Ah our favorite brothers, the Collinses. Each one takes a different spirit, but the essential recipe is the same for all. Ol’ John here prefers bourbon (but rye will do).
- 2½ parts Bourbon or Rye whiskey or Blended whiskey
- 1 part Lemon juice
- ¾ part Simple syrup or Lemon syrup or Oleo saccharum
- 2 parts Sparkling water
Shake everything with ice, except the sparkling water. Strain into an ice-filled tall glass (a collins glass would be best, naturally) and top with sparkling water. Garnish with a cherry and half of an orange wheel.
