April 25, 2014 – The Republic Steakhouse

Mike Collins
3/4 to 1 oz. lemon juice
1/4 ti 3/4 oz. simple syrup
2 oz. Irish whiskey
Stemmed cherry

Stir first three ingredients over ice in a collins glass. Fill with soda and garnish with cherry and lemon slice.

Again, I asked for Red Breast Irish whiskey. The first sip made me feel like I was sitting in my back yard on a warm evening after work. It is infinitely sippable. Not too sweet, not too tart, and slightly fizzy.

Most people have heard of the most popular of the many cousins of the collins clan, the Tom Collins, which is made with gin. With the exception of the Rum Collins, each liquor variation has an appropriate moniker: Pedro, Captain, Sandy, Pepito… and so on. I’m looking forward to making all of their acquaintances.

Saúde! (Galician)
