Raleigh Collins Cocktail
This drink, inspired by New York City bartending legend Michael Waterhouse, is a great on a hot summer day. A twist on the classic Tom Collins, this drink combines tequila, lemon juice, simple syrup, and soda water to make a dangerously easy to drink, and refreshing, cocktail. Bottoms up Grilla Grill nation!
- 2 ozs. good tequila
- 1 oz. simple syrup
- 1 oz. lemon juice
- Splash soda water
In a cocktail shaker, add all ingredients and shake for at least ten seconds. Strain over fresh ice, into a Collins glass, and top with a splash of soda water. Garnish with a lemon wedge. Enjoy!!
