Second only to the margarita, this is a favorite drink of mine. You have a great recipe here. Smooth and tastes like a lemony glass of iced tea. I also think this is much better than Applebee's. Watch out, it really sneaks up on you. Thanks Tara.

This is exactly how applebee's makes it. If you want a top shelf long island, use smirnoff vodka, bacardi superior rum, tanqueray gin. also - if you add tequilla it is called a TEXAS BEACH tea

I used to work at Applebee's as a bartender, for some reason they do not put tequilla in the long island. If you want tequilla, at applebee's (at least the one I worked at)it's called a Texas Tea. This recipe is right on. My favorite is to put cranberry juice in instead of the cola. It's called a long beach iced tea and it is so good.
