Vodka Collins

Oh, hiiiiiii!

How are you today? Me? I’m great. I’ve just discovered my most favoritest drink recipe in all the land.

How many of them did I drink, you ask?

Well, how many do you think is too many? Because I drank one less than that.

I’ve been making these with my homemade sweet and sour mix, which FYI, is divine.

Oh…did I mention the vodka? It’s sorta divine too. Only because you can’t even taste it.

So, yep. You should drink one or three of these.

    Ohmigosh. I love you…because I think you just taught me how to make Collins Mixer. I’m guessing sweet and sour and club soda? Funny thing – my parents never drank but we always had Collins Mixer in the house and it was my FAVORITE drink. Now I can make my own, adult style!

    @Dorothy @ Crazy for Crust,

    Yes! Try it with gin for a Tom Collins! I think some people add a cherry or a little grenadine, but not me. :)

    OK!! I was wondering how to turn this all Thomas Collins-y. That’s my hubby’s fave drink. I’m excited to make this for him!!

    One less than too many for me might be one and a half because…I’m kind of a lightweight. They sound awesome though!!

    As a child, collins mix was my favorite “fancy drink” to celebrate with as my parents and their friends made the most of happy hour. Now I’m a vodka drinker myself, but never thought to combine the two. I will definitely try your sweet and sour mix. Thanks!

    Yummy! And these are so good if made with vanilla vodka or raspberry vodka. Too bad I can’t have a little one of these while I am at work right now :( lol

    What brand of vodka did you use in this recipe.

    I usually use either Smirnoff or Absolut, but any would work!

    YUM! Made this last night and it was so refreshing. My usual drink is a diet gin and tonic, and this was just as good. I guess I’ll have to have one every night since I now have the mix in the fridge, ready to go… :)
