Whiskey Collins

Collins drinks were drinks that I served often when I tended bar. They are good standbys for holiday like St. Patty's Day when you don't know what else to serve since so many people like them.

Here's a recipe for a classic whiskey collins.


  • 2-oz of blended whiskey
  • 1 tsp of powdered sugar
  • Splash of collins drink mix
  • Or the juice from 1/2 a lemon
  • 1 cherry
  • 1 orange slice
  • Carbonated water


  1. Pour the ingredients into a shaker that you've filled with ice.
  2. Use a bar strainer to pour it into a collins glass.
  3. Add some ice to the glass and top with the carbonated water.
  4. Garnish the whiskey collins recipe with the fruit.
  5. Serve with a cocktail straw.
