The original Collins

This Thursday Vino welcomes Mia Consiglio from Lucas Bols as we taste the original thirst-quencher, the Collins cocktail! Mia will be preparing this classic drink using the celebrated Dutch spirit, Bols Genever. Made from malt wine and a secret blend of botanicals, this protected product gives what Mia calls “The Original Collins” a pleasant depth and slight fruitiness.

The Original Collins
A large long-drink (Collins) glass
2 shots of Bols Genever
1 shot of freshly-squeezed lemon juice
1/2 shot of rich sugar syrup (2 parts sugar, 1 part water)
Soda water

Shake the Bols Genever, lemon juice and sugar syrup with large, hard, cold ice cubes, double-strain into an ice-filled Collins glass and top with soda water. Garnish with a lemon wedge, dropped in but not squeezed.
