tom Collins glass and then garnish with lemon!

This recipe is great. I usually mix a bit more sour mix with the drink but after two of these you are feeling pretty good.
