Tesla Collins

Tesla Collins highball cocktail with Slivovitz, lemon juice, simple syrup, vanilla syrup, honey syrup, oleo saccharum, and club soda

The Tesla Collins was a fall specialty at the Macao Trading Co. in New York, invented by mixologists Ivan Radulovic Danilo Bozovic. In it, a dry plum brandy (like slivovitz) is paired with a profusion of syrups and lightened with lemon and club soda, for a rich plummy flavor just perfect for the warm transition from summer to autumn.

The original recipe called for a house vanilla-citrus-honey syrup. We’ve broken that down to its component parts, and also reworked the ratios just slightly to keep the sweetness in check.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
