Big Kev's Texas Style Long Island Iced Tea Reviews

  • WHOA big Kev Any recipe with this much booze in it is bound to be delish I got a bit wobbly after 5 or 6 (lost count) Great helpful hint - start the BBQ BEFORE you get too deep into the potent tea Me and the Mrs. ended up eating black steaks...eeew

  • Yup. If your gonna do it, you might as well do it right. 1 of these is perfect. 2 of these are too many. And 3 just aint enough.

  • Whoa.....served this at a euchre (card) tournament party at my house. Let me just say, ended up with a sleepover. (we are in our 50s). the spare rooms, couches, etc. were used up. went through fifth of vodka, rum, gin, sweet and sour, triple sec. I have two shots of tequila left because i decided to try to lay low with that. this recipe should have a caution sign with it. oh, we didnt exactly finish the tournament.....10 games, 12 people. oh well, the prizes were distributed somehow

  • This was delicous but SUPER potent. We ended up adding more Coke to dilute it and still got VERY tipsy.

  • I thought this would be great for our backyard BBQ based on all good reviews. Made 3 gallons (big party) exactly as recipe states, used regular coke for the cola, but kept the coke separate so it didnt go flat. No one liked it at any rate of tea mix to cola. Had to dump in a bunch of sweet and sour and make it drinkable and still ended up with 2.5 gallons of wasted alcohol.

  • Tasty, but soooooo strong Had to tone it down a bit (I wanted to remember my kids names...)

  • Left out the tequila (none in the house) and added a splash of sweet and sour for kicks...delish Buzzing after 1/4 glass, yay

  • Big Kev is my new BESTEST friend Long Islands are my favorite mixed drink. I want to get my moneys worth if I am paying for a drink at a restaurant and I think this drink does just that. I love making Kevs version even better. A shot of this and then that makes making the drink easy especially after I have had one Tonight is New Years Eve and I know I will be having one of these......well, maybe two or three ENJOY

  • WOW These are great. But dont try to drink one and make dinner at the same time. They do sneak up on you fast.The second time we made them we added some Lipton peach tea powder and a little water. That was really good too. We didnt have any gin so made them without. Thanks for a fun summer drink

  • This is close to my favorite recipe for Long Island iced tea. But I switch out the Triple-sec for 1.5 oz of Sweet & Sour Mix, and add just enough Cola to color it like iced tea.

  • Glug, glug, glug Keep em commin Made mine with ginger ale, dont skimp on the booze - use "top-shelf" stuff and youll be in better shape the next day.

  • My husbands new favorite drink. Wow

  • Oh so yummy and dangerous Loved it

  • Just a note to those that dont get out and drink these in bars....they generally come in a pretty large a hurricane type glass if you are familiar with that...maybe if you use a frozen drink glass...the liquor will not overwhelm so you get to top off with MORE soda.

  • This is perfect

  • To each their own: this recipe has the booze down pat but after lots of trial and error weve found the perfect Long Island needs sweet and sour mix. Add some of that (3-5oz) and just top with the cola: potent perfection. Thanks for sharing :)

  • Made these at a party the other night. Fabulous Only thing I changed was to ad lemonade to it instead of a lemon wedge. So good. I had 3 for the night and that was plenty They were awesome. Everyone liked them.

  • Yummmy. I mixed all the alchohol, split it into two water glasses that were filled with ice with the soda and then topped that with diet Coke. Gettin the job DONE:)

  • Awesome. Used lots of ice. Thanks

  • Im from Long Island and Ive tried many Long Island Iced Teas. Im very picky about the taste of these cocktails. I like it to be smooth...not too strong. I made mine using 2.5 oz of orange juice instead of triple sec. And I only used 5 oz. of cola. I also added the juice of half a lemon. These changes were perfect for me.

  • Wow Enjoyed this but had to use half the alcohol and the full amount of cola.


  • Great recipe to multiply and serve by the pitcher

  • Wow Big Kev, way to go Made this recipe and the first sip instantly transported me to Binions Horseshoe Casino in Las Vegas - a good 20 years ago. My husband, the Long Island expert agreed. Kudos The second batch I did alter the recipe by cutting the Tequilla in half - its not a flavor I enjoy but without it the drink isnt a long island. By the third batch I didnt care This recipe is a keeper.

  • Fantastic The taste is amazing and its so easy to make

  • We mixed this up for our first BBQ of the year. We had 4 guests coming to the party (and I dont drink much alcohol), so we multiplied the original measurements by 16, mixed all the booze beforehand and then added the cola just before serving. HUGE hit Will definitely keep this one on file. :)

  • A true Long Island iced tea Delicious
