Sometimes the beauty of a mixed drink lies in its simplicity. The refreshing and lively Vodka Collins is the perfect example! Light, tart, and slightly sweet, I could drink these all day long! The crisp combination of vodka, simple syrup, lemon juice, and soda water makes this drink extra charming and easy to enjoy.
Whether relaxing on a summer day, happy hour with friends, a casual dinner at home or because it’s simply Tuesday, you’ll find the Vodka Collins and its exceptional fizz fitting. It’s in the collins family, along with the classic Tom Collins (uses gin) only differing by vodka being the spirit employed.
