I may have just found a new favorite cocktail. I does taste like tea. I left out the gin (gives me a headache) and just used a little more of the vodka and rum (I used Captain Morgan because that is the only rum I keep in the house) Absolutely loved it. Thanks NWGal. This is a keeper. Made for Zaar Stars :)

At first I felt silly because I hadn't thoroughly read the recipe and thought it included real tea. But I made it anyway. I made my own sweet and sour mix. It was pretty good. In hot weather this ice cold drink deceptively tastes like a really delicious iced tea :) Thanks for posting.

This is great! This has been about the same recipe that Ive always used to make my long island's at home, except with 1/2 oz of triple sec. The key to having a good long island is a good quality sweet and sour. Ive tried so many brands from even making my own and my top favorite is stirrings brand. Its actually called their lemon drop mix, but its the same thing as sweet and sour. Try it, or any other suggestions to what others use would be great also. Cookiedog's picture looks like it was a good kind since its so yellow in color. So cookiedog if you see this, please share what kind you used! Thanks :)

This took me back to my night club days when I used to drink Long Island Iced Teas. I used a really large glass with lots of ice and it made a nice refreshing drink for this warm spring day. Thanks NWG for another special treat!

This tea drink is fabulous! I really liked it. I'm not a big fan of gin - I think it tastes like pine needles - but I couldn't even tell in here. I used a spice rum instead of white because it's what I had on hand. Nice and sweet, but not overly girlie drink sweet. I really enjoyed it. Made and Reviewed for Every Day Holiday Tag - Thanks! :)
