The John Collins dates back to 1869 in London and is a 'cousin' of the Tom Collins. While 'Tom' uses Gin, 'John' is more of a Whiskey guy. Depending on what kind of day you're having, it's good to have both of these dudes around...just in case. Let's get mixin'!
2 ounces of Whiskey (Bourbon!!)
The juice of half a lemon
1 teaspoon of sugar
3 ounces of club soda
Cherry & orange slice for garnish
Pour the Whiskey, lemon juice and sugar into a shaker with ice.
Strain into a glass with fresh ice.
Add the club soda.
Garnish with an orange slice and cherry.
