    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...  -  06 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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......  -  30 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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.  -  12 Oct 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
