Vodka Collins

Vodka Collins recipe

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… :)

    You should know that this is somehow EVEN BETTER with whipped cream flavored vodka. It tastes like pie.
