The John Collins cocktail is a whiskey spin on the classic Tom Collins! This bubbly highball drink never disappoints.


  • 2 ounces* bourbon whiskey
  • 3/4 ounce simple syrup
  • 1 ounce lemon juice
  • 4 ounces soda water
  • Ice (try our clear ice!)
  • For the garnish: maraschino cherry, lemon wheel


  1. Add the bourbon whiskey, simple syrup and lemon juice to the highball glass and add ice.
  2. Top off the glass with soda water. Garnish with a lemon wheel and cocktail cherry.


*To convert to ounces, 1 ounce = 2 tablespoons
