Okay, so there's a few variations of this drink and every one of them is amazing! First, you have the original Tom Collins, then John Collins, Mike Collins and their bratty but still delicious little sister, Sandy Collins. My prescription to you is to try them all.
- 2 oz Bourbon
- 1 oz Lemon Juice If you care about yourself at all, choose fresh. Always fresh.
- .5 oz Simple Syrup Avoid complicated syrups
- 5 oz Club Soda
- 1 slice Lemon
- 1 slice Orange
- 1 whole Maraschino Cherry
Fill a shaker full of ice
Add your liquid ingredients, the bourbon, lemon juice, and simple syrup
Shake it over your head while screeching "don't look at me"
Strain into an ice-filled collins glass and top with some chilled club soda
Garnish with the fruit and BAM you're back to sippin
