It is a tokya tea yes.
You make it almost exactly like a long island, except subtract coke and add midori splash instead.
1 part each:tequila, vodka, rum, gin, splash of sours and triple sec, and top with midori.

there is the Long Beach... cran insted of coke to top off a regular LI,  then there is Italian tea with amoretto in place of Triple sec and 7up as the top, then the adios mother F*#ker that replaces the triple sec with Blue caraco and top with 7up... the Tokyo tea does not have triple sec it is the Madori that replaces it

Midori is a bright green honeydew melon liqueur that originally came from Japan. It hit the US market in 1978. Midori means "green" in Japanese. Another company (not in Japan) owns it now...I forget who. There are other generic melon liqueurs out there but none of them taste as good as Midori.

Anyway, yes you replace the orange liqueur (tripe sec) with the melon liqueur then instead of coke you use Sprite/7UP. So the recipe is:

.5 oz vodka
.5 oz gin
.5 oz rum
.5 oz tequila
.5 oz Midori
2 oz sweet-n-sour
splashes of Sprite

If you want more melon taste then add more melon liqueur.
