A classic ‘Collins’ cocktail is made with a main spirit blended with fresh lemon juice, simple syrup (to counter the sour citrus flavor of the lemon) and then topped with chilled soda water.


  • 2 ounces spirit of your choice
  • 3/4 - 1 ounce fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 - 3/4 ounce simple syrup
  • Soda water, chilled


  1. Place all of the ingredients, except for the soda water, into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
  2. Vigorously shake the mixture for 35 seconds and then strain into a cocktail glass.
  3. Top the drink with the chilled soda and then serve immediately.
