The Irish Coffee
The Whiskey Sour
The John Collins is a tasty whiskey sour drink that is perfect for any occasion. It makes an excellent everyday sipper that can be poured in just a few minutes. It is also a nice way to show off our whiskey in a simple, refreshing style.
This is, essentially, a tall version of the Whiskey Sour. Other than the soda and ice (and maybe a few tweaks here and there), the Collins and Sour are practically the same drink. This makes it very easy to remember both of these popular recipes, which all bartenders should know how to mix.
To make this drink, you’ll need the following:
First step will be to pour the whiskey, lemon juice, and syrup into a Collins glass filled with ice cubes.
Next, stir thoroughly.
Top with club soda.
Garnish with a cherry and orange slice. Serve and enjoy.
In all ‘Collins’ drinks, there are two basic options for creating the sour component.
To keep a nice balance in the drink, it really is best to use fresh-squeezed lemon juice. By separating the sweet and sour, you have more control. You’ll want that, especially as you experiment with whiskeys because you can adjust the two elements to fit the liquor you’re pouring at the moment.
