Vodka Collins

There's so many Collins drinks out there, but this one seems as if it fits the the general rule. I'm increasingly finding that a Collins glass is not sufficient to hold a Collins drink. That's because a three ounce pour of vodka, plus sugar syrup and lemon, plus ice leaves little room for soda. I grabbed a beer pint instead, and that worked out pretty well.
  • 3 oz. vodka (Smirnoff 57 used)
  • 2 oz. lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz. sugar syrup
  • sparkling water
  • maraschino cherry
  • orange slice
Combine vodka, sugar syrup and lemon juice in a shaker with ice. Shake and pour into a chilled Collins glass (pint pictured). Top with sparkling water and garnish with fruit.
