A Fruity Whiskey Collins

A Fruity Whiskey Collins

A Fruity Version of the Classic Whiskey Collins

I’m kind of in love with whiskey. It makes for wonderful cocktails year round. Don’t believe me? Try this awesome Fruity Whiskey Collins cocktail for the summer. And, then try this Honey, Orange, & Ginger Old Fashioned next Fall or Winter!

I made a batch of these bad boys for my husband’s Farm to Table Birthday Dinner Party. I set out a bottle of premixed ingredients and allowed guests to pour their own and top with soda water. It worked out really well. I had to make two batches because the drink was so popular.

Garnish the drink with a small orange and lemon wedge or top it with a cherry!
