(Irish) Whiskey Collins

The Tom Collins is a gin drink with lots of lemon and soda. It's reputedly an Irish cocktail named after a fictitious man with the gift of the gab. That's why I chose to make the whiskey variant with an Irish whiskey, and not just any Irish whiskey. Glendalough double barrel is about as close to bourbon as an Irish whiskey can get, with part of its aging in ex-bourbon barrels and a high corn component of its grain composition.
  • 3 oz. whiskey (Glendalough double barrel used)
  • 2 oz. lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz. simple syrup
  • club soda
  • maraschino cherry
  • orange slice
Combine whiskey, lemon juice and soda in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a Collins glass full of fresh ice and top with soda. Garnish with cherry and orange slice.
