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.
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!
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...
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.
I made it and the gold tequila is way too over-powering use silver or omit it from the recipe completely as tequila offers nothing to a LIIT. I made my own simple syrup with equal parts fresh squeezed lemon juice lime juice hot water sugar (first disolved in the hot water and cooled) and only 3 ounces vs. 5. It should taste almost like a tea not too tart or sweet just smooth and dangerous! Delicious drink one of my favorites and i've made just about every decent recipe I can find to try out new things. They never make them right at most local bars.
